Dear St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy Family,

The prayers of the St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy family are with the FDNY and the family of Firefighter Timothy Klein (Class of 2004), who tragically lost his life battling a fire in Brooklyn yesterday. We give thanks for his service to the city of New York and ask God to comfort his family and his FDNY brothers and sisters. We also ask for God’s blessing on the eight other firefighters who were injured in the blaze, and that He bring them all complete healing.

Firefighter Klein’s funeral mass will take place this Friday April 29th at 11am here at St. Francis de Sales Parish. After speaking with the Superintendent’s office and Father Bill (Pastor of St. Francis) due to the funeral there will be no school this Friday 4/29 for all students.
