Statue Blessing

We invite you to the blessing of the bronze statue of the Homeless Jesus that was installed during the summer in the front of St. Francis Church on 31st Street. The statue, by sculptor Timothy Schmalz, has captured the attention of many people who pass by the church, often leaving coins or food in the figure’s outstretched hand.

The blessing will take place immediately after the 11:00 Mass next Sunday, October 6.
