Welcome to St. Francis Ecumenical Catholic Church where ALL ARE WELCOME! Come join us in worship and celebrate our Catholic, Christian identity with the seven Sacraments. We are truly "INCLUSIVE" and hope that our website highlights the wide variety of worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.
We believe that the door to salvation is always open to everyone and so are the doors to our church.
To live by FAITH, be known by LOVE, and be a voice of HOPE in order to give ourselves in service and better the lives of others.
St. Francis offers "ALL Loving Couples" the traditional Catholic Sacrament and setting for your most sacred celebration. Noninclusive circumstances, that are so denied by other churches may prevent couples from celebrating a true catholic marriage ceremony; we here, warmly welcome "All" at Saint Francis, to include also the: divorced, same sex, (LGBTQ).

The Second Sunday Of Advent
John preaches repentance and baptizes in the Jordan region
First Reading: Baruch 5:1-9. Second Reading: Philippians 1:4-6,8-11. Gospel: Luke 3:1-6.
Each of our choices has consequences. Sometimes our choice to do one thing leads us to other choices that we didn't see at first. In today's Gospel (Luke 3:1-6), we hear about the appearance of John the Baptist preparing the way for Jesus. Let's listen carefully to this Gospel to see what choices this Gospel invites us to make.
What choice did John the Baptist make? (He chose to prepare the way of the Lord). What choice did John the Baptist want others to make? (To repent and be baptized; to change their lives; to prepare the way of the Lord). John's choice to prepare the way of the Lord started what might be described as a chain reaction, as others also chose to prepare the way of the Lord through their baptism and repentance.
My brothers and sisters, we too can be people who prepare the way of the Lord through our good choices and by our repentance when we may fail to make good choices. The season of Advent is a time when we need to focus on making good choices so that we also have made ourselves ready to receive Jesus when he comes.
Let us pray; that we will be people whose good choices also help prepare the way of the Lord and invite others to do the same.
