VATICAN RADIO — At the Oct. 18 conclusion of the Extraordinary Synod on the Family at the Vatican, Pope Francis addressed the assembly, thanking them for their efforts and encouraging them to continue to journey.
Below is Vatican Radio’s posted translation of the pope’s address.
"Dear Eminences, Beatitudes, Excellencies, Brothers and Sisters,
With a heart full of appreciation and gratitude I want to thank, along with you, the Lord who has accompanied and guided us in the past days, with the light of the Holy Spirit.
Parishioners at St. Joseph Church on French Street in Wilmington have reason to celebrate this Thanksgiving weekend: The historic church has exceeded its $181,000 goal for the Sustaining Hope for the Future campaign.
But leaders at St. Joseph added $90,000 to that goal in order for the parish to have sufficient funds to renovate kitchen and restroom facilities in the church hall. While they rejoice at meeting the first goal, they realize more work remains to be done to meet their hopes. As of last week, St. Joseph’s had raised more than $222,000 in gifts and pledges.
