“In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.
If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?” Jn. 14:2
At the core of Jesus’ own message is the longing to be with us forever. He tells His disciples that He is preparing a place to be with them forever. This is where we are headed...to heaven...to be with Jesus forever, and that is what a parish’s mission is all about – getting people to heaven, to Jesus forever.
This is why we celebrate the fact that St. Francis de Sales in Akron, Ohio has been loving and caring for souls for 75 years! The history, the people, staff members, teachers, the many religious, deacons and priests that served here are astounding. Reaching these milestones is always a cause for rejoicing. Here are opportunities for celebrating the parish this summer.
Looking forward to this time to celebrate together!
