Bible Study

A 4-Part Fall Course on Franciscan Life
with Bro. Mark Schroeder, OFM

Sponsored by the St. Francis of Assisi Pathways
for Justice Committee. Chapters 7-9.

St. Francis of Assisi and St. Clare of Assisi had an incarnational faith that has influenced our world for over 800 years. You can learn more about these saints and the movement they started. You are part of this movement! Come join in a study course that will deepen your own insights and commitment to following the Gospel of Christ—in the spirit of Francis and Clare.

This is a study course. Nothing strenuous, yet there is "homework" reading offered. Our guide, Build With Living Stones, comes from the Franciscan Institute. A supplementary source will be Building a Bridge by Jesuit author James Martin. All reading materials will be provided at each class.... The goal is to move from head (knowledge) to guts (emotional response) and landing in between (matters of the heart).

Bro. Mark, from our local friary, will be your guide. We will start promptly at 7PM and have a guaranteed ending by 8:30 pm. Brunsman Hall. All are welcome.

As the course title suggests, each of the four bi-weekly classes will build upon the previous. Yet we don't want anyone staying away if you cannot attend each class. Come once, twice, or to all ...

A donation would be appreciated, given to Bro. Mark's ministry, "Franciscans for Justice."

Women in Conversation

Women in Conversation


Women in Scripture are courageous, humble, prayerful, and sometimes hidden in the background. They take initiative and demonstrate clear devotion to God. How can women today learn from our sisters in the Bible? Join us for an inspiring conversation to look at ways in which we encounter holy feminine role models today.

St. Francis Step and Breakfast Ministry - Your Spirit and Welcoming Presence is needed

Step Ministry VolunteerThis very special ministry is in need of volunteers. Our Step Ministry provides a safe, peaceful and private place for our guests to sleep each night at the Parish Center courtyard. This ministry is rooted in scripture and responds to the call to welcome strangers, provide shelter to the wanderer, and not turn away from the needs of others.

As a Step Minister you would have the opportunity to serve as a welcoming presence for our Step guests as they arrive in the evening or, as a Breakfast Minister, help to provide a simple prepared breakfast before they leave to face the challenges of their day. The time commitment is 5:45 pm to 7:30 pm for the Step Ministry OR 5:30 am to 7:00 am for the Breakfast Ministry. Most Step Ministers commit to one evening a week, and Breakfast Ministers for two mornings a month. However, we are happy to try to create a schedule that works for you! Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a part of the Step/Breakfast Ministry family. We would love to have you join us.
