Matt and Choir
Fr. Dave’s homilies are now being recorded at Masses and posted to the parish website,
. So, if you or your children need something to help you fall asleep quickly at night, tune into them (just kidding). They are also available as a podcast (but don’t listen and drive...we want you to reach your destinations safely)! The podcasts are listed on iTunes, Google Play and Spotify, so you can download or listen to them on the go, or share them with loved ones who suffer from insomnia (again, just kidding). We hope you enjoy them and share them with loved ones and friends who you believe will benefit from them. The homilies and podcast links are available on the main page of the parish website or you may search for 'st francis de sales church' on the respective service providers.
The next novena we will pray is to a powerful patron. Saint John Paul II called this saint the Guardian of the Redeemer. The next novena we will pray together is
the Novena to Saint Joseph, Husband of Mary!
We will start praying on Sunday, March 10th. Click on the link below to sign up.
