St. Vincent de Paul Church in Kansas City, MO joyfully celebrated the 25th priestly ordination anniversary of Fr. Francis Gallagher with a Solemn Mass and banquet in the parish hall on Sunday, June 24.

 May the God of life pour out grace upon him,
may he feel God’s hand upon him
and be strengthened by the things God’s loving presence.

May the Son of God be Lord in all his ways;
may Christ shepherd him,
and in his heart may Jesus receive the praise.

We pray that God’s grace will abound
and that the fullness of Christ’s love
will continue to be shared through him.

May God the Holy Spirit comfort him, and make him strong,
and may in his heart the Spirit of love be a song.

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Amen.+
