Extend the Table Celebration
On behalf of the Extend the Table/125th Celebration Committee and the staff of St. Francis Xavier Parish, we wish to thank everyone for participating in our wonderful event this past Saturday, September 16th. We are overjoyed at the number of people (well over 1600) who came to celebrate Mass with Bishop George Leo Thomas along with the many priests from the Missoula Deanery and Western Montana. We were blessed with a beautiful fall day and the presence of so many people from our Missoula Catholic community. We especially wish to thank Bishop Thomas for celebrating this historic occasion with us and for the many sponsors who helped make an event of this magnitude possible. We are especially grateful for all of you who contributed to food donations to the Missoula Food Bank as we “extended the table” to the those in need.
As this special event begins to fade into memory, please continue to “extend the table” to all of those who are marginalized in our community. Let them know that they are indeed loved and are welcome at St. Francis Xavier Parish.
