2022 Archbishop’s Appeal for Ministries

On behalf of Archbishop Gustavo and Father Tony Vilano, we invite you and your family to participate in this year’s Archbishop’s Appeal for Shared Ministries by offering a sacrificial gift. Our theme for this year’s Appeal is Our Journey Together.

What is our Archbishop’s Appeal for Shared Ministries? It is the transformative love that is so critical to the life of our local church. It is the ministry shared between St. Francis of Assisi and the Archdiocese of San Antonio, between Father Tony and Archbishop Gustavo. It is a compassionate love for those most in need.

Let us journey together to financially support the formation of priests and deacons who will serve our parish soon. Your financial support helps prepare lay leaders to serve as catechists, chaplains, and lectors. It offers a Catholic education to families in need. It broadcasts televised Masses and helps expand our reach through other digital media. Your financial support to this Appeal will share Christ’s love as it feeds, clothes, shelters, and cares for the most vulnerable. All these shared ministries, our ministries support our neighbors in need and further the mission of the Catholic Church.

Our parish goal is full participation. To accomplish this, we need your support. Every family should participate by making a gift to this appeal. Any gift, any amount will make a difference in somebody’s life.

Please pray and find it in your heart to make a sacrificial gift to this year’s Appeal. Gifts can be given online at www.archsa.org/archbishops-appeal, by using text-to-give 210.750.6712 keyword APPEAL, or with the Appeal envelope that we will have available in the church. All of these ways of giving to the Appeal are safe and fast. Please make sure to indicate that you are giving from St. Francis of Assisi San Antonio. Thank you and may God bless you for your willingness to share your prayers and financial support to this Appeal.

Adult Faith Formation Registration

Our Fall 2022 Adult Faith Formation begins on Sunday, October 9 and Tuesday, October 11. We will be studying Conversion: Following the Call of Christ by Bishop Robert Barron.

In this film and study program, Bishop Robert Barron illuminates six biblical stories of conversion, demonstrating how six ordinary people, just like you, were met by Jesus where they were and called to a better life through him. The common theme in each story is the turning of all one’s attention and energy toward an ever deeper, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

In his characteristically energetic style, Bishop Barron explains how conversion is not so much a one-time event, but a life-long process. “Jesus Christ calls us in thousands of different ways to follow Him, as we strive on the path for spiritual excellence,” explains Bishop Barron.

We meet on Sundays from 10 am to 11 am in the JP II Room. We meet on Tuesdays from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm in the Emmaus Room. You are welcome to join us in person in the San Damiano Building or online via Zoom.

There is a study guide available for purchase at https://bookstore.wordonfire.org/collections/conversion/products/conversion-study-guide-1.

Please contact Larry Perry at lperry@sfasat.org if you have any questions.

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.
