What I Love about

St. Francis Parish

"When I think of St. Francis Parish, one word comes to mind.  FAMILY. It feels that is the key to why the parish is so vibrant."

(Deacon John Hunt)

"St. Francis feels like home to me.  It feeds my spiritual needs as well as my worldly needs. This church has strengthened my faith and led me to friendships for life."

(Joyce K)

"After my husband died, this parish saved my life."

(Barbara B.)

"Here I have a feeling of peace and tranquility like nowhere else.  I am also blessed with many friendships at St. Francis which have been nourished over the years. St. Francis is a vibrant community that excels in helping anyone in need of anything."

(Fran D.)

"I only joined you guys a little over a month ago, but it was honestly one of the best decisions I've made in my whole life. I feel truly blessed to have met all of you and be a part of St. Francis. From the Good Friday Fast to baking cupcakes, I am glad to have taken part in it all. And most importantly I'm thankful that God has given such amazing people for me to call my friends which was something I desperately needed. Thank you!"

(Kevin of LifeTeen Youth Ministry)

"What makes this church so special are the people who come to pray, receive the sacraments and to socialize. The people whom I meet are not only my brothers and sisters in Christ, but they have become my closest friends."

(Brian C.)

"We don't know where we would be today without the support of our rich faith-filled community. Our St. Francis Parish means love, faith and friendship, the perfect parish."

(Linda C.)

"From the beginning of my association with St. Francis Parish, I have felt welcomed. I have sought to use my talents for the good of the parish, and have always been welcomed and encouraged to do so."

(Sharon S.)

"You'll surely develop meaningful, deep relationships with others in the St. Francis Parish community as my family has done."

(Fred M.)

"St. Francis has been the most welcoming, friendly and caring parish. Not only caring for their parishioners but for the surrounding community at large."

(Darlene and John)

"I have found an abundance of the Lord's goodness here at St. Francis Parish.  I am forever grateful."

(Madeleine)

 "God has been good to our parish.  I can't imagine how life would have been without belonging to this warm, inviting and loving community."

(Sharon C.)

"I am overwhelmed daily by the compassion and charity of the parishioners here. If there is a need they fill it.  This is a community that follows God's word and truly lives the Gospel."

(Sharon C.)

"My best friends have come from this parish, along with a lifetime full of memories.  I don't know where I would have ended up in life if it wasn't for St. Francis."

(Jessica K.)

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Parish of East Dracut

 

"The Church on the Hill"

 

Our Catholic community welcomes all to join us in celebration of the Eucharist, become part of our vibrant parish life, experience the fellowship of our welcoming parish family, and strengthen your faith. 

 

We have an active faith formation program for all age groups, continual outreach to those in need, and a strong community of stewards who return God's gifts to us through prayer and service to those within the parish family and beyond.

 

  

Though we often receive positive comments about the beauty of our "church on the hill" (dedicated in 1996) and its surrounding 15 acres of former farmland, we are especially devoted toward being a "light on the hill" -- living the Gospel and bringing Christ's light to others.

 

  

New parishioners and visitors are always welcome.  Click on "Are You New?" (left column) for more information.
