Mission STATEMENT

We, the Community of St. Francis of Assisi Parish, commit ourselves to the unifying work of the Holy Spirit as it unfolds in the Living Tradition of the Church.

We further commit ourselves to witness to that work in our everyday lives by serving God and each other, being missionaries of our Faith, reaching out to those in need, and being the welcoming arms of Christ to all.

Our calling is to worship God, to be disciples of Christ, and to serve with others.

PRAYER OF
ST. FRANCIS

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.
