Parish History

Eight hundred years after Francis heard God’s call to rebuild his church, a people called upon their bishop to build a new parish. And that’s exactly what happened. The parish history covers the first thirty years of the Catholic Community of St. Francis of Assisi parish, a period from 1982 to 2012.
