English as a Second Language (ESL)

Our mission in the ESL Ministry is committed to provide instruction in the English Language. This mission is a joint effort with New Hope Presbyterian Church. ESL students come from many different countries, diverse cultures and educational backgrounds. They also have many common needs.

ESL students need to learn English, help their children learn to read and write English and interact with Americans on a daily basis. Our ESL students may also have very practical concerns of applying for a driver’s license and passing a citizenship test.

The ESL Ministry’s goal is to break down barriers and build stronger, integrated communities. The ESL Ministry is a living example of unification in the Body of Christ.

Registration will take place on Sunday, September 8, 2013 from 2:30pm to 4:30pm and Thrusday, September 12, 2013 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm A $40 donation is requested to cover the cost of books and materials. Classes start on Thursday, September 19, 2013.

HISPANIC MINISTRY

The mission of the St Francis of Assisi Hispanic Ministry is to develop the Hispanic faith community in areas of religious education, liturgy y community outreach. The Ministries’ primary focus is the faith formation of Spanish speaking children and adults. The faith formation mission includes sacramental preparation for Baptism, First Communion, Reconciliation, confirmation, Marriage and Anointing of the Sick. The Ministry also offers assistance for traditional and cultural Hispanic observances such as the presentation and Quinceañera. A Spanish language mass is offered every Sunday at 1:30 p.m. and the Sacrament of Reconciliation at 1:00 p.m.

The Hispanic Ministry Outreach is broad in scope recognizing the needs concerning religious, social and temporal needs. The program organization and activities are designed to be responsive to these needs.

The Hispanic Ministry Outreach mission is realized by efforts of the St Francis of Assisi Staff, volunteers and the faith community-at-large. Adult volunteers are always needed in the areas of catechesis, liturgical ministers, choir, events and translators.

Please contact Fr Carlos Gallardo Morales, Associate Pastor at (720) 215-4554 or at cgallardo@stfranciscr.org for more information.
