Dear St. Francis Community,

Join us this Sunday for the Baptism of Isabel Luna Hecht
This coming Sunday we will welcome Isabel Luna Hecht into the family of God through the Sacrament of Baptism. As we do so, we all have an opportunity to renew our own baptismal covenant. A covenant is a sacred kinship bond between two parties. In the baptismal covenant, God’s grace is granted us through the death and resurrection of Christ and we become members of the Body of Christ. We, in turn, commit ourselves to live for God kingdom. None of us fully live up to that calling, but we pray God’s help to do so. Join us this Sunday and renew your baptism!
