Fall 2017

Dear Parishioners,

May our dear Blessed Mother envelope us with her intercession during October, the Month of the Rosary, and always. Through Mary we ask our loving Savior to forgive our sins and to hear the prayers we offer for ourselves and for others. Probably the most known prayer offered through our Blessed Mother is the holy rosary. Saint Francis Cathedral Parish will take part in the national ROSARY RALLY outside on the plaza on Saturday, October 14th at 12:00 Noon. We ask all our parishioners to take part and to spread the message to all we know.

Please join us in the Cathedral on Wednesday, October 4th at 9:00 A.M. – the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi – when Saint Francis Cathedral School will celebrate holy Mass. As was recently announced, Saint Francis Cathedral School has been honored nationally as a BLUE RIBBON SCHOOL (one of 342 schools in the United States). Congratulations to Mrs. Barbara Stevens, our Principal, and to our entire school family for this outstanding recognition. Please watch for event coming up regarding our school.

This month is also traditionally Respect Life Month when we call particular attention to the cause of ending the plague of abortion in our country and world. Please take part in one other Life Chain events held in each of the counties of our diocese.

Very important to all our lives also, is our diocesan recognition of law enforcement once again at our annual Blue Mass to be celebrated at 10:30 A.M. on Thursday, October 12th.  All are welcome to join Bishop Checchio who will celebrate the Mass with hundreds of officers from throughout our state. Let us keep these dedicated men and women in our prayers including those who gave their lives in their service.

We priests ask for your prayers as we will gather with Bishop Checchio October 24-26 at our annual Priests’ Convocation. Eucharistic services will be celebrated in our Cathedral each morning in place of Mass. We are grateful to our Deacons and Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist for help us.

The Catholic Company is an on-line religious goods store (books and many other items) which can be accessed by the link on our parish web site. We have vetted this store, and we recommend it to all especially since our parish book store is no longer open. Purchases can be made on line. There is a wide range of items, and the company is reputable.

Come to Mass! Bring your children!

In Christ’s service,

                                                              
Rev. Msgr. Robert J. Zamorski
Rector
