St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church offers a number of ministries to share your God-given gifts of time and talents with the church as well as with the community. I earnestly encourage all of you to give to God, in return, by engaging in one or more ministries in the church.
Please go over these ministries that St. Francis Church offers, listed in alphabetical order, to see where God wants you to be involved. If you don’t find a Ministry that fits your God-given talents, let us know. We would be glad to begin a new Ministry where you can exercise your talents for the church. He is calling you to build His church. Would you listen to Him?
—Fr. Jose Thomas Mudakodiyil
