Lloyd – Roanoke, TX

“I first started coming to St. Francis when I moved here in 1997. At that time, the parish was looking for faith formation teachers and I volunteered at that time. Over the years I have experienced a wonderful transformation of the program and our youth now seem to be more actively involved. The largest impact on my life was when I attended my first CRHP retreat. Since that time, I helped in subsequent retreats and felt called to further my faith. The community at St. Francis has become my church family over the years and I have a sense of belonging here.

I have felt Christ’s calling and felt His blessings many times, and I long for a powerful encounter with Him in adoration. Before coming to St. Francis, I had never been to adoration. It has given me a new sense of peace in my life. I guess the greatest sense of encounter with Christ for me is in other members of this community. There is something special here and I want to go deeper into my faith because of it.”
