Mascolo was born in Irsina, Italy at an unknown date. He was an ordained as priest of the Diocese of Matera-Irsina and was sent to Brazil as a missionary. The current leader, Mgr Dante Luis Bergonzi of the Argentine Catholic Apostolic Church (ICAA), states that Mascolo's mission in Brazil was to undermine the Brazilian Catholic Apostolic Church, or ICAB. He converted to ICAB and was consecrated as an ICAB bishop in 1964 by Antidio Jose Vargas. He was ICAB's bishop in Rio de Janeiro, and consecrated the first bishop and Patriarch of the Argentine Catholic Apostolic Church, Leonardo Morizio Dominguez, in 1972. It is unknown if his actions against the Catholic Church resulted in excommunication by the Vatican.
