Sacramental Communion

  Many parishioners have been participating at holy Mass by means      of our Cathedral live streaming Monday thru Friday at 7:00 A.M.        and Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 A.M. and by partaking of
  spiritual Communion. Physical attendance continues to be
  prohibited, yet we know that people join in prayer by using their 
  home computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones.

  To accommodate those who seek Sacramental Communion, we will
  provide the Holy Eucharist for those who participate at 10:30 am
  Mass on Sundays by either your live streaming Mass on Sunday
  while in our parking lot or by coming in your cars to Library Place
  immediately after the final blessing of Mass. Priests will be there
  with the Blessed Sacrament for those wanting to receive our Lord.

  DIRECTIONS:
  *Turn off Main Street on to Library Place where you will notice our
    priests and deacon.
  *Pull up to them and lower your car windows. The new law does
    not  allow you to exit your cars.
  *Having received the Holy Eucharist, raise your windows and drive
    forward to exit Library Place.

  This will be continued on Sundays as long as the lockdown
  continues.


May our Lord, Our Lady of Guadalupe and
Saint Francis bless and protect you.

Dear Parishioners and Friends of Saint Francis,        

A very BLESSED EASTER! Here is where our real joy resides. We should put ourselves in the position of  our Blessed Mother and the Apostles and other disciples who were so devastated that their Lord and  Master, their Savior died and was gone. We can really imagine how they must have felt on Easter Sunday morning when they heard “He has been raised.”

For the past weeks we may have disillusioned ourselves by an invisible virus emptying our lives as we knew them. We could have easily thought God had abandoned us. Yet, this is precisely the reason Jesus accepted his Father’s will, that he offered Himself on the Cross for our lives. It was to assure us that with our sins forgiven we can live always and forever in the Presence of our loving Father.

Take heart, my dear friends. Jesus has not left us, and if we at times have left him He forgives us! We are saved! We can now love Him and love one another to find renewed peace and divine blessing. The wishes and prayers of our Cathedral parish family join you in sharing the Divine Presence of God our Father and his Resurrected Son united to us in his Holy Spirit.

                                                                             BLESSED EASTER!
