Monsignor Gerard O’Connor and the parish of St. Francis Xavier wish you and yours a very peaceful and blessed Thanksgiving. We pray for peace throughout the world as we are thankful for all the good things that God has bestowed upon us. We pray especially for peace in the Middle East and the protection of all those under threat from the violence of terrorism and its inexcusable hatred. We pray also for all our military personnel serving overseas or who are away from their homes during the holidays. May the Lord keep them safe and secure and return them to their families who eagerly await their return. Please join us on Thanksgiving Day for our only Mass of the day at 9am.
