The St. Francis of Assisi Music Ministry invites you to a reflective evening of scripture, song, and meditative silence at our Taizé Prayer Service on Friday, February 23 at 7 pm in the church. The blend of candlelight, chant, and silence create a contemplative atmosphere that enhances our Lenten journey. Check out video clips from our previous Taizé Prayer Services below.
For the season of Lent, we will have an additional Mass on Fridays at 12 pm followed by the Stations of the Cross for those who might be able to stay. (This excludes Good Friday.) We are offering this especially with working people in mind.
On Ash Wednesday, each Friday during Lent, and Good Friday, Catholics are required to abstain from eating meat beginning at age 14. The Knights of Columbus invite you to enjoy a delicious meal at their annual Lenten fish fry every Friday during Lent (except Good Friday) in Henke Hall from 5:30-8 pm. Dine-in or take-out orders will be available.
The Sick and Homebound Ministry takes holy communion to people who cannot attend Mass due to illness, accident, or being moved to a care facility. The ministry serves people in their home, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other similar facilities. Training is scheduled for Saturday, February 24 from 9:30-11:30 am in the Good Shepherd Room. Please register using the form below.

Brothers and sisters visit each other! On Saturday afternoon, March 10, you are invited to join Fr. Tony and Sr. Rose on a pilgrimage to visit our sister parishes. We want to grow closer to each other in understanding our “home parishes.” To do that, we will travel to St. Timothy’s and do a pilgrimage walk, like the Stations of the Cross, that will increase our knowledge and awareness of the realities of daily life. Sr. Melissa, Fr. Mike, and Fr. Izzy as well as other parishioners will guide us on our pilgrimage. For more information and to reserve a place, please call or email Sr. Rose at 210-492-4600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Knights of Columbus are conducting the 40 Cans for Lent drive to benefit our St. Vincent de Paul food pantry. We ask everyone to set aside one can each day of Lent for this effort. You may bring in your cans to each weekend Mass and place them in the bin in the church hallway. If you come to the Fish Fry on Fridays during Lent, you may place cans in the available grocery cart. Our goal is to top the number of cans we collected during the Thanksgiving Food Drive. Blessings to you for helping those in need.
