Slide Show:  Serving at the Shelter

Our Blessed Mother Teresa Homeless Ministry volunteers recently prepared a meal of chicken parmesan and served 125 people at the local shelter.  They also handed out soup, sandwiches, snacks and water to the homeless outside.


And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”   Matthew 25:40


 The Church on the Hill

Welcome to the website of 

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Parish

of East Dracut, one of the

most scenic churches 

in New England.


 As a welcoming Catholic community with a vibrant parish life, we are centered in the Holy Eucharist; we embrace the teachings of the Gospel, and we use our gifts of prayer, faith, love and service to share Christ's light with others. 



We are often referred to as a hidden gem with a beautiful church and a warm and welcoming,

faith-filled parish family. 


We'd be delighted to have you visit for Mass; attend one of our events or retreats; pray in our church or at Our Blessed Mother Prayer Garden; sit quietly with the Lord during Adoration (Mondays); join a prayer or social group; celebrate your wedding or your child's baptism; stroll over our boardwalk or simply enjoy our beautiful grounds.


Our church is tucked away on a quiet 15 acres just off Route 113 near Lily Mack Farm and Ogonowski Farm. Follow the signs to St. Francis Church and look for the church on the hill. 


Welcome and Overview

You are warmly welcome to share your faith life with us at our beautiful church, dedicated on May 5, 1996.  The church is surrounded by 15 acres of tranquil former farmland, a 300-foot boardwalk over protected wetlands (at right), a peaceful prayer garden (below), fields and lovely scenic views. 






 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, have fun together and hold the teachings of the Gospel within our hearts.



 St. Francis is a cherished spiritual home to hundreds who draw peace and comfort from the Word of God, the Eucharist and from the kindness and compassion of a faith-filled, Christ-centered community.




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!  


We also invite you to register with us by visiting the parish office or click on "Are You New?" (tab above left) to download our registration form. 


As a registered parishioner, you will enjoy many benefits of being an official parish family member.  We look forward to meeting you!




Matthew 25:35-40

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,  I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’  Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?  And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’  And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”
