Inside and outside of the Church


Thank you to Nancy McHenry Dirks for organizing and encouraging our 10:00 AM Mass Greeters!
Thank you to our Greeters: the Larson Family, Jones Family, Scott/White Eagle Family, Klukas/Sorenson Family, Curran Family, Stedicke Family, Garza Family, Tuininga Family and McHugh Family. All of these families helped out by greeting the community as they entered the church and by passing out bulletins as the community left after Mass. It was fun to have our Kindergarten and First Grade families here helping at Mass.
Thank you also to the Kindergarten classes for their dedication in cleaning up the pews and straightening the Music books on Monday mornings.

Thank you Coleen Auxier for her work with the school Choirs that have energized our Masses one weekend each month since January. It has been a joy to have the students participating in the Masses as Cantors, Choir members, Readers, Greeters, Gift Bearers and Ushers. We have a very talented group of young people at St. Francis of Assisi School.

Thank you to Teachers: Nancy Jayne, Brianna SteinCruz, Rita Hulsman, and Terry McDermott for preparing the students and allowing them to actively participate in our Masses.
Thank you Rosemary Leifer, our principal, for encouraging the participation of the school families in our parish community at St. Francis of Assisi.

We appreciate all of their contributions to the celebration of Mass and the joy and energy they bring to our community.

One of the six key characteristics of an engaged member of a parish is that members have received recognition or praise from someone in their parish, within the past six months. As our Parish moves forward, it will be essential that we create the climate where parishioners freely and frequently can recognize and praise the efforts of other parishioners and staff members. One step in creating this climate is the creation of this forum. Read More
