Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi

With the Holy Father and the Roman Catholic Church, we strive to build up the Body of Christ, recognizing that through the Sacraments, become empowered to continue Christ’s work.

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi

We aspire to imitate our patron, St. Francis of Assisi, in his love of Christ by reaching out to all people, especially the poor and vulnerable.
