“Inspired by our faith in Jesus Christ, and rooted in the charism of St. Francis of Assisi, we actively welcome all people.”
This is the first declaration in our parish mission statement. It is how our community at St. Francis thinks and acts.
We are again celebrating this radical welcome to all at our United in Love Celebration. This is a Weekend of Prayer for and with our LGBT Brothers and Sisters.
The high-point of the weekend will be a festive Mass at 5:15 on Saturday, June 24, 2017.
This is an opportunity for our whole parish community to remember that the Lord invited all people to follow him, regardless of race, ethnicity, economic background, gender or sexual orientation.
It is also an opportunity for all of us to invite to Mass any of our friends who many not feel welcome at the table of the Lord for whatever reason, but especially if they are gay or lesbian. Take the opportunity to bear witness to the unconditional love of God by reaching out and inviting back a brother or sister who hasn’t been home in a while.
This weekend is Sundae Sunday! We invite you to stop by the Clare Room in St. Francis House next door to the church after the 4:00 and 5:15 Masses on Saturday and the 11:00, 12:30, 5:00 and 6:15 Masses on Sunday to enjoy a delicious cold treat before heading out!
We are very grateful to those who sponsored this months’ Sundae Sunday.
The relic will be available for veneration in the lower church on the Feast of St. Anthony on Tuesday, June 13th, from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
Masses and Devotions to St. Anthony on Tuesday, June 13, will be celebrated at:
2:30 PM (Spanish),
6:30 PM (Haitian Creole, Upper Church)
and 6:30 PM (Filipino, Lower Church).
Blessed St. Anthony’s Bread will be distributed all day long in the 32nd Street entrance and in front of the church on 31st Street from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, or as long as supplies last.
We hope to see you there!
The book of Revelation has inspired fear, millennial predictions, and horror throughout Christian history.
And yet, the book is seen by all Christians as part of the word of God and therefore part and parcel of the good news of Jesus Christ.
In this 8 week course we will study the book of revelation to understand the message of the prophet John in his own time and the enduring message of the book for Christians today.
