This weekend at St. Francis - Jan. 12th-13th
This weekend at St. Francis of Assisi
The Baptism of the Lord
It is the last feast of the Christmas season, marking "the beginning of Ordinary Time [which formally starts the Monday after]. It is a feast of transition from Jesus’ hidden life to that of His public ministry. It also echoes the theme of the Epiphany in that the Baptism of the Lord is another manifestation announcing Jesus’ divinity to all of His first followers and to the disciples of John the Baptist." (

Upcoming and Noteworthy
3 new offices, including our reception desk, have been moved upstairs. You will now be able to greet Marilyn as you enter our Narthex. Make sure to say hi!
New Classrooms: construction started
St. Clare Hall (downstairs) will be re-purposed into classrooms to fit the demand of our various growing ministries. Construction has now started, which means ongoing events like the Knight's breakfasts, and Sunday morning coffee and donuts, will be cancelled for now. Thank you for your patience and support.
St. Francis of Assisi Prayer Line
The St. Francis Prayer Line is a group of parishioners who, on request, will pray for any of our brothers or sisters in need, whether it is be illness, grieving due to the loss of loved ones, unemployment, addiction, etc. Prayer requests will be emailed to all Prayer Line members, who have committed to keeping all prayer requests confidential.
You can submit a prayer request prayer for yourself, or for someone else (but please discern whether that person actually wants their request on the Prayer Line).

New Year Indulgences
There is still time to complete all the conditions
2 weeks ago, on December 31st and January 1st, the church offered us the opportunity to receive two plenary indulgences:
"A plenary indulgence is granted to the Christian faithful who, in a church or in an oratory, are present in a recitation or solemn chant of: ...
the hymn Veni Creator ... on the first day of the year, imploring divine assistance for the whole of the coming year...
the Te Deum hymn, on the last day of the year, in thanksgiving to God for the favors received in the course of the entire year."
(from The Enchiridion Of Indulgences)
Over the new year masses -for the feast of Mary, Holy Mother of God- the Lectors guided us in reading these prayers, and the Cantors led us in singing the corresponding hymns. If you haven't met the other conditions for the Indulgence, you still have time. Please see below:
The usual conditions for a Plenary Indulgence are as follows:
1. Sacramental Confession (within 21 days),
2. Communion (usually on the said day, but within 21 days),
3. Prayer for the intention of the Holy Father, all to be performed within days of each other if not at the same time, and
4. Detachment from all sin, including venial sin.
