St. Francis Parish Ministries

We have been called to be servants of Christ and we have been sent as ambassadors to the world. Jesus said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” In this, He has called us into spiritual service and a life of ministry.

The Ministries at St. Francis offer many opportunities to gather together, as children of God and serve the Lord. We believe the love of Christ shines brightest when His people reach beyond themselves, interact, and care about people around them. We have been given the opportunity to serve others as a response to the call Christ gives us to be his disciples.   When we serve God in this way, we share the love of Christ and allow Christ to continue to work in us as well.

Christ Has No Body
by St. Theresa of Avila

Christ has no body but yours,
no hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which
he looks compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which
he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands,
with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours,
no hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with
which he looks compassion on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
