Welcome to our Parish Website

We hope you like our Parish and School.

St. Francis is a parish of about 1300 families. I hope that you will find what you are looking for. As you can see we have both a parish and a school website which are easily accessible.
As a parish we are here to serve you in whatever way we can. While our staff is limited in numbers as well as working hours, we do our best to respond to your needs and inquiries. You can take a look at the website to see what programs are available and what staff we have. We have a Pastoral Council which helps us discern the goals and priorities for the parish. We have a Finance Council to help us plan our budget and financial needs. We have a School Commission, a Liturgy Commission, and a Faith Formation Commission to help with planning in those areas of ministry.  >Read more

Advent
Advent is a time of preparation. We prepare first of all, for the celebration of Christ’s birth at Christmas; second, to the coming of Christ in our lives through grace and the Sacrament of Holy Communion; and finally to His second coming at the end of time. Our preparations, therefore, should have all three comings in mind.

In Baptism we are each given the Light of Christ symbolized in a lit candle. We are sent forth, challenged to be Light for the world. How is your flame of faith doing? Have you built it up and spread that Light?

The split wood around the greenery in front of the altar symbolizes the preparation we are doing to spread the light of Christ beyond ourselves this Advent season.

We can build a bonfire in our community so that the Light of Christ is visible, warm and inviting to others around us. Consider inviting others to experience the warmth and glow of Christ's Light and Love by inviting them to come with you to Mass, taking a tag from the Giving Tree, donating to our brothers and sisters in need through St. Vincent de Paul, making sandwiches, or taking advantage of other service opportunities within our community. When we spread Christ's Light and Love to each other, we throw another log on the fire and prepare for the coming of our Lord.
