Today we welcome Fr. Joe Pednekar of the Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales (MSFS). Ordained in 1962, Fr. Joe, originally from the Portuguese colony of Goa in the southern part of India, has been serving in the Cleveland Diocese since 1967 at various parishes throughout the area. He has been all over the United States and Canada doing missionary work for the poor children of India. The money he raises goes directly to the orphans, street children, special needs children, lepers, and for vocations for young men in the Catholic Church in his home area of India.
Please welcome Fr. Joe as he shares his story with us today. There will be a second collection. Please be generous.
