THANK YOU!!!

Thank You! Due to your generosity, all the studens were sponsored with scholarships!

Let’s do our part for the environment by cleaning up the trash in the area around the church!  You can sign up here!! Join us Saturday, June 26th from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. in the church parking lot. Gloves, trash pickers, bags, and reflective vests will be provided. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  Please contact Scott Deane for more information.

Eight years ago, the Prince William County Public School (PWCPS) system only had 8 Pre-K classes. The St. Francis of Assisi VOICE ministry began an initiative, that with the help of many other groups, changed Pre K availability for all. Today there are 80 Pre-K classes in PWCPS. Learn more here.

Let’s get ready for post-pandemic parish life with full Masses! Get involved in ministries! Volunteering at Mass is a beautiful way to share your warm smile and gifts, to grow in faith and serve others. Veteran ministers and those willing to give it a try!- please reach out the ministry leaders listed below. Thanks in advance.

Lector Ministry

God speaks to us through Sacred Scriptures. The role of Lector is to proclaim that Holy Word to the folks gathered at Mass. Your voice tells the stories of the prophets, the kings, the saints, and the early church. Express your interest and reach out to Pequitte ([email protected]). Young Adult and Teens – be part of this great ministry!

Sacristan

At St. Francis, there are men and women who do the quiet work of preparing for and assisting at Mass. Sacristans care for altar linens, order wine and hosts, arrange liturgical books for the altar, prepare the altar, light candles, order seasonal flowers, and lots of small unnoticed things. Our celebrations are wonderfully enhanced by their ministry. Interested? Reach out to Pequitte ([email protected]).

Eucharistic Minister

Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers (EMs) assist the presiding priest in offering the Precious Body and Blood of Christ to the faithful. “It is a gift to be a Eucharistic Minister – to share the Body and Blood of Christ with another,” said one Eucharistic Minister reflecting on her experience. This moment is unique because it is both personal and much bigger than the two people. Interested? Contact Chanel ([email protected])

Usher & Greeter

The role of the usher/greeter is one of offering a friendly presence to those coming to Mass, of providing leadership during emergencies and performing such tasks as taking up the collection, presenting the gifts, and assisting parishioners during Communion – always conscious of Christ’s words “For I was…a stranger and you welcomed me,” (Matthew 25:35) Interested? Contact Chanel ([email protected])

Choir & Music

Music is a vital part of the celebration of the Mass. This ministry shares the faith and serves the community, expressing the love of God and neighbors through music.   As we celebrate the Sunday mass, we encourage and promote active participation by means of acclamations, responses, psalmody, antiphons, and songs; and we have fun! Interested? Contact Nikki ([email protected])

Altar Servers

Teens, youth and children (10 years and older) – young adults, too! – help the priests in the celebration of Mass. This ministry is a unique one in the Catholic Church. You are privileged to play a part in the preparation of the Eucharist. Your participation as an Altar Server is special as you serve the priests, the people of God, and above all, you serve Christ. Interested? Contact Chanel ([email protected])
