Our Mission

 

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.

Weddings

 

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).

REACH OUT TO THOSE IN NEED

The Interfaith Food Pantry will remain closed until further notice. Our goal at the Interfaith Food Pantry has always been “… to provide food for needy families …”, & we know that you share our belief in this objective.  God has answered our prayers! We have decided (with the approval of our Board President, Ron Stone) to partner with Good Samaritan to supply them with some of the foods they need which we are not using at this time. We are confident that there are sufficient funds in our treasury to re-stock our pantry when this crisis has passed.

We will continue to keep you updated.  Please pray that this COVID-19 virus will soon come to an end! Thanks.

Thank You and God's Blessings!

Fifth Sunday of Lent  (A)

     “Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead.”

(John 11:3-7,17,20-27,33b-45)  

 

Today’s Gospel reading recounts another sign, or miracle, found in John’s Gospel, the raising of Lazarus. As our catechumens move closer to the celebration of their Baptisms at the Triduum, today’s reading invites us to reflect upon what it means to call Jesus the Resurrection and the life.

What is it that happened in this Sunday’s Gospel that seems too good to be true? (Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.) How did people react to this miracle? (Many people began to believe in him.) In this Gospel we are invited to believe more deeply in Jesus. When Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, he showed his power over death. We believe that by Jesus’ death and Resurrection, he conquered death and won eternal life for us. Our faith tells us that those who are like Martha and Mary… people who believe that Jesus is the Resurrection and the life… will find eternal life. Brothers and sisters let us pray together that we will share Martha and Mary’s faith that Jesus is the Resurrection and the life.

God’s Blessings,

Deacon Michael Maurice, Worship and Religious Education Ministry                                                            Saint Francis Ecumenical Catholic Church (Year A, 3/29/2020)
