Letter from Daniel Mascioli to Reverend D.J. Harrington, November 4, 1940
This is a one page typewritten letter from Daniel Mascioli to Reverend D.J. Harrington, dated November 4, 1940. The Reverend is referred to as Captain, K. of C. Hut in Petawawa.
Daniel asks the Reverend to have a mass on November 19 "for the repose of the soul of my mother...and also another mass on November 10 for the repose of the soul of my grandfather. It will afford spiritual consolation to my father if these masses are celebrated at the internment camp and he can attend." Also interned were priests, such as Father Maltempi and Reverends Balo, Sauro, and Scalera, who apparently also held mass at the camp for their fellow internees.
Leopoldo (Leo) Mascioli, along with his brother, Antonio (Tony) Mascioli were both interned at Camp Petawawa during WWII. Leo's wife died in 1914 and left Leo with three children.
