Father Michael Sgarioto, the pastor of St. Anastasias Roman Catholic Church on Teaneck Road, died Friday of an apparent heart attack, according to a NorthJersey.com report.
Sgarioto, a Carmelite priest, was 56. He took over the Teaneck church in July following more than two decades as a missionary in Peru. Sgarioto is from Chicago and replaced Father Daniel O’Neill, the report said.
The church will receive friends and family at the church Monday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. A prayer service will be held at 7 p.m. A funeral mass will be held Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the church.
