THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY AND COOPERATION
THE 2018-19 CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL will be held next weekend in our parish. The Appeal is an opportunity for us, as a faith family, to join together to do the work of the Lord. All families are encouraged to support the CSA. By donating you are answering the Lord’s call to discipleship to put the work of the Lord before your own needs. Every dollar contributed to the Appeal assists our parish in offsetting our yearly diocesan assessment responsibility to our Diocesan Church. This year, our goal is $51,480.
ST. FRANCIS CHOIR leads us in song at our Sunday Mass at 10:30. New members are always welcome! Rehearsals are held each Sunday at 10:00 AM prior to Mass. The choir will begin on Sunday, September 23rd. Please consider joining!
