Sunday, January 28, was a turning point day in the life of our parish, and for me, personally.
As you can see from the photographs attached, we were joined by our Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted, and my fellow Jesuits, to celebrate mass as I was installed as the Pastor of St. Francis Xavier Parish. The day was joyous!
I ask you to join me in looking forward prayerfully, in appreciation of the blessings which the Lord has in store for us this year, as we continue to serve Him with a lively faith as “men, women and kids for others,” living out the Gospel of Love, and Faith which does Justice. It is our mission to be in service to others, to be just toward others, and to wholeheartedly embrace all who enter our doors.
I look forward to serving you as Pastor, and to what the new year will bring.
With God's Blessings for each of you,
- Fr. George V. Wanser, S.J.
