The St. Francis of Assisi Pastoral Council honors Maria Houck

The St. Francis Pastoral Council honors Maria Houck for her generosity and devotion to others.

A native of Vietnam, Maria came to St. Francis in the 1990’s on the suggestion of Father Lynch and has been involved in the parish ever since. Quiet and unassuming, she has been sharing her cooking and baking talents with parishioners for years with frequent offerings for funeral receptions and 50+ luncheons.

She can be found at weekday masses and the Saturday evening mass.

Maria, thank you for your generosity to the parish and to all those in need. You are truly, in the words of Jim Severino, an "angel of giving."

We honor, Maria for her love, commitment and selfless giving to all of us at St Francis. We want you to know how much we appreciate all you give each and every day to make St. Francis a parish we are blessed to call home.

From all of us, thank you for providing the true spirit of God with a loving and giving heart.

God Bless and Thank You

-- St Francis of Assisi Pastoral Council

Praise & Recognition

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
