IERULLO Bruno (Father) - Argentina

Vallelonga (Italy), 21 March 1943 - Buenos Aires (Argentina), 2 June 2015

Fr Bruno Ierullo SCJ

Father Bruno Ierullo was born in Vallelonga, Calabria, on 21 March 1943. It was at the age of 12 that he emigrated with his family to America with his father, his mother and five younger brothers. Even as a child he helped his parents by working on modest tasks such as selling vegetables on the market or shining shoes in Avellaneda. After a few years, the family he always loved came to live in Wilde, a district of Avellaneda where they still live. He then entered the Bétharramite Apostolate at Barracas at the age of 13, where, over time, his vocation matured. He did his novitiate and studied at the seminary in Villa Bétharram at Adrogué. As for his studies, he pursued them at Rafael Calzada taught by the Fathers of the Divine Word; there he developed his interest in philosophy and theology. In 1969 he was ordained a priest in the chapel of the Holy Family of Adrogué (Bétharram). He began his ministry as a religious priest, first at Villa Bétharram going into ordinary neighbourhoods, still devoted to the catechesis of children and the service of the poorest people. There he met a group of young, engaged and married people who helped him realize his dream: the children’s home of Our Lady of Bétharram which he founded 40 years ago!
