Spreading Love & Hope...

Hello [subscriber:firstname | default:reader],

Welcome to Saint Francis Parish! We are a radically inclusive and welcoming Franciscan Old Catholic Parish. We live by the motto that we are a parish that celebrates who you are not just tolerates you.

We are currently limiting the number of people who can attend in person services. If you would like to attend in person, please visit https://oursaintfrancis.org/calendars/ to reserve your seat. Otherwise, you can join us for Mass via Facebook Live, Twitch, Tiktok, or YouTube!

Looking toward the future

We have weathered a storm like no other. Our nation has endured not only the worse worldwide pandemic in a century, but we also survived an insurrection and attempted civil war.

We hope you will join us as we resume our in-person worship on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at 7:00 PM. Below is the listing of all services during Lent. You MUST reserve a seat if you wish to attend by vising https://oursaintfrancis.org/calendars/.


Donations

You might not know this, but here at Saint Francis we do not take up a collection. We believe that when we gather for Mass, we should focus all our attention on the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Stopping to take up a collection diverts our attention from the most important task at hand, spending time with Jesus!

If you would like to donate to our parish, you can do so by leaving a donation in the basket next to the service books in the back of the church or by visiting our website. You can set up reoccurring donations or make a one-time donation at https://oursaintfrancis.org/support-us/.

As you can see from the link, our site uses state of the art security to protect your financial information from beginning to end.

Blessing Bag Program

You can donate at our website above to support the Blessing Bag/Homeless Outreach Ministry or by visiting our Amazon Wishlist at https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3RH2DTASDCBWI.

All items can be sent to 118 Frances Drive, North Augusta, SC 29841.

Amazon Smile

We are also proud to announce that you can support Saint Francis every time you buy something at Amazon.com! You can visit https://smile.amazon.com/ch/47-1657061 and every time you shop, Saint Francis will get a small donation.
