On behalf of the Parishioners of Saint Francis of Assisi Parish, I extend heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Deacon Bill Cassidy for his 27 plus years of service and to Fran his wife for all of her support!
Let me share with you some of his story. Born in 1940, Deacon Bill served in the US Navy for four years. He then became the President and CEO of Direct Systems Corporation, CEO and Founder of CMH Industrial Sales, a National Sales Manager for Speedway Conveyor Corporation, and a Sales Engineer with the CEC division of Bell & Howell.
More importantly, Deacon Bill’s greatest gifts and accomplishments were his devotion to and love for Frances, his wife, and three children, Paul, Christopher, and Alicia.
Ordained in June of 2005, Deacon Bill served at Saint Francis of Assisi Church with various duties, including coordinating Homebound and Nursing Care visits and Outreach Ministry.
Deacon Bill has been and always will be a cherished member of Saint Francis of Assisi Parish. Deacon Bill will be retiring to Westfield, New York to be closer to some of his family.
Please join us in expressing our gratitude during the Parish Pancake Breakfast on January 14 after the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Masses. You can take this opportunity and wish Deacon Bill best wishes on his retirement.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Richard York, Your Pastor
