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!
If you'd like information on our many Parish Life Groups, click on logo above. We have something for everyone, so please be sure to check it out.
Our retreat was well attended and a great success! Thanks to all who attended over the three evenings, and special thanks to Fr. Sepe, Fr. Farrell and Fr. Ritt. Their talks were inspiring and helped to make our Lenten experience more powerful and prayerful.
FAIR-LESS MINISTRY FAIR ONGOING THROUGH EASTER!
Keeping it SIMPLE, we're taking our Ministry Fair directly to you! Please visit our GROUPS page on this website between now and Easter. By doing so, you have visited our Fair-less Ministry Fair!

So please be "fearless" and check out our Lenten Fair-less Ministry Fair today, SIMPLY by selecting GROUPS above!
THUMBS UP FOR THE HOLY LAND!
Coming in our Easter Bulletin....a four-page Photo Brochure of the recent trip to the Holy Land with Fr. Brian and Deacon John. As we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord, we hope this colorful pictorial of Jerusalem and beyond brings all of us a little closer to the place where it all happened.
Though several of the St. Francis pilgrims are not pictured above, these are the "early birds" who could not wait to get to church on Thursday to embark on their fabulous trip to the Holy Land with Fr. Brian and Deacon John!
Standing from left are Mrs. Mahoney (Fr. Brian's mom), Sharon Smart, Norm Plouffe, Jennie Paretti, Barbara Burgess, Joan Vinal, Fred Marion and Denise Marion. Seated, Elaine Plouffe (left) and Linda Trouville.
