Welcome to the Church of St. Francis of Assisi!

St. Francis provides vibrant liturgies, opportunities for reconciliation, top notch adult education, outreach ministries to those in need and many other ways to feed the spirit.  How do we do this? Because of your presence here with us!

St. Francis of Assisi is a unique Franciscan community in the heart of New York City.  We are an urban ministry center that consists of a parish community, but we also reach out to many others in our region who make this their spiritual home also.  That is why we choose to use the language of “member” instead of “parishioner.”  Everyone who decides to be a member of the Church of St. Francis of Assisi intentionally chooses to be a part of this community and here all are welcome!

The people of the Church of St. Francis of Assisi today  join with those of past generations in creating an experience of Church that is genuinely welcoming, mission oriented, and Christ centered. In the spirit of St. Francis, we welcome men and women, people of all races and ethnicities, young and old, gay and straight. We welcome rich and poor, searchers and seekers, Catholics and people of other religious traditions. We are gifted by your presence.
