Saturday,September 9th – Sunday, September 17th

Young Adult GroupClick here to download this week’s bulletin I am glad to share with you the good news that church completion is nearing its end. The Office of His Eminence, Cardinal Sean, has informed us that he accepted our invitation to come to bless and dedicate this historic church on Sunday, December 17th, 2017, at the 12:00 noon Mass. I am sure that you will join His Eminence and all of us on this joyful occasion.

There is also more good news that I would like to share with you and that is the acceptance of six new candidates to the Franciscan way of life. As they will be received as postulants on September 17th at our mother church of St. Anthony in Manhattan. They will pursue their year-long program right next door to us at 14 North Bennet Street. Fathers Ronald Gliatta and Bruce Zapla are the directors of the program. Fr. Claude and I are also marginally involved in their formation and St. Leonard Parish will be one of their fields of ministry. Please pray for their perseverance as they are discerning their call to the Franciscan way of life and eventually priestly ministry. Pray also for more vocations to consecrated life and ministerial service in the Church.

Thank you for your kind consideration and God bless you!

Antonio Nardoianni, OFM
