St. Francis of Assisi communications exists to serve as a welcoming tool as well as to provide information and resources related to prayer, service, and growing in faith for both parishioners and visitors.

Parish Email and Texts

The Parish is using flocknote for all major communications. We send out a weekly email blast highlighting upcoming Parish events and urgent information (such as a Parish Office closure). What we need from you as Parishioners is to sign up for it. Please go to this site: to register. You insert your information, verify that it’s you, and join groups you would like to receive information from. We will start off with the St. Francis of Assisi Parishioner group and build from there. You have the ability to manage what information you get, depending on the groups you join, and how you receive that information, via text, email or both. This is a great way to stay connected with what is going on at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church.
