Radical Grace
Thank You

The parish would like to thank everyone who was able to participate in the recent Hospitality Brunch hosted by our LGBT Ministry.

Our attendees represented our diverse parish and, like always, there was an abundance of delicious food and conversation. A big thank you to Sister Clare Graham, SSS, who spoke on "Love" and clearly demonstrated in her talk how much she loves our St. Francis Parish.

We hope to hold additional Hospitality Brunches in the future to foster a greater understanding of the contributions made by each of us in this diverse parish. Our next brunch will focus on our Senior Parishioners.

Thank you again everyone for your continued support of St. Francis Parish.

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.

"Homeless not only from the room made of bricks, but homeless from being rejected, unwanted, completely torn out of society....that unwanted one is my brother and my sister....We belong to each other." — Mother Theresa
