In 1990, a statement entitled “In Support of Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools“ was released by the Catholic Bishops of the United States. This statement affirmed a strong conviction that catholic schools ”are of great value to our church and nation” and “the entire ecclesial community...Is called to value ever more deeply the importance of this task and mission, and continue to give it full and enthusiastic support” (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, 2005).

Our parish school is in need of a volunteer school counselor to support the spiritual, intellectual, social, and psychological development of our TK - 8th grade students.

About the Volunteer Position: Seeking one (1) volunteer school counselor with an LMFT or LCSW professional designation. The time commitment would be any weekday(s) with no minimum or maximum time requirement.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.

Office Hours

9:00am-12:00pm Mon-Fri.
Closed on major holidays.

Who We Are

Honoring our Franciscan tradition, St. Francis Parish is a Catholic Christian Community building the reign of God in the spirit and path of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi. We value vibrant liturgy and personal prayer as a way to worship God and celebrate life.

We are an inclusive community respecting the dignity of all persons and supporting the journey of each person. We respond to the command of Jesus to love by welcoming all, evangelizing, supporting spiritual growth, and being Eucharist to each other.

Challenged by the Holy Spirit, we reach beyond ourselves to care for our neighbors, the poor, the marginalized, and those alienated by our Catholic Church. We aspire to be witnesses and prophets advocating for justice in the world and in the church.

All Are Welcome
