Ven. Teodoreto Garberoglio


Br. Teodoreto (Giovanni Garberoglio) was born in Vinchio (Alessandria, Italy) on February 9, 1871.

He spent forty years at the school of S. Pélagie in Turin as teacher, inspector, and Director. God wanted to make use of this holy soul to graft onto the Lasallian tree a branch full of promise. He was the founder of the “Catechists of Jesus Crucified and of Mary Immaculate“, a Congregation for lay people.

Members of this pious union propose to live not only on authentic Christian life, but also to practice the evangelical counsels while continuing to live with their families and to practice their proper professions.

The Servant of God died in Turin on May 13, 1954. The diocesan process was transferred to Rome on February 2, 1977.
