PARISH MISSION STATEMENT

St. Francis of Assisi Parish is a Christ-centered, multi-cultural community. We strive to be a warm, friendly and caring parish family, where the gifts and talents of all are recognized and gratefully directed to nurture others. We worship together in vibrant and spirit-filled liturgies that inspire us to grow spiritually and go forth healed, affirmed and refreshed to meet the challenges of life.

Therefore, as we have the opportunity, let us do good to all people,
especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
Galatians 6: 10

From Our Pastor

The Founder of Institute of Charity
Blessed Antonio Rosmini

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Welcome to our new parish website. 

It is truly a joy to serve you as the pastor of this dynamic Parish. Since my installation here, at St. Francis of Assisi, I have had the pleasure of meeting and interacting with so many of you. Through our regular and ongoing exchanges and especially, through the many ministries and services that we offer, I have been able to really get to know and love you. 

Bishop Gregory Parkes calls his vision for our Diocese, “Courageously Living the Gospel”. I feel privileged to be part of a parish that is already living that vision, yet continues to strive, day after day, to become even better disciples of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ growing ever more vibrant in our faith. 

May this website help us to know and love each other all the more and give testimony to the love of Jesus, who dwells within each of us. 

Fr. Edison Bernavas, I.C.

Queridos hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,

¡Bienvenidos a nuestra nueva página en la red!

Es un verdadero placer servirles como Párroco de esta Parroquia tan dinámica. Desde el día de mi instalación en San Francisco de Asís, he tenido el placer de conocer a muchos de ustedes.  A través de nuestra convivencia y continuas interacciones, con los diferentes Ministerios y servicios que se ofrecen aquí, he podido realmente llegar a conocerlos y apreciarlos. 

El Obispo Gregory Parkes nombró su visión para nuestra Diócesis, “Viviendo Valientemente el Evangelio”.  Me siento privilegiado de ser parte de una Parroquia que ya está viviendo esa visión y que continúa esforzándose, día tras día, para convertirse en mejores discípulos de Nuestro Señor y Salvador Jesucristo … creciendo cada vez más fervorosamente en nuestra Fe.

Que esta página nos ayude a conocernos y a apreciarnos aún más y dar testimonio del amor de Jesús que habita en cada uno de nosotros.

Padre Edison Bernavas I.C
Párroco
