Come Join Us!
"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).
Sunday Morning Mass 10:30 am
We continue to meet via zoom. Call the church office for zoom meeting information.

FIFTH SUNDAY OF EASTER B
Fifth Sunday of Easter Gospel Reflection (B);
“Jesus’ Metaphor of The Vine and The Branches”. (John: 15:1-8)
In today’s Gospel, John (15:1-8), Jesus tells us, "Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing... If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want, and it will be done for you." Therefore, let us, cultivate a culture of encouragement. Let us inspire one another to rise above our present discouragement, obstacles, our struggles, difficulties and lack of faith. Let us help and love one another to keep our faith in difficult times. Let us keep our eyes focused on Jesus (the vine), for it is He who leads us to peace and joy. Likewise, (we), as the branches are connected to the vine to bear fruit. Let us remain in Jesus and let Jesus and his words remain in us so that we his disciples might bear much fruit, together with him.
God’s Blessings +
