God calls each of us to become a saint, and he’s ready to support us along the way by providing abundant blessings. Join us as we seek these blessings by participating in Bishop Robert Barron’s DVD-based program: “Untold Blessing: Three Paths to Holiness.” The first path is “Finding the Center in Christ;” the second is “Knowing You Are a Sinner;” and then the third, “Realizing Your Life is Not About You.”
The study begins on Sunday, September 12 at 10 am and on Tuesday, September 14 at 4:30 pm. You are welcome to attend on Zoom if you prefer. We know that life is busy, so you are always welcome to switch between Sunday morning and Tuesday afternoon. We will cover the same content on both days each week.
There is a study guide available to purchase from Word on Fire. This is an optional supplemental material. Please go to https://store.wordonfire.org/collections/untold-blessing/products/untold-blessing-study-guide-1 to purchase the study guide.
Outside of the optional study guide that you can purchase on your own, there is no cost to register to attend Adult Faith Formation. If you have any questions, please contact Larry Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Since its inception in 1980, the San Antonio Food Bank has been a major force in the fight against hunger in the San Antonio community. As a member of the Feeding America national coalition of food banks, the San Antonio Food Bank serves as a regional hub for food distribution to 200 partner food pantries scattered throughout Bexar and 15 surrounding counties in Southwest Texas. In 2020 alone, it collected and distributed 80 million pounds of food, providing meals to 120,000 individuals each week. To provide such a large degree of food assistance, the Food Bank requires the help of more than 100 volunteers each day to sort, package, and distribute the donated food items. Many of these volunteers participate as organized church groups who regularly assist the work of the Food Bank.
ACTS Core of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church is currently reviewing ways to better advance the Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service missions of the ACTS movement within the St. Francis community. As part of the Service mission, ACTS Core is organizing groups of St. Francis volunteers to assist in the vital work provided by the San Antonio Food Bank.
St. Francis volunteers will be scheduled to help work on the following dates:
|September 24||10 am-1 pm||Home Delivery Driver|
|September 27||9-11:30 am||Warehouse Sorting and Packing|
|October 1||1:30-4 pm||Warehouse Sorting and Packing|
|October 4||8:30-11 am||Community Kitchen|
|October 6||5:30-8 pm||Warehouse Sorting and Packing|
|October 13||5:30-8 pm||Warehouse Sorting and Packing|

|October 26||1:30-4 pm||Community Kitchen|
“Home Delivery Driver” is a half-day session to deliver 50-pound boxes of food to recipient homes and apartments. It is a great way to actually meet the people we serve.

St. Francis is offering a course to prepare baptized adults for Confirmation. This preparation course is for those who have received the sacrament of Baptism in the Catholic Church but have not been Confirmed into the Catholic Church. It is also open to those interested in knowing more about the Catholic faith. The course is taught on Tuesday evenings from 7 pm to approximately 9 pm in the Emmaus Room on the first floor of the San Damiano Building. Classes began on August 17 and will run through October 5. Even though this series of classes has already begun, those who are interested are still invited to register and Deacon Johnny Flores will reach out to you. To register, please fill out the form below or click here to download a pdf version of the registration form that you can turn in to the parish office.
In addition to being baptized in the Catholic Church, adults must have a sacramentally valid marriage in the Catholic Church, if married, to be confirmed. If you have questions about your marriage or this Confirmation course, please contact Deacon Johnny Flores at email@example.com or call the parish office at 210.492.4600.
Those wishing to receive all three Sacraments of Initiation—Baptism, Confirmation, and Communion—should contact Sister Rose Kruppa at the parish office regarding the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).
