This coming week, we welcome Fr. Jim Sabak to our Franciscan community. Jim was most recently teaching at Providence College in Rhode Island and joins us here at St. Francis through next June. Steve K. and I both know Jim and we’re happy to have him with us and we offer him a warm welcome.

Next weekend, we will be having our annual Franciscan Challenge, in support of the ministries of the friars of Holy Name Province.  It has been moved up this year from December to October. Two friars will be here for the Challenge – David Convertino from our Development office in New York, and Fred Dilger from St. Francis Inn in Philadelphia, and we welcome both of them.

Many thanks to all who have responded to our Offertory Appeal. We need you, the people of St. Francis, to consider your part in supporting the ongoing ministries of our parish. If you have questions about the appeal, please contact our Director of Stewardship, Deb Mizerk at deb.royals-mizerk@stfrancisraleigh.org.

And blessings on your week!
