St. Francis

 

 

"There's always a place at the table for you."

 

Our multi-generational women's ministry, the Women's Connection, gathers in a relaxed and welcoming environment four times a year.  The Connection is mindful of the busy lives that women lead today and their need to still CONNECT with each other and their faith while keeping the time commitment light and the time together faith-filled, fun and charitable to others. 

   

Friends and guests are warmly welcome -- and yes, our time together is always sweetened up by faith, friends and chocolate!

 

Mission of The Connection 

 

Build community among the women of the parish (and friends) through spiritual, social and charitable gatherings.   

 

Encourage and inspire women to:  

 

-- connect with their Catholic faith through prayer and scripture projects

 

-- connect with their friends while building new friendships

 

-- connect with service and kindness in reflection of Christ's love

 

-- demonstrate the grace and unity we possess to make

a difference as women connected in God's light.
