The Gala Committee is pleased to give you an opportunity to spend an afternoon with award-winning author Patti Newman as one of this years live auction items!

Patti masterfully blends the world of childrens literature with hard science. Have you ever wondered why sea otters are more than pretty faces? Want to know the secrets behind elephants and orangutans? Has someone actually discovered a way to make science fun? The answer is YES!

In this interactive event Patti will lead those in attendance (grown-ups, too) in a number of hands-on experiments designed to demonstrate the essential, yet delicate relationship between humankind and nature. Shell also answer compelling questions like what exactly authors do all day and why non-fiction should be an important part of every childs library. PERFECT parent/grandparent and child event!

The gathering will be an open-air garden party at the Land Park home of Katherine Keeney and Mike Falasco. Tea, fresh lemonade and homemade cookies will be served. An opportunity to purchase Pattis signed books will be afforded to all.

The Franciscan Saints

Each week, between August 11, the Feast of St. Clare, and October 4, the Feast of
St. Francis, we will try to highlight an individual who was inspired by the humility, simplicity of life, closeness to the poor, and spirit of prayer of St. Francis. These stories are found in The Franciscan Saints, by Robert Ellsberg.

St. John XXIII

St. John XXIII (1881-1963), born Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, was elected the 260th successor of St. Peter, serving as pope from October 1958 to June 1963. Best known for launching the Second Vatican Council, on Oct. 4, 1962, the eve of its opening, Pope John went to Assisi to pray to the Blessed Mother and St. Francis for the success of the Council, honoring the Franciscan roots that were planted at the age of 14 when he was received as a Third Order Franciscan. He died on June 3, 1963. From his deathbed he dictated this final message: “Now more than ever… our intention is to serve people and not only Catholics; to defend above all and everywhere the rights of the human person and not only those of the Catholic Church; it is not the Gospel that changes; it is we who begin to understand it better…” Pope John XXIII was canonized in April 2014.

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.

Loving God, grant that your healing grace may flow to all those who are suffering or ill, and that your strength and love may be with all those close to these brothers and sisters, for those who are providing care for them, and for all those who offer prayer on their behalf.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

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
