Our Service programs and groups allow us to put love into action. If you have an idea and are not sure which group it would fall under, please send all questions to Social Concerns. Explore the links below for more information on each program.
Funeral Luncheon Ministry
The parish provides a luncheon for the family and for those attending the funeral. Parishioners who volunteer to help at funeral luncheons see first hand how grateful the families are and that the people who attend can feel the love and compassion extended to them by our parishioners.
Homebound Ministry serves those members of our church body who, due to physical limitations, are unable to attend church services regularly.
Homeless & Hungry
The Homeless and Hungry Committee at St. Francis of Assisi offers parishioners the opportunity to assist homeless and hungry people in the greater Des Moines area.
Knights of Columbus
The Knights is a group of men that brings fellowship along with their fundraising for many groups like the Mentally Challenged, Special Olympics, ARC Industries, Ruby Van Meter School and Bishop Drumm Alzheimer Unit.
