Our Faith, Our Family, Our FutureA Campaign of the Advancement Foundation for St. Francis of Assisi
In an effort to fulfill our mission of building a church of missionary disciples, we began the Our Faith, Our Family, Our Future Capital Campaign in the fall of 2018. We joyfully completed phase 1 of the initiative, which cost just over $1 million, in September 2019. It included beautiful new artwork of St. Francis, a new altar and ambo complete with breathtaking mosaics, a new tabernacle, the re-introduction of the original stations of the cross, updated bathrooms throughout our buildings, and private confessionals.
The Capital Campaign Committee, along with Fr. Sojan and the staff with the collaboration of all our community families kept working towards phase 2. Through the combined efforts of our community, we are going to be able to bring to fruition the resurfacing of our parking lot and building of the St. Dominic Savio Formation Center and Holy Family Adoration Chapel.
Capital Campaign Prayer
Lord Jesus, create in us a new heart. Pour your Spirit upon us so that we may do the will of the Father. Nourish us with your Eucharist and heal us of sin. May our efforts to serve the parish of St. Francis of Assisi be a sign of our love for you.
St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us. Amen.

WHAT ARE WE BUILDING?
We know that God can do BIG THINGS in our city to restore hearts and transform lives. That’s why we’re building a brand-new Catechesis Center that will help us share Jesus with even more people.
This new building will MORE THAN DOUBLE our capacity to share Jesus with our community through Youth Catechesis and Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. It will be located on the East side of our campus and will include:
- 1 Perpetual Eucharist Adoration Chapel: 24/7 access to Jesus in the Eucharist is available to anyone who wants to pray.
- 6 new Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) Atria for children registered in our CGS program; two new spaces for each of the three CGS Levels and age groups. CGS is a deeply transformative, Montessori-based method of Catechesis that has been leading our children to a genuine friendship with Jesus and a love for the Sacraments over the past 7 years.
- 1 new Youth Center for our teens in Youth Ministry to connect, build a healthy & holy community, and grow as followers of Jesus.
