Feast of St. Francis of Assisi

Please enjoy a few pictures from our Feast Day celebrations! Rain did not dampen spirits, and even cleared in time for the Bishop to bless our statue. Thank you to all who helped make this day happen!

We also received greetings from our sister churches Forest Hill United Church and Calvin Presbyterian:

Good Morning Good Folks of St Francis of Assisi Parish,
As I begin worship this morning my heart and mind are filled with gratitude for your presence in our community.  You have been a place of welcome, love and care for 60 years and we at Forest Hill United pray that the next 60 years will equally be filled with service to Christ and the world he loves.
Blessings for your day and celebration, 
Rev. Gary Clark

on behalf of Forest Hill United Church.

This beautiful arrangement was given to us by Calvin Presbyterian in celebration of our anniversary. Thank you!

As part of our Feast Day celebrations and to conclude our 60th Anniversary “year” we were very happy to welcome Bishop Crosby to preside at a special Mass on Sunday October 3 at 2pm. Bishop Crosby will bless our new statue, St. Francis in Exultation, created by Timothy Schmalz, following Mass and those attending were invited to stay to enjoy a cupcake and refreshments on the church grounds.
