We Welcome You

Fr. Ken Laverone, OFM A Place to Call Home
Dear Friend,
Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi. Whatever brings you here today— if you are seeking a new church home or have been away from church for a long time— we are blessed to have you worship with us.

We hope you will explore our vibrant parish.
To give you but a few examples of the uniqueness of St. Francis, we have over 400 volunteers participating in 50 ministries. Our parishioners travel to St. Francis from 100+ zip codes, some traveling 60 miles or more to participate in our liturgies. It is clear they have found something that speaks to them. Our church is as joyful, meaningful, and responsive as the committed parishioners at its heart.

Please let me, the ushers, staff, or your pew mates know how we can help you learn more about St. Francis—and if the Spirit moves you, how to become a member.

Peace and Blessings,
Fr. Ken Laverone, OFM

ONE Campaign

One Campaign Bishop Jaime Soto has asked every parish in the Diocese of Sacramento to take part in the ONE Campaign to raise $50 million to address a number of diocesan-wide and local parish needs. He has also challenged all of us to offer 5 million service hours and devote 5 million faith formation hours to strengthen and revitalize the Church in our diocese. To learn more about the ONE Campaign, or to pledge service hours, faith formation hours, or a monetary donation:

Campaign Update

Thank you to everyone for your generosity and participation in our ONE Campaign commitment weekend. To date over $22.6 million has been raised at the diocesan level, and here at St. Francis Parish we have pledged $226,087 with $125,386 being pledged over the past weekend alone! That is 35% of our total parish goal. Also here at St. Francis, we have pledged 2,410 hours to service and 2,850 hours to faith formation; our school children have pledged 85,000 hours towards service and 225,000 hours towards faith formation and prayer over the next four years. We are off to a great start. If you have not already turned in your pledge envelope, you can place it in the regular collection basket today.
