Guided by the words of our patron saint St. Francis of Assisi, we are a welcoming community formed around the Eucharist and open to the workings of the Holy Spirit. We are called to be a people of prayer, serving our faith through the principle of Christian stewardship.
We Need Only AskMatthew 7:7-8Jesus reminds us how much God loves us and how much God wants to give us whatever we ask. But whey do we need to ask if God already knows what we want? Because the very act of asking shows our trust in God’s goodness and our awareness that what we ask may not actually be the best for us. God knows what we really need and will give it to us, even when we don’t know exactly what that might be. God is willing to give us what we need most because each one of us is God’s beloved, more precious than we can ever begin to image.Prayer: Loving God, thank you for your deep love for each of us.Reflection: When you ask Go for what you need and you don’t receive it, how does that make you feel? ...

In fact, God has more patience with us and with our mistakes and sins than we tend to have with ourselves.Prayer: Give us clean and renewed hearts, o God.Reflection: Where do each of us need to be as patient with ourselves as God is? ...
