In the Acts of the Apostles, we learn about the formation of community.  Just as the followers of Jesus gathered in fellowship, in community, the people of St. Francis belong to a community.  We gather in prayer, in service, to praise, and to give thanks.  We also gather to share our faith and learn from our brothers and sisters in Christ.  These experiences encourage our individual and collective transformation (conversion) and formation (nurture) of our relationship with Jesus Christ.

At St. Francis de Sales, we strive to make faith formation a life-long experience.  We take serious our role in forming adults, children, and youth to live as disciples who live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in every day life. 

You are encouraged to take a look at our programs, processes, and preparations.  Links are provided on the right side of this page for the various age groups.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact the parish office.

If you were to ask 10 parishioners what they mean when they say they are members of St. Francis   Parish, you’d probably get 10 different answers.   Our Catholic idea of “membership” has often been tied more to our family’s tradition than to an understanding of the Catholic Christian message and what it demands of us.

Just Faith

Categories: 

JUST FAITH is happening again in a shared program for the Holland Catholic Community. Firmly rooted in the Catholic Church’s social teaching and tradition, this program engages everyday Catholics in prayer, reflection, and in action that reflects the love of Jesus Christ.  It’s open to anyone of college age or older. This year’s group will meet on Thursday nights from Sept 18 – late April at St. Francis de Sales office building. The ideal group is 12-15 people so sign up now to be part of this life changing experience of compassion and community.
