A Place to Call Home

Dear Friend,

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Parish.

Whatever brings you here today— if you are seeking a new church home or have been away from church for a long time, or if you are a long time parishioner — we are blessed to have you worship with us. We hope you will explore our vibrant parish.

I have always had a great admiration for IL Poverello (St. Francis), and welcomed my assignment to the parish as the first Pastor in over 120 years who was not a member of the Franciscan Order. It is my hope that we, as a parish community, can continue to explore the charism of the Franciscans, whose time at the parish helped make us unique in the Diocese of Sacramento.

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, your Parish 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.

Pax et Bonum,

Rev. Desmond T. O’Reilly
