Every family has its tradition at the holidays, and our St. Francis Family is no different. It is our tradition on this Tuesday before Thanksgiving to celebrate Mass together. We are encouraged to take the time to see with the eyes of our Father, as individuals and as a community, and be grateful for all that we have been given.
In gratitude, we share our blessings by giving Thanksgiving Dinners to over 300 people in the community. God Bless our St. Francis Family and Happy Thanksgiving!

Recently, student council members, toured and visited with Ms. Dianne Cherry, Executive Director, at The Victory Center. They were delivering the check for $836.00 raised from the sale of t-shirts during October's Cancer Awareness month. The young knights were impressed with all of the services that would be provided to cancer patients and their families due to their efforts in the t-shirt campaign, and honored to have helped.

This Gershwin extravaganza is filled with memorable songs and lively dancing, and Ken Ludwig's hilarious dialogue. This is the artfully constructed tale of boy meeting girl in the Wild West, where they spread goodness and ultimately fall in love.
Audition packets are now available in the main office at school. You won't want to miss "Crazy for You" to be performed at the Franciscan Theatre May 2, 3, 9, and 10 at 7:30 p.m.
