Rev. Luigi Turco (1890- ) was born in Riesi, Italy. He came to the United States in 1913, worked in shoe factories in Boston and Wakefield, Massachusetts, and in 1915 converted to the Italian Baptist Church. He attended Colgate Theological Seminary (Brooklyn, N.Y.), and served as pastor of Italian Baptist Churches in Passaic (New Jersey), Buffalo (New York), and Meriden (Connecticut). Having read the works of Thomas Troward and Earnest Holmes, Turco became involved in the 1950s in the New Thought movement, particularly Divine Science and Religious Science. He intended to start a church in Meriden based on New Thought principles.
