About our Web Site
|"This ain't a football game. We do this every day."|
— Earl Weaver
The work of Saint Francis isn't football: it isn't a Sunday-by- Sunday proposition. The most important thing we do is worship to be sure. That is the heart of all we do. But a lot of preparation goes into a Sunday morning, and Sunday's just the beginning of the week around here. We're a baseball sort of parish. Our work is daily.
Our web site reflects both these realities. Its purpose is to assist you in the saying of your prayers, at the altar we serve here or some other like it. And toward that end, the content of our site is managed and added to daily. Yes, one aspect of it — Explore St. Francis virtual tour — is still to be completed. But there is now plenty to keep you returning to the site daily. And every week, there will only be more.
Now, for some shop talk: We've learned recently that our site is not displaying properly on web browsers that are not of recent vintage. Here is a February 12, 2010 screenshot of the home page of our web site:

This site is with the church newsletter 'Sounds' a primary communications instrument of the parish that should be a source of encouragement to you. We hope it will take by the elbow people who are not here yet, as well as friends of Saint Francis far away, point them to Jesus Christ, and say, Behold! If you seek a church, we invite you to visit us and with us get involved with the God who rescued Israel from bondage in Egypt and raised Jesus from the dead.
"Ninety feet between bases is perhaps as close as man has come to perfection."

And this, from the "For What It's Worth Department": The distance from the west end doors opening on the nave of Saint Francis to the place where the celebrant stands to lead us in worship? One thousand eighty inches. That's 90 feet, for those of you keeping score at home.
