Michael Palumbo recently became an Eagle Scout and says he has a Catholic priest to thank for helping him get there.

His project to earn the distinction involved restoring seating and storage areas of the local little league ball field.

Michael began his scouting career in 3rd grade, but he credits Monsignor Theo Joseph from St Ephrem’s Parish in Dyker Heights as a huge influence in his life.

Monsignor Joseph even gave the invocation and closing prayer at the scout ceremony.

Michael also got a letter of congratulations from the Bishop of Brooklyn.
