Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible
Give me justice, O God, and plead my cause against a nation that is faithless. From the deceitful and cunning rescue me, for you, O God, are my strength.
1st Reading 2nd Reading Gospel
Ezekiel 37:12-14 Romans 8:8-11 John 11:3-7
God’s power to bring life out of death and hope out of despair, as demonstrated in the raising of Lazarus from the dead.
Faith: The importance of faith in Jesus Christ, as exemplified by Martha’s confession that Jesus is the Messiah and the Son of God.
Repentance: The call to repentance and conversion, as expressed in Paul’s letter to the Romans, and the need to live according to the Spirit and not the flesh.
Trust in God’s mercy: The promise of God’s mercy and forgiveness, as expressed in the Responsorial Psalm, and the need to trust in God’s loving kindness and plenteous redemption.
The Pascal Mystery: Through the raising of Lazarus from the dead, Jesus demonstrates his power over death and foreshadows his own resurrection. This event is a sign of hope for believers, as it points to the victory of life over death.
Grief and suffering: The gospel illustrate the reality of human suffering and the pain that comes with loss, as well as the compassion and empathy that Jesus shows towards those who are grieving.

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).
