School Family Mass Weekend - Come to ANY Mass in Uniform!!!

This weekend will be our first School Family Mass weekend! With the limitations and social distancing guidelines we cannot have everyone come to one mass. Since we still want to let our parish community that we are here and involved in our parish community we want all our students to wear their school mass uniform to whichever mass they attend.

Students will receive a NUT card for wearing their school mass uniform to church this weekend! Just take a picture of your child in front of the church after mass and email Mr. Pope the picture at Hope to see all the students in uniform!!!

Below is the current mass schedule for St. Francis By the Sea Parish

The Parish is Still In Need of Help

The Parish is in need of more volunteers to help out, especially in the areas of: EM, Altar Servers, and Ushers. If you are thinking of returning, now would be a good time. Just let Colleen know if you are interested in either returning or being trained. Volunteers are such an important part in the Sunday Liturgy! Thank you to all of those who have helped us out in making Mass safe for all of our parishioners!
