  • Choose to go to Mass in the middle of the week. Wednesday, 2/14/18 is Ash Wednesday and we have Mass at 9 am, noon or 6:30 pm.
  • Evening Prayer – Every Wednesday of Lent, at 6 pm, starting 2/14/18, we will gather in the church to pray the Psalms for Evening Prayer.

  • High School Winter Retreat – 8th grade through 12th, 2/23 – 25/18 at Damascus, an entire weekend to pull away from the world and into God.
  • Parish Mission with Fr. Thomas Blau – 4 evenings (2/25-28/18 at 7 pm) of diving deeper into God, understanding God’s Mercy, and learning to live better & more fully in his ways.
  • Parish Lenten Reconciliation Service on March 6, 2018 – confess your sins and be free. An evening to worship our Lord in Eucharistic Adoration and songs of praise, with many priests on hand to hear confessions. 
  • Sign up for Best Lent Ever by Dynamic Catholic – a daily email that will keep in mind and heart in the Lord through 40 days of scripture, reflections, and prayers. 
  • Holy Spirit Retreat – for all of our Alpha participants, a whole day of growing closer to Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Lenten Homily Series – each weekend of Lent Father Dave will preach a series of homilies on the Mass to help us go deeper in our faith as Catholic Christians. This year, we will look at the Mass, how everything we have been doing at the Mass over the past 2,000 years is biblically based.  If you want to know more about the connection between the Bible and the Mass, or if you have family and friends who have stopped coming to Mass, this is series that can help you and them realize that how the Mass is biblical from start to finish. 
  • Listen to 820 am Radio. Deepen your faith or learn more about the Bible.
    • Place a bumper sticker/magnet on your car. An effective way to reach others to encourage them to listen.
  • Let us communicate with you every week, giving you reminders of what is coming up, along with links to sign-up, and videos to watch through our Flocknotes.
    • To sign up, text the letters SFDS to the SHORT 5-digit phone number 84576. SFDS is for St. Francis de Sales. SFDS is all one word, no spaces. And make sure your auto-spelling-corrector on your phone doesn’t mistakenly change the text.
    • You can also sign-up using the link on this website
    • Once you send that in, Flocknote will send you back a confirmation message AND another message asking you to click a link to complete the process.
