Good News

Spending time in prayer with the readings before Mass will significantly reinforce your comprehension of and provide an opportunity to reflect on the Word of the Lord as it is proclaimed. Whether you begin with a literal read, listening to a podcast, or watching a video reflection, you open your heart to a deeper dive with our Lord. Go to https://bible.usccb.org/  to find the Scriptures for not only Sunday, but for every day. Also, check out one of the weekly Sunday Gospel reflections​ below.

SFA Encounter

Stay connected with other Together in Faith households by completing an activity and sharing on the private Facebook group. Don’t have Facebook? Email to Heather at hrohe@saintfrancischurch.org and she can add it for you.

January-This month the SFA Encounter provides an opportunity for families to participate in both giving and receiving the beautiful gift of healing through prayer. Families are invited to post their prayer intentions in the Together in Faith Facebook group. We then ask that you pray for the intentions as you see them. If you don’t use Facebook, you can send your intentions to Heather Rohe at hrohe@saintfrancischurch.org and she will post them on your behalf. If you have a sensitive prayer intention and would like to submit it anonymously, use the designated space on the bulletin board on the north side of the Gathering Space in the church. Regardless of how you submit your request, the St. Francis of Assisi Faith Formation Office will pray for all of the intentions as a team at our weekly staff meeting. Prayer is powerful. Every prayer on behalf of a person and/or intention is a gift and builds healing.
