The local paper, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle, has published a report on NET TV’s own Msgr. Jamie and his show, Breaking Bread:
Monsignor Jamie Gigantiello discovered a creative way of blending his vocations of chef and Catholic priest. He does so, joyfully, through teaching and hosting “Breaking Bread,” a weekly program on Catholic NET-TV that celebrates Brooklyn’s richly ethnic neighborhoods. Msgr. Jamie, as he is popularly known, also utilizes his talents, skills and experience in culinary and hotel management. He serves as Administrator of St. Bernard Parish, Mill Basin and as the Vicar for Development for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn.
Always actively involved in the church, Msgr. Jamie served as a lector, Eucharistic minister of Communion and retreat team leader starting during his school. But it would be a while before the priesthood became his primary vocation in life. But he did trust the wisdom of God’s timing.
