How does being women affect our life choices and our relationships with others? Our culture and our church often promote gender stereotypes and defined roles for women. As seekers of a mature faith, how do we react to and come to terms with these varying and complicated aspects of what it means to be a woman in today's world? How do we see ourselves and how does that affect how we see each other?
OPPORTUNITIES TO PARTICIPATE
The Parish Council is an elected body of 15 parishioners. Council members serve a term of three years. The Parish Council's mission is to help bring the concerns, the hopes, and the ideas of the parish to Fr. Des. Working together with Fr. Des and the Parish Staff, the Council helps to discern what God is calling us, as a parish, to do. A good example of this was the Pastoral Action Plan that gave us a blueprint to follow in the areas of Evangelization, Outreach, Liturgy/Spirituality, Facilities, Parish/School Relationship, and Finances.
If you are interested in running, pick up an application in the church literature racks, or download the PDF at www.stfrancisparish.com/PC/apply.pdf.
Drop off applications at the parish office, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org (include digital "headshot" style photo).
If you have questions, current members of the Council will be available after the Masses, or you can email questions to ParishCouncil@stfrancisparish.com.
Application deadline extended to May 28.
Office volunteers, one Sunday per month following the 7:30 am Mass. Please contact email@example.com.
The music ministry at St. Francis presents a unique opportunity to serve the parish community. We have over 50 parishioners who volunteer their time weekly to deliver Godís message through song and praise. As liturgical ministers we are striving to grow our relationship with Christ, responding in love to those with whom we share this ministry, and proclaiming the Good News to all.
Three times per year this planning committee comes together to put on a theme-based event that welcomes new parishioners to the parish. The Hospitality team is looking for a few good people to help plan and coordinate these events. Your participation can be as involved (or not!) as your time permits. For further information, please contact Richard at 916-443-8084 ext 114.
Vincentians gather together in groups called conferences which focus on spirituality, fellowship, and works of charity. Works of Charity may include homeless services and home visits to the poor.
To establish a conference we must first identify a leadership group consisting of volunteers serving as President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. We can then develop a plan of action to identify services that can be offered to assist our parishioners.
If you are interested in being considered for a leadership position, please contact Richard Hernandez at RichardH@stfrancisparish.com or call 916-443-8084 x114 to meet and review the program. Those interested in volunteering should possess a great desire to work with the poor and needy, make the required time commitment, and possess skill sets of working with groups and conducting training.
In advance, thank you very much and we look forward to implementing this very exciting program to serve our parish.
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.
