Principal’s Message
We eagerly await welcoming all of you to Catholic Schools Week! What a wonderful opportunity to reflect on what a gift of grace we have in our Saint Francis community. Saint Francis is a community of encouragement, endurance, and embracing. As we partner in mission to support each other along the way, together we achieve our goals. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday for our Catholic School Mass at 10:00. Students should come dressed in their school uniform to show their Falcon Pride. The second collection at all masses this weekend will be specifically for our school.
After mass, join us for a scavenger hunt and Open House from 11:00-1:00. Come and see the wonder that our students have accomplished, and what lies ahead. Please see the flyer below for the week ahead.
Use the gifts you have:
-if it is to encourage; then give Encouragement;
-if it is giving; then give Generously
-if it is to lead; then do it Diligently
-if it is to show mercy; then do it Cheerfully
