GATHER elements are a way for us to join together as the community of St. Francis to celebrate and learn about our Catholic faith. They include Together in Faith for Households, for Adults, and Worship events, Sunday Gospel reflections and the SFA Encounter.

Together in Faith for Households
Together in Faith for Households is for everyone! Whether single, married, kids or no kids. It is a time for everyone in the home! It takes place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 6:30-7:30p.m.* The next edition is April 14.
Unbury your Alleluia!! Bring your Alleluia along as you participate in the Liturgy of the Light Celebration. Join us in the church on Wednesday, April 14. This gathering parallels portions of the Easter Vigil. It begins in darkness and turns our attention to the Easter Candle and the symbols that are placed upon it as we look toward Christ’s victory over death and how he lives in us. This is a beautiful way for the entire family to prepare all of your hearts and minds to celebrate the Easter season. Due to the format of the evening, we will not be live-streaming or recording this event.

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.
