"Catholic Social Teaching in Action"


Would you like to know more about how to put the seven principles of Catholic Social Teaching into action in your life now? Join us Thursday evening, December 1st from 7-8:30 pm for a presentation and discussion on Life and Dignity of the Human Person, the main principle upon which all the other Catholic Social Teachings rely.

Our focus for the evening will be on how to apply the spirit of this principle into something you can do now. Come learn how we can uphold the dignity of each person through local efforts, outreach, volunteerism, and in daily discussion. Learn what avenues are available for you to put your faith into action outside of the church doors.

This is part two of our series and will be held both
in person in Brunsman Hall and on Zoom. Let us know which you prefer
when you register at: pathwaysforjustice@stfrancisparish.com

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.
Amen.



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.

In addition, the Ministry is sending prayer cards to anyone who requests them. The cards include the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe from the new oil painting in the south transept of our church, and the Prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe for Protection from Coronavirus, as provided by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The prayer card is available in English or Spanish. To receive it, please email your mailing address to the Ministry at sfcommunionvisitation@gmail.com.

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
