A Parish Tradition has returned!

Every Friday during Lent.

Since all Fridays during Lent are days of Abstinence (no meat), dinner is a simple meatless meal of soup, bread, and hot tea. We are grateful to our ministries and parishioners who will provide these simple meals. Some of the ministries involved in these Lenten meals are the Secular Franciscan Fraternity, Pathways, Women in Conversation, etc.

If you would like to participate, either as a member of a specific parish ministry, or if you have a general interest in being involved, contact Melba Hinojosa, stepping2016stones@gmail.com or send her a text at 916-997-3319.

Dinners will be served from 5:30-6:45 in Brunsman Hall - meet family, friends, classmates, ministry friends - and observe this Lenten tradition of Friday abstinence and also Almsgiving, as all donations are given to the poor. Each supper will be followed by the Stations of the Cross, led by Father Rey, at 7:00 p.m. in the church.

Join Fr. Rey on Fridays at 7:00pm in the church,
following the Lenten Soup Dinner. Each Friday of Lent.

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.



On the first Saturday of each month, 9-10am, we pray the Franciscan Crown Rosary, followed by conversation and fellowship. Please sign up by emailing Louis at louisvasquez123@hotmail.com. A Zoom invitation will be emailed to you.

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
