November is a month of remembrance. Upcoming this week is a mass for All Souls on Wednesday evening at 7:00pm and on Saturday morning at 9:00am we have our annual mass outside for those who are interred in our columbarium. Also this Tuesday is All Saints, with an all-school mass at 9:00am in the church and a mass in the evening at 7:00pm.

All are welcome!

This past Friday was the last day of work here for Pat Kowite, who is retiring and has been a fixture on staff at St. Francis since the days when we were just the “church in the woods” back in the 1980’s.

Pat has been a great help to me and to the prior Franciscan pastors here, beginning with Fr. David in the 1980’s and continuing with Fr. Dan Kenna and Fr. Mark Reamer. We wish Pat the best as she moves into retirement.

This Sunday after the 11:30am Mass, our Franciscan School will have an Open House from 12:45 to 2:00pm in the school. Follow the signs to find your way.

Blessings on your week!
