We are in great need of new Sacristans here at St. Francis of Assisi. Some of the Sacristan duties include assisting the Priest by preparing the Church before Mass and then cleaning the sacred vessels after Mass. Training will be provided. If you are interested in helping in this most important role, please contact the Parish Office or let one of our Priests or Sacristans know you would like to volunteer.
Our next Senior Luncheon is scheduled for Tuesday, December 12th at Noon in the John Paul II Center. All seniors are welcome. Come and join other parishioners for a lovely luncheon and companionship!
