Our parish will begin learning the “Mass of St. Frances Cabrini” in the coming weeks of October. It begins at #902 in the “Breaking Bread” Missals in our pews, if you’d like to take a look through the melodies ahead of time. A really nice work, dedicated to America’s first saint, a naturalized citizen of the U.S., originally from Lombardy, Italy, who founded an order of missionary sisters to aid those living in the slums of New York City. She founded many Catholic Schools, Hospitals and Care Facilities for the poor and indigent.
