"ALL ARE WELCOME"
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).

We continue to meet via zoom and in person. Please call the church office for zoom meeting information.

Fifth Sunday of Easter
“Jesus gives his disciples a new commandment: love one another”
1st Reading: Acts of the Apo 14:21-27 2nd Reading: Revelation 21:1-5a Gospel: John 13:31-33a,34-35
Is love the first word your family members, friends and neighbors use to describe their interactions? Love is difficult. Jesus' sacrifice for us is a perfect example of this. Yet because of love, the glory of God is fully revealed in Jesus. God's glory is revealed in us when we act as the Body of Christ, as individuals and as a community. In the love we have for one another whether difficult or challenging, it is in our sacrificial love—this is where we find Jesus.
In today’s Gospel (John 13:31-33a, 34-35) Jesus tells us to love one another. He also showed us how to love one another. In what ways did Jesus show us how to love? (in his acts of healing and forgiving; at the Last Supper as he washed his disciples' feet; in the gift of the Eucharist; and through his death on the Cross).
My brothers and sisters; as Christians We believe that the glory of God is seen when we follow Jesus' way of love. Consider whether your actions are consistent with Jesus' way of love. If not; what might you do differently?
