This Wednesday, September 7th, Bishop Douglas Sparks will visit St. Francis. He will lead the 6:00 Mass and meet with the Vestry. We will have a short reception after Mass so you can meet and talk with him.
Through a generous donation we now have a San Damiano Cross installed on the Gospel side of Altar.
The San Damiano Cross is the large Romanesque rood cross that St. Francis of Assisi was praying before when he is said to have received the commission from the Lord to rebuild the Church.
The original cross hangs in the Basilica of Saint Clare (Basilica di Santa Chiara) in Assisi, Italy. Franciscans cherish this cross as the symbol of their mission from God.
