Welcome to

Saint Francis of Assisi Parish

 

We at Saint Francis of Assisi Parish 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.   

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