The Korean Community at St. Francis of Assisi will host its
15th Annual ‘Love Concert’
on Saturday, November 17th
at 7:00 PM in the church.
The concert will be presented in two parts. In part one, EnoB (Innovative Bridge) will present various classical music by renowned musicians.
The second part will include Korean traditional instruments and songs as well as the Korean community choir under the direction of Jin-Ok Lee.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the reception desk in the lobby of the Parish House.
St. Francis of Assisi is a church community of people from all over the world. Whether we come from other countries or other parts of the United States, many of us are in New York far from family and friends. Often we face the reality of grieving for lost loved ones from afar.
On Friday, November 2nd
at a special 7:00 PM Mass
we will remember our dead at a special Mass of Remembrance for all those who carry the burden of grief and loss.
If you have a family member or loved one who died since November 2, 2017 and you wish to have their names announced at this Mass please stop by the reception desk in the lobby of the Parish House and fill out the All Souls Day Remembrance form and return it by Monday, October 29.
We invite everyone who attends to bring a photo or memento of someone you have recently lost which will be placed in the sanctuary during the Mass.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Saturday, November 3, at 5 PM
in the Clare Room here at St. Francis.
A lawyer will be present to talk about issues involved when making a will and will answer any questions from those participating.
This is an important topic and many people neglect doing this.
All are invited and…it is FREE!

Of all the pains that life can hand us, arguably one of the most searing is the death of a child. As Jesus joined his distraught disciples on the road to Emmaus after his crucifixion, we ask him to join each of us in this ministry as we continue on our difficult journeys from grief to the healing peace that we, like Jesus’ disciples, can find in the Eucharistic community.
To meet the spiritual needs of Catholic parents whose children of any age have died by any cause—no matter how long ago—the Family Life Office offers the Emmaus Ministry for Grieving Parents. A unique, faith-based program providing spiritual retreats for grieving parents offered by grieving parents, the Emmaus Ministry provides a safe place where one can find peace, comfort, and hope, at least for a time. The entire retreat focuses on the parents’ personal spiritual journey, where one can engage as much or as little as one wants.
