The Missionary Cooperative Appeal

is a program of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith which seeks to foster an ever-deeper spirit of universal mission, to inform Catholics of the life and the needs of the Catholic Church in the Missions, and to encourage prayer and financial help for those mission churches. This annual appeal is one that helps unite the Diocese of Sacramento with the Universal Church and to emanate mission awareness among the people of the Diocese of Sacramento.

On August 06/07, our parish will be visited by a Sister of Our Lady of Usambara, a growing congregation of over 600 African Nuns whose work is caring for the poor and most deprived people in the northeastern region of Tanzania. The area of ministries includes but not limited to teaching religious education to young people, providing services to the poor and the sick, and providing education in schools and colleges.

A second collection will be taken up on Aug 6 and 7 to support the missionary work of the Sisters of Our Lady of Usambara. Our generosity will make a difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters, our neighbors in another part of the world.

Would you like to open the Word of God by reflecting on the Sunday Gospel readings with other women in the parish?

Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.

Loving God, grant that your healing grace may flow to all those who are suffering or ill, and that your strength and love may be with all those close to these brothers and sisters, for those who are providing care for them, and for all those who offer prayer on their behalf.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Who We Are

Honoring our Franciscan tradition, St. Francis Parish is a Catholic Christian Community building the reign of God in the spirit and path of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi. We value vibrant liturgy and personal prayer as a way to worship God and celebrate life.

We are an inclusive community respecting the dignity of all persons and supporting the journey of each person. We respond to the command of Jesus to love by welcoming all, evangelizing, supporting spiritual growth, and being Eucharist to each other.

Challenged by the Holy Spirit, we reach beyond ourselves to care for our neighbors, the poor, the marginalized, and those alienated by our Catholic Church. We aspire to be witnesses and prophets advocating for justice in the world and in the church.

All Are Welcome
