GIVING TREE: As we begin the season of Advent and begin our preparations for Christmas, we also continue a long tradition of helping others in need. Gift tags will be available at the back of the church soon. We hope that you will stop in church and pick a tag off the Giving Tree to help an individual or family have a happy and joyful Christmas.

Magnificat Rochester invites all women and men to a breakfast on Saturday, December 1st.  More infomation can be found here.

ADORATION...Please consider giving one hour. You might be able to give one hour a week, or one hour every two weeks, or one hour a month, or even one hour a quarter. Any gift of your time is greatly appreciated and needed in order to keep our parish Adoration going. For those who are unable to participate in other Ministries, Adoration is a PERFECT opportunity to help our parish family by sitting and praying in the church for one hour. Please prayerfully consider this opportunity. Contact Ann Ehrhart 768-4728 for more information.

ST. FRANCIS CEMETERY COLLECTION: During the entire month of November we will collect monetary donations towards the upkeep of the cemetery. Please consider making a donation by placing your gift in an envelope marked St. Francis Cemetery. Thank you.

THE HOLY ROSARY is prayed Monday through Friday at 6:30 a.m. and on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. Please consider coming to Mass early to pray the Rosary with your fellow parishioners.
