the catholic community of st. francis of assisi

Educated in Faith

At St. Francis of Assisi, the primary focus of formation is the education of families in the Catholic faith and the development of faithful followers of Jesus Christ.

Both schools just kicked off the new school year, and look forward to another great year of faith, academics, and service to the community.
