Catholic Services Appeal 2021

The 2021 Catholic Services Appeal campaign has begun! 

The CSA provides the opportunity to act together as a family and support programs and services no single individual or parish could offer by itself.  Your gift is very important! 

Every gift, regardless of the size, is vital to the success of the Appeal, so please be as generous as possible with your pledge!

Thank you for your generosity!

There has been confusion about where to send your pledge!

If you have sent your pledge to the Diocese, don't fret!

They are reporting those pledges to us!

If you haven't sent in your pledge yet, please send it to us here at the Parish Office!

Either way - YOUR PLEDGE COUNTS!  Thank you!!

Upcoming Events

Mega Progressive Garage Sale

June 12, 8am-4pm

For the second time St. Francis is unable to hold its annual Mega Garage Sale because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Like many, perhaps you have been doing some de-cluttering making room for accommodating our need to spend more time at home.  Perhaps, you have been setting items aside hoping the completion of the new facilities would provide the opportunity for us to have the sale “in house”.  Well, not this year.

However, you can join fellow parishioners, friends and family by having the SF garage sale at your house with your treasures for sale and the proceeds benefiting the Capital Campaign to purchase needed furnishings to complete the project.

How would a Progressive Garage Sale for St. Francis Church work?

  • You register your participation in the Mega Progressive Garage Sale on the parish website and provide highlights of what customers will find at your sale.

  • You will host your sale on June 12, 8am-4pm.

  • You can organize your sale anyway you wish.

  • Price items your way.

  • Recruit volunteers from your “bubble” to assist you.Invite them to include their items in your sale.

  • Donate funds to the SF Capital Campaign.

How can we help you?

  • Addresses of those participating will be published on the parish website and in the bulletin in a PDF format for printing.

  • Advertisement of the event will be distributed to local media with reference for more information to be found on the parish website.

  • A sign will be provided for you to place in your yard.

  • Donor receipt will be issued to you for your participation.

  • Garage Sale Summary form will be provided to accompany your monetary donation to the parish.
