Inside and outside of the Church

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Parish

St Francis outside of church.Join us to Celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi on the weekend of October 3rd and 4th.
We will have a Blessing of Animals as a Drive-by Blessing at Noon on October 4th. Bring your pet to the church in your car. You can bring your pet or your child can bring their favorite stuffie (stuffed animal) for a Blessing. We will create a line of cars in the parking lot. Fr. Dick will sprinkle holy water and pray the Blessing at the bottom of the church stairs. You will remain in your car, wear a mask, and roll down the windows. We will be giving out pet tags to the first 100 people.
 

The parish just finished our brand new app used for quick access to Parish info, calendar, readings, and where to donate.  I filmed this video with Father to show you how easy it is to download the app.  Father did it in under 1 minute, and so can you!
Steps to download the new parish app:
1. Go to app store on your phone (Google Play or App Store)
2. Search for seahurst
3. Click to download on "st. francis parish seahurst" link
4. Click 'Get' or whatever your app store button says
It's as easy as that!

We broadcast our video Masses at 5PM Saturdays on Facebook and YouTube.

We Live stream our Saturday Vigil Mass at 5:00 PM each Saturday.
Because of the strict limitation on the size of the gathering, 100 people, and because so many of our parishioners fall into the vulnerable category or live with someone who does, we will continue to livestream Mass at 5:00 PM Saturday. We strongly encourage those who are 65 and older, or who may have underlying health conditions, to remain home until it is safe for them to come back to public Mass.
Link to our Parish Facebook page     Link to our Parish YouTube page.

We will have a live-streamed Mass at 1:00 PM on Saturday, October 3rd, without a community present. This Mass will have Music since we will not need to be concerned with the safety of the community. These Masses will take place on the first and third Saturdays of every month beginning on October 3rd, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. We will continue to have our regular Saturday Mass at 5:00 PM and Sunday Masses at 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM. Remember to make a reservation!

Resources for You:
Prayer for Spiritual Communion:
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most holy Eucharist. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you.  Amen.
