So much to love about St. Francis de Sales: the people, the energy, the diversity, and most of all, God!
La comunidad es muy amable y el Padre Kelly es maravilloso! Participo como ministro de la Eucaristía y esto me llena el corazon. Siento como que Dios está dandome un regalo todas las semanas.
It’s so important — especially with kids — to be able to give them a realistic view of what the Faith is. As a Confirmation teacher here, I feel like I’m helping to shape their vision in a really honest way. I love being a part of this community.
I get to spend time with my aunts in church and have fun. St. Francis makes me think of FAMILY!!
I sing with the Praise Choir on Sundays which fills me with such joy. St. Francis is a healthy, growing church!
St. Francis is a place for expression—of faith, of social awareness, of community.
Newly arrived in the Big City (at age 80!), I walked to the Catholic Church nearest my apartment and immediately entered into into a joyful celebration of Sunday Mass, and a never-to-be forgotten welcome: “Come back next Sunday,” said pew-mates. “We’ll be here.” Almost three years ago now, and the glow of that welcome never fades...
This is my new parish since I moved to NYC ten months ago from the Chicago area. I found an amazing faith community here after attending Mass at half a dozen other Catholic churches.
