Welcome

We at Saint Francis of Assisi Church are Catholics who center our lives in the Lord Jesus Christ, His Church and the Sacraments. The humble example of our Patron, Saint Francis of Assisi and his “call” from God to “Build My Church” reminds us how to live the Gospel “Way of life”. 

This Church Website invites you to explore the Spirit and Schedule of our Parish. There are the Sacraments that are the heart of our faith and Church Ministry that serves the community.   It is our hope that our Church Website will motivate and enable you to grow closer to God, as well as invite others to belong and participate in building the Kingdom of God in our midst. Please join us to Welcome, Worship and Witness together.

May God be with each of you, your family, and all the Parishioners of Saint Francis of Assisi Church.      

Sincerely in the Lord,        

Father Richard York, Pastor

PASTOR’S MESSAGE AND ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Dear Women of the Parish,

Our Parish Women’s Guild acts through its members to support, empower and educate all Parish Catholic Women in spirituality, leadership and service.

The Ministry of the Parish Women’s Guild responds with Gospel values to the needs of our Parish and the community.  This is accomplished by offering a Bereavement Breakfast after funerals; a presence at every Funeral Mass by the Aramathean Ministry; and sending Mass cards for the deceased.

Currently, our PWG consists of 117 Catholic women members of the Parish.  The Guild collaborates with Ministry Directors by supporting Religious Education; by donations to Parish Youth; and contacting our Homebound during the Pandemic to offer a friendly Voice and prayers.  Emphasis is given to the faith formation and education of Parish Women by an annual Retreat and creating a simple book which displays all of the beautiful Stained Glass windows in our church, to help the youth and all parishioners learn more about the rich history of our pictured Saints. 

The Parish Guild conducts a monthly Card party, weekly Bingo, a Christmas Tea, a Christmas Raffle, Rummage Sale, our annual Picnic, and our Volunteers Luncheon. Our Guild has also created and funded the Educational Grants for Parish Youth by distributing $8000 to our Parish high school graduates.  In addition, our Guild is developing an online “Donation Corner” on our Church Website where anyone can purchase an item for a donation. This will include new Parish Christmas Cards, all occasion door Wreaths, a Church Stain Glass Book, and displays of our Rosary Makers beautiful handiwork.

Planning for next year, in consultation with the Parish Finance Council and the Parish Pastoral Council, I am ANNOUNCING and implementing a special appeal every year in March to increase funding for our Educational Grants for Parish Youth coordinated by our Parish Women’s Guild.

Over the years, you have been very generous toward our annual CFA and Seminary and “Poor Box” to our Parish Outreach Ministry.  Beginning in March of 2021, please support our new Appeal for Educational Grants for Parish Youth.

 

Sincerely in the Lord,

Father Richard York, your Pastor
