We Welcome You

Fr. Ken Laverone, OFM A Place to Call Home
Dear Friend,
Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi. Whatever brings you here today— if you are seeking a new church home or have been away from church for a long time— we are blessed to have you worship with us.

We hope you will explore our vibrant parish.
To give you but a few examples of the uniqueness of St. Francis, we have over 400 volunteers participating in 50 ministries. Our parishioners travel to St. Francis from 100+ zip codes, some traveling 60 miles or more to participate in our liturgies. It is clear they have found something that speaks to them. Our church is as joyful, meaningful, and responsive as the committed parishioners at its heart.

Please let me, the ushers, staff, or your pew mates know how we can help you learn more about St. Francis—and if the Spirit moves you, how to become a member.

Peace and Blessings,
Fr. Ken Laverone, OFM

ONE Campaign

One Campaign Bishop Jaime Soto has asked every parish in the Diocese of Sacramento to take part in the ONE Campaign to raise $50 million to address a number of diocesan-wide and local parish needs. He has also challenged all of us to offer 5 million service hours and devote 5 million faith formation hours to strengthen and revitalize the Church in our diocese. To learn more about the ONE Campaign, or to pledge service hours, faith formation hours, or a monetary donation: www.onerevival.org.

Campaign Update

As of June 4, 2014, we have received one-time donations or pledges of $442,008 (68%) of our $654,000 parish goal from 221 donors. This about 13.3% of our parishioners. If you have not yet contributed, I really encourage you to respond to this request for the Church of Sacramento. If another 200 persons pledged only $20 a year over the next four years, this would bring our participation to over 20% and help us to meet our goal. That would be a great accomplishment for our community. Please consider pledging $20 a year over the next four years to the ONE Campaign. Pledge envelopes are in the church literature reacks, or you can on online to www.onerevival.org.
