faith & Prayer life
"To this end, we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and powerfully bring to fulfillment every good purpose and every effort of faith, that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, in accord with the grace of our God and Lord Jesus Christ."
– 2 Thessolanians 1:11-12
Prayer is essential to every Christian's life and to their pursuit of both our meaning and Trinitarian relationship with Our God. St. Francis of Assisi Parish provides many opportunities to enter into prayer both in the community and in private devotion. The Mass is the "source and summit" of our prayer and as so each Mass includes prayer intentions and a special intention for the Mass itself. If you would like to add intentions for your family members and friends, please add them to the Prayer Petitions Book located in the Narthex of the church.

St. Francis Men’s Ministry
The St. Francis of Assisi Parish Men’s Ministry normally runs from September through May, with occasionally a short summer program as well. Our sessions start at 5:45 am with coffee and casual conversation, followed by a video presentation at 6:00 am. Table groups discuss the lessons from the presentations, and the sessions end in time for men to head off to work. Not able to make the weekly commitment? No worries, the format of the program makes it easy to jump in from week to week as your schedule permits so you don’t feel left behind.
Join us for a NEW program COMING SOON!
