STEWARDSHIP OF TIME
DRIVE BEGINS THIS WEEKEND
This year’s parish theme is
Perfect Love Drives Out Fear
. This is incredibly appropriate as we continue to navigate unprecedented paths to create a “normal life” amidst a pandemic along with fear and division in our country. Our desire at St. Francis is to fortify and nurture the faith of every member of your family, so we can live as people of faith, hope and joy, despite the troubles in our world. Please check out this year’s Stewardship of Time brochure titled
What is Your Path to a Fearless Life?
Explore the offerings, many of which are available both in-person and online, and consider which step(s) you’ll take to begin your path to a fearless life! Learn more and register at
or by contacting the parish office.

KICKING OFF THIS WEEKEND!
Calling all MOMS...we could use a little timeout right now. The beginning of school, and the added pressures of the times are upon us. Let's get together with our friends and have some time to stop and reevaluate with God. Cindy Bauman will present on the topic of "Prayer of Presence" and we'll have quiet reflection and time to journal. We hope to see you there!!! Click below to register!
