Father Alliata had one sister and is survived by one brother. He was baptized at Holy Rosary, the 
Italian parish in Washington, and later attended St. Joseph’s Home and School and St. Martin’s 
School in Washington. He then attended St. Charles College in Catonsville, MD and St. Mary’s 
Seminary in Baltimore. He was ordained as a priest of the Archdiocese of Washington in 1961. 
 
He served as an associate pastor at St. Matthias Parish in Lanham, then as an associate pastor at 
Assumption and St. Joseph on Capitol Hill. He later served as associate pastor at Sacred Heart

In 1974 Father Alliata was named as the Pastor of Holy Angels in Avenue, MD. In 1980 he

He served there until he retired in 2010. 
 
During his time as a priest he was very involved in Worldwide Marriage Encounter and the 
Cursillio Movement. He said he was inspired by the faith of the people he met in those activities.
