Father Giacomo Capoverdi, 43, is eager to help OSPRI spread the message that family must be reenergized, churches must be remobilized and the communities must be reempowered to solve their own problems rather than being paralyzed by dependency on the State.
Expressing concern over the direction our state has gone, Father Capoverdi said, "there was a day when our citizens didn't look to government to take care of them because the network of family, faith and friends filled that need. It is imperative that Rhode Island return to the virtues of personal responsibility and individual liberty that made this country great."
Father Capoverdi, with his vast experience and knowledge working on policy issues at national and state levels, will be OSPRI's champion in this arena of ideas.
"I love Rhode Island and there is no other place I would rather live, but it is well known that Rhode Islanders are heavily taxed in order to fund mammoth social services," said Father Capoverdi, "but what people might not realize is that Rhode Islanders also have a long tradition of giving among the lowest amounts, per capita, to charity. This is an embarrassment. We need to reduce what government takes from us and increase what we 'give'."
Reflecting on the beautiful words of our first Catholic President, John F. Kennedy, when he said, 'Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,' Father Capoverdi adds, "Ask what you can do for your brother."
Born and raised in the Elmhurst section of Providence, Father Capoverdi is a graduate of LaSalle Academy and Rhode Island College, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics. He attended seminary at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., where he studied Theology and obtained a Masters of Divinity degree in 1996. Before entering the seminary, Father Capoverdi worked as an assistant to the Rhode Island State Legislature as a page to the House of Representatives from 1985 to 1987 and as an Administrative Assistant for two Mayors of Providence from 1987 to 1991.
Father Capoverdi was ordained a priest in 1997 and is currently the assistant pastor of St. Joan of Arc Church in Cumberland, RI. He is also a director with the Washington, D.C. based "Pro-Life Action Center" and hosts a national weekly Internet radio show at www.nationalproliferadio.com called "Keeping The Faith."
