With the guidance of the HOLY SPIRIT, our very first

STEWARD OF THE MONTH...

has been chosen!

 

 BRIAN CONROY, a current PPC member and long-time steward of St. Francis Parish, is the January Steward of the Month.  His name was selected as we prayed in front of the tabernacle.

The parishioner who nominated Brian wrote :

Brian Conroy has been a steward of St. Francis for such a long time and has made such a difference to our parish.  He has volunteered his time on so many committees, takes wonderful photos that show the beauty of St. Francis, he has a strong faith and love of Jesus Christ, and his positive attitude is inspiring to others.  He's welcoming, kind, helpful, spiritual, and his love of St. Francis Parish is evident whenever you speak to him.  I nominate Brian because he is simply an awesome steward and we are so blessed to have him.
 
Brian's response was what you'd expect from someone humble like Brian:
 
I just opened the email, what a shock!! 
By myself I can do nothing, with HIM (JESUS CHRIST ) who strengthens me I can do  anything!
Thank you all!!
YBIC  (Your Brother in Christ), Brian 
 
CONGRATULATIONS, BRIAN, AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR DEVOTED STEWARDSHIP OF ST. FRANCIS PARISH!
 
 
THANKS TO ALL WHO SENT IN NOMINATIONS.  IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO NOMINATE FOR THE COMING MONTHS!
 
See details below.  
 

We'd love to hear from you about St. Francis parishioners whose STEWARDSHIP of prayer and service to our parish has made a difference to our parish and to others.  We know at our incredible parish, the list is endless!

In front of the tabernacle, one name will be drawn from the Nominee File each month.  Please send your nominees' name (more than one name is fine) along with a short paragraph on why you are nominating that person to Debbie Hovanasian at dhovanasian@saintfrancis.net or drop it off in the parish office.  THANK YOU!!
