Slide Show of "Paint Nite to benefit the Homeless"
Over 50 "painters" turned out for a fun night of creativity while also helping Deacon John's Blessed Mother Teresa Homeless Ministry. Thanks to all who made this such a huge success full of "awesome" creations!
Welcome, and thanks for visiting our website! You are warmly welcome to share your faith life with us at our beautiful church on the hill. As a Catholic community with a vibrant parish life, we are centered in the Holy Eucharist. Together, as stewards of our parish, we pray, serve, reach out to those in need, support each other, share warm friendships, hold the teachings of Jesus Christ within our hearts, and bring His light to others.
If you are new to the parish or you are a visitor, please introduce yourself to the pastoral staff or one of our ushers or greeters. In the spirit of our patron saint, St. Francis of Assisi, we'd be delighted to welcome you!

THANK YOU ALTAR SERVERS!
Our AWESOME altar servers are very important to us, so it's great to have a chance to say, thanks! Here they are ready to spend the day at Canobie Lake Park with their chaperones. Thanks to all!
Collecting the Harvest!
Pam Moloney, one of several members of our Garden Ministry, picks the second harvest of the season in the garden in front of the rectory. The first harvest yielded 61 pounds of vegetables to donate to the Merrimack Valley Food Bank.
