ST. FRANCIS XAVIER HAS BECOME HAWK-ISH We have a pair of Hawks nesting in our church tower! So it is only fitting that we name them. Let's have a contest: name the parent Hawks, and their babies. The winner of the contest will receive free tickets to the Prospect Park Zoo, and of course will be revered by the Hawks for years to come. Submit your names — mother, father, son, daughter. Good luck, the Hawks are depending on you --- Fr. Bill
