We hope you will join us to celebrate Advent and Christmas at St. Francis.

This is an enchanting time at St. Francis, with seasonal greenery and candles adorning the church and the altar as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. We welcome you and your family, as well as all guests you have visiting for the holidays. We are grateful that you will be celebrating with us, and we hope you will come again soon.

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas
