Ministry Connections during COVID-19

Faith Formation

During this time of social distancing, the Formation Team is offering virtual resources and opportunities for every age and stage. From video lessons to online small groups, there is something for everyone to keep you growing in faith and connected to our community.

 Justice & Peace

 Pope Francis invites us to consider this Coronavirus pandemic an opportunity for reaching out to our neighbors in charity and pondering the kind of world we hope for in the future.

In that spirit, our Justice and Peace Team is working hard to help you find ways to serve others during this time and to gather with others in meaningful (yet virtual) ways to learn more about working for justice in a wounded world.


The Franciscan School continues to provide instruction to students to assure they are prepared for their academic futures.

Our St Francis Preschool  is engaging with their families through a variety of online tools. You can continue to see some of them on the preschool Facebook page as well as on our preschool website. 

Inspired by our patron Francis of Assisi, we seek to proclaim the reign of God by growing in Holiness through our experience of Christ in word, sacrament and one another, offering Hope to those who hunger for human dignity, and extending Hospitality to all.
