News & Events


As we begin September 2014 we say goodbye to Msgr. Peter Smith who has helped us out here over the last few years. He has been most present at the Sunday night 6pm Mass, but we all enjoyed his presence among us. Msgr. Smith has been given the opportunity to return home to his native Glasgow, Scotland and will be taking over a parish as pastor. We wish him well in his new ministry and we will miss him.

As we say goodbye to Msgr Smith we prepare to welcome Fr. Edward Beck and his Passionist community to St. Francis de Sales.  Fr. Beck, who is a noted author and commentator for ABC news (in the matters of all things religious) will be joining our weekend staff this autumn.  We are grateful for their willingness to help out in our church and look forward to welcoming them to our parish family.

Front Porch Hospitality

This summer's first ever 'Front Porch' hospitality has been such a great success that we plan on extending our time outside until it gets too chilly to be there. So, in the next few weeks we look forward to making the switch from lemonade and cookie to cider and donuts...(anyone up for donating or finding that donation for us?) We promise once it gets too cold we'll be back inside the church with coffee (and hot chocolate?)
Please keep supporting hospitality in our parish by helping with 'the front porch' either by sitting at the table for a bit to greet folks, by bringing a beverage or baked goods, or just by coming by to enjoy each others company.
