The Weekly Word
 
What a change in our nave!  Through the generosity of so many of you, the pew restoration project has been completed and the pews and other furnishings have been placed in their appropriate places.  The nave feels so much more inviting, and the updated furnishings are certainly comfortable.  I hope that you will soon experience the resurrection of the original pews that graced the first St. Francis nave.  I know you will be pleased.

Fr. Brad.
