My Dear St. Francis de Sales Family,

We have had one beautiful year of clelbrations for our 70th Anniversary Jubilee year! it is time to bring it to a glorious close of thanksgiving.

I'm personally inviting you to bring your family and friends for three evenings as Father Emmanuel Mansford, a Franciscan Friar from Harlem, New York City (and friend of mine), helps us prepare our hearts to further receive Emmanuel into our daily lives.

The Parish Mission takes place November 18th - 20th in the Church at 7:00 p.m.

Let's celebrate the devout love we share in Jesus and the gift of our Parish by faithfully filling the pews all three evenings.

Fr. G. David Bline
