Exterior of Saint Francis church

Welcome, Newcomers!

Welcome, and thank you for visiting St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church! Here at St. Francis, we are a welcoming community with many opportunities for involvement. We offer various possibilities to grow in faith and love, from education, faith and social ministries, local and international outreach, to celebrating the word of God.

Each newcomer receives a welcome letter and a St. Francis information packet upon registration (online registration coming soon!). We also host a newcomer welcome party twice a year! Fill out and submit the registration information below. Alternately, you can stop by the Parish Office and fill out a card in person or email Kim Mallisee, our Newcomer Coordinator, with your name and home address and she will send you a registration card. Upon completion, Kim will then mail you a packet of information regarding the many ways to become involved.

A newcomer class is offered in the fall for women, serving as a great way to meet other new women of the parish. It is an informal 10-week course that is based off the book After the Boxes Are Unpacked. Meeting time will be on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 9:30-11 a.m. If there is interest, Kim will offer the same class in the evenings in the spring. Let her know if you are interested.

For more information regarding new membership and new member activities, please contact Kim at (515) 223-4577, ext. 106.
