"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).

REACH OUT TO THOSE IN NEED
As most of you know, the IFP has been closed since March 16th in accordance with the “Safer at Home” order. They donated almost all of the food which they had on their shelves and in their pantry to the Good Samaritan’s Food Pantry in Pinellas Park, which remained operational.
Now IFP is restructuring its process with certain food items while clients will remain in their cars and the volunteers will deliver bags of food to them.
Because of the Coronavirus, the Annual Letter Carrier’s Food Drive in May was cancelled; that usually provided close to 7 tons of food for the pantry. With very few donations coming in right now, they need to purchase a large amount of food. A couple from our church has offered to match cash donations, up to $250 from now through May 31st 2020.
If you’d like to make a donation, please make your check payable to St Francis ECC, but include "FOOD PANTRY" on the memo line. Hopefully we can cut a check to them for at least $500 in early June.
The Covid-19 Crisis has hit so many families hard, both in terms of health and financial insecurity, as evidenced by food lines we see on the news day after day. Whatever you can do to help fight hunger here in our community will be greatly appreciated!
Thank You and God's Blessings!
Wednesday Study Group
The Wednesday Night Study Group is continuing to review the book called “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. They will be discussing chapter 3 next Wednesday, "The Second Agreement". The group meets every Wednesday from 6:45pm to 8:15pm via Zoom. Please contact Terry W. with any questions or for more information.
The RICA program is on hold until after the Covid-19 warnings are lifted and the group can meet again face to face. See Fr. Pat for more info.
Hope To See You Soon

MOST HOLY TRINITY SUNDAY (A)
“God sent his Son into the world to save the world.”.
This week we shall return to the liturgical season of Ordinary Time. This Sunday and next, however, are designated as solemnities; special days that call our attention to central mysteries of our faith. Today’s Gospel focuses on the mystery of the Holy Trinity, a reading that calls our attention to the action of God, who reveals himself in three persons: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God the Father, out of love for the world, sent his Son into the world, in order to save it. Through the death and resurrection of the Son, we have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit. As three persons, God acts always as a God of love; he does not condemn the world but acts to save it. The Gospel also calls attention to the response that is required of us. God’s love for us calls us to respond in faith by professing our belief in God’s son, Jesus, and the salvation that he has won for us. This profession of faith is a sign of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
