BOOK OF THE DEAD During the month of November we remember in a special way our loved ones who have gone before us and the deceased of our parish family. Please stop in the gathering space of our Church and see the St. Francis Book of the Dead. The book lists all those who have died since All Saints Day, 2018.

OUR NEW WINDOWS The new windows and frames have been installed on the 5th Street and 24th Ave East sides of the church. These new windows will protect our stained glass (especially the beautiful Rose Window above the pipe organ) and will help with heating costs during the winter. The cost of this year’s project was $97,575.00 and was paid for by a gift from the Mary Gray estate and by private donors. Thanks to all who assisted with this important work!
