My Dear Friends,

To sin or not to sin?” That is the question. February 14th we will begin the holy, penitential season of Lent. Answering the question always implies a conscious decision to choose God or sin. There is no room for both. As we begin Lent, it’s time to make a decision about our relationship with our Lord. There are so very many opportunities our parish offers during Lent and Holy Week to come closer to God. Look for the annual parishioner mailing which will be arriving soon. Check elsewhere on this site. The point is: if we really want to do something we always find the time to do it. This includes worshipping God, praying individually as well as in conjunction with others within our parish. 

I would like to call your special attention to our annual Lenten Parish Retreat which will be at 7:00 P.M. on Monday, March 19th, Tuesday, March 20th, and Wednesday, March 21st. This year we are blessed to have direct us Sister Miriam James Heidland, an international speaker who will just “knock our socks off” with her spiritual presentations. Please! Don’t miss this one, and don’t come late. The retreat will include confessions on Tuesday and holy Mass on Wednesday. Bring the family. Children are always welcome at Saint Francis.

Special congratulations to all our parishioners who continue to support our Organ Restoration Fund with large and small gifts. Very few parishes would accomplish what we have in such a short time. Since the week after Thanksgiving we have almost completed our fundraising so that the work can begin in the middle of June and be completed in October. Thanks to George Trapp, the Chairman of our fundraising efforts as well as the Chairman of our parish Finance Council, to Kara Kwiatkowski, our Executive Assistant, and to David Liantonio, our parish Business Administrator, and to so many members of our Ambassadors Committee and others, this project will be successful. 

BRING THE CHILDREN! It is quite noticeable that more and more parents are bringing their children to Sunday Masses. God bless you! They are so sweet, we priests and deacons can’t wait to greet them on the way out of the Cathedral. Thank you for sharing the blessings they are.

God bless all of you, my dear sisters and brothers! You are so supportive of our parish, and I ask our Lord through the intercession of our Blessed Mother and Saint Francis of Assisi to hear your prayers and to bless you abundantly by fulfilling all your needs.

In Christ’s service,

                                                              
Rev. Msgr. Robert J. Zamorski
