On July 27 and 28, 2019 at all Masses, two Franciscan Friars, Fr. Ed Tverdek and Fr. Ed Shea, were guests of our parish. During their visit, they asked our support for the Franciscan Missions and Missionaries in accord with the Missionary Plan of cooperation of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. The Franciscan Friars of Sacred Heart Province (St. Louis-Chicago) engage in missionary work in Brazil, Africa, Russia, Morocco and Vietnam. They also work among the Native American people in Alaska, Michigan and Wisconsin, African-Americans in Louisiana, Tennessee and Illinois and the Spanish-speaking people in Texas, Indiana and Illinois.
Enjoy the Homily by Fr. Ed Shea in one of our Masses!
