Will You Be My Neighbor?- Youth Missions Summer Series

Each day will also hold valuable learning and community-building experiences such as a Poverty Simulation or daily "debriefs" and reflections. We'll gather each morning, at St. Francis, at 9am. Our "ending" time will vary based on our afternoon activity!

Fishing For Faith

Our Summer Formation offering is family friendly!  We'll be offering Fishing For Faith on the first Wednesday of the month in July, August, and September.  Have you ever had questions about the church or your faith?  Wonder why the priests wear fancy robes on Sunday?  Are you unsure of where Dinosaurs come into the mix?  How old is St. Francis Church?  Who were cool women in The Bible?  This is your chance to ask those questions!


Join us for fun and fishbowls, on the first Wednesday of July, August, and September from 5:30pm-6:15pm.
