Letter from Bishop Thomas F. Lillis to Reverend Louis Franchinotti of the Holy Rosary Church. Lillis reports that he receives ongoing requests from the Italian community and congregation of Holy Rosary for more English-speaking services in the parish. Lillis believes Franchinotti needs a priest fluent in English to help him because "eventually there will be no other language here in Kansas City but the English, so we must provide for the future."
