Ministries

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone.

– 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 

At St. Francis Catholic Church, we invite every person in our Grapevine community to encounter Jesus Christ, grow as His disciple, and serve in a ministry and on mission. We encourage you to engage regularly in activities, events, and ministry groups which facilitate these steps along your spiritual journey. You may feel ready to serve in a liturgical ministry or as a hospital missionary, or you may still have questions about the Catholic faith and desire to grow deeper in a small group or bible study. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to learn how you can Encounter, Grow, and Serve at St. Francis. Then peruse the ministry directory below for more specific ways you can get involved.
