Pope Francis Celebrates His First Anniversary as Pope
On March 19, 2013 the world celebrated with great joy the inauguration of Pope Francis. We invite you to join us as we give thanks to the Lord our God for the blessing of Pope Francis as we honor the first year of his pontificate. As we approach the end of his first year, let us keep Pope Francis in our prayers and thoughts. May our Lord continue to bless him with the wisdom, understanding, courage, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord as he needs to shepherd the Church here on earth. Let us also remember to give thanks for having been blessed with a shepherd who extends to all of God’s children the infinite love of God for each of us especially as it was poured out in the sacrifice of the cross.

Thank you also to the Parish ONE Campaign Committee: Michelle Rose, Carlos Palacios, Elaine Norwood, Pilar Sheahon, Cathy Sucharski, John Wihl, the Saadeh family, and the many volunteers who helped throughout the Campaign.
