Sunday, November 19
In purchasing your Christmas gifts from these organizations and artists, you will receive the perfect gift: You will experience the joy of knowing that you contributed "a hand up" to someone in need, and you will receive the pleasure of hsaring both that joy and a gift with a loved one in your life.
Mark your calendar! We look forward to seeing you on November 19, 2017.
"For it is giving that we receive." — St. Francis of Assisi
As you may know, each year one of the Parish's primary fundraising activities, our Gala, has been held before the start of Lent. With Lent starting early this year, our Gala planning committee looked for an alternative date. We were fortunate to find - and have booked - Saturday, March 17, 2018 at the Hilton.
With this date change we are moving our event from a Louisiana-based theme to something a bit greener. We are excited to announce that our 10th Anniversary Gala will be held on St. Patrick's Day in 2018. This promises to be a fun filled evening that includes celebrating our parish community with dancing, dining, and a Raffle and Auction... and special entertainment!
Over the last nine years parish ministries and operations have been supported by your participation in this event. We are very grateful for that support, and look forward to you joining with us to celebrate our tenth anniversary Gala!
Watch this space and Facebook page over the coming weeks for more information about the evening's activities, how you can assist with auction items - and how to reserve your space at the event!
If you have any ideas that will enhance our St. Patrick's Gala, or if you would like to become involved with the planning, please contact me.
With Francis and Clare,
OPPORTUNITIES TO PARTICIPATE

Pick your day. Felipe and Joe have a broom or rake reserved just for you. Winter is coming and the leaves are piling up! Can you give our gardening volunteers a hand? Email Joe Prassa (JoeP@stfrancisparish.com) or call Felipe at 731-4949.
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.
