A note from our pastor…
Thank you to all who made Holy Week here at St. Francis so beautiful – those who decorated the church for each special liturgy, the musicians and all of the ministers who assisted in our many services.
My prayers are with you for a Joyous Easter Season!
This weekend we offer our prayers and congratulations to our First Communicants. God Bless you all!
