Welcome to the website of St. Francis of Assisi Parish of
Dracut, one of the most scenic churches in New England!
You are warmly welcome to share your faith life with us at our beautiful church on the hill, surrounded by 15 acres of tranquil former farmland, a 300-foot boardwalk over protected lands, a prayer garden and lovely scenic views.
As a Catholic community with a vibrant parish life, we are centered in the Holy Eucharist.
In the spirit of our patron saint, Saint Francis of Assisi, together 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.
Come visit for Mass or an event, to pray in our church or prayer garden, stroll over our boardwalk or simply enjoy our beautiful grounds. You're sure to enjoy your time spent here with us!
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 our welcoming spirit, we'd be delighted to meet you!
