Art And Wine Thank You!
Thank you St. Francis! We so appreciate everyone’s help and enthusiastic support to make the Art and Wine event such a wonderful night. The decorations, wine donations, kitchen help, auction items, art, and ticket sales made the night a success. But really, when it comes down to it, it is you, the parishioners and your friends who came to eat, drink, bid on auction items, listen to music, and share fellowship that made the event a beautiful night to remember. The event grossed $14,000. We are all blessed to be a part of the St. Francis family and to worship and fellowship together. Thanks again! Jennifer and Alex Sams

Habitat For Humanity - Date Change!!! Saturday, November 17 , 8:00 to 3:30 p.m. Breakfast and lunch provided. 15 volunteers needed, plus donations for donor brick wall
Once again, God’s people are in need of a good carpenter. St. Francis is very excited to be joining together again with Habitat For Humanity to help build a home for a family in need. Please come be a part of this wonderful event or make a donation to support our Build Day. No construction experience is necessary. The only requirement is a desire to help make a difference in the lives of others.
To fund our Build Day, the St. Francis community is pledging $2,500 to Habitat For Humanity. Please consider making a donation to this very worthy cause. To help fund raise, the St. Francis community will present the family that will live in the house with an artistic "brick wall". Each brick in this wall will contain the name of a St. Francis donor. Br icks can be purchased for $50. Checks should be made payable to “St. Francis Church” with Habitat for Humanity in the memo section. Please contact Mike Spalding to sign up, or with any questions at (310) 897-3097.
Military Outreach Packing
Sunday, November 11, at 11:30 a.m., Parish Hall. Snacks and water will be served.
