Rebuild My Church

 

 

 Jesus told St. Francis to “rebuild my church.” St. Francis took it literally and went and rebuilt the chapel of Our Lady of the Angels outside of Assisi, Italy, which had fallen into disrepair. St. Francis later realized that Jesus wasn’t speaking literally about a church building, but rather about renewal within the Catholic Church that St. Francis would help spark.

 

Here at St. Francis of Assisi in Grapevine, we too have received the call to “Rebuild My Church.” Churches are different from other buildings because of how they’re used. The design of these buildings, everything from the shape to what items are used within it, tells us something and has meaning.

 

We believe that everything in a church is designed to put us into contact with God and draw us deeper into prayer and worship. With that in mind, our staff at St. Francis of Assisi  have put together both a live tour and a virtual tour of the sanctuary, which will go deeper into the theology and meaning behind a number of changes to the space.
