“Inspired by our faith in Jesus Christ, and rooted in the charism of
St. Francis of Assisi, we actively welcome all people.”
This is the first declaration in our parish mission statement. It is how our community at St. Francis operates.
We are again celebrating this radical welcome to all at our
Pre-Pride Mass on June 28, 2014 at the 5:15 PM Mass.
This is an opportunity for our whole parish community to remember that the Lord invited all people to follow him, regardless of race, ethnicity, economic background, gender or sexual orientation.
It is also an opportunity for all of us to invite to Mass any of our friends who many not feel welcome at the table of the Lord for whatever reason, but especially if they are gay or lesbian. Take the opportunity to bear witness to the unconditional love of God by reaching out and inviting back a brother or sister who hasn’t been home in a while.
