We are blessed!

Thank you all for your attendance and participation at our first Confirmation Preparation Session. It was an informative and prayerful evening for candidates and their parents.

There was no better way to end our evening than to spend time in prayer time front of the Eucharist in Adoration. You are welcome to attend Adoration at St. Francis 7-8am and

7-10pm on Mon, Weds, Thurs, and all day 7am-10pm, on Tuesday and Friday (except for Mass times). Many other local churches have Adoration times also!

Make the time as a family, you won't regret it!

If you have not turned in your Confirmation Registration form yet, please do so at your earliest convenience. Thank you!

Candidates must be involved in a service project to reinforce the Catholic Church’s teachings regarding Christian service to others.

Catholic Social Teachings are an elemental part of our faith. Your child (candidate) recognizes the importance you put on acts of service.

Please work with your child to make their service meaningful and lay the foundation for a continued lifetime of giving to others.

  • Candidates should serve a minimum of 12-15 hours

  • Service hours are due at Spirit Day, Sunday, March 6, 2016
