Sanctuary Guild helps to keep our worship space beautiful by cleaning the sanctuary and holy water fonts every Thursday after 8:30 a.m. Mass.
On the first Sunday of each month the Servants of St. Francis Hospitality Committee hosts a fellowship event for all parishioners following the 7:30 a.m., 9 a.m., and 10:30 a.m. Masses. These events are held outside, weather permitting. They will be held in the Parish Life Center Gym when it is cold or raining. We hope you will plan to join us each month as we get to know one another, or just catch up, over donuts and coffee.
The Hospitality Committee also hosts a number of events on campus throughout the year, as requested by the pastor. If you are interested in helping with this ministry please contact Paula Almquist.
