The Pharisees went off
and plotted how they might entrap Jesus in speech.
They sent their disciples to him, with the Herodians, saying,
"Teacher, we know that you are a truthful man
and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.
And you are not concerned with anyone's opinion,
for you do not regard a person's status.
Tell us, then, what is your opinion:
Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?"
Knowing their malice, Jesus said,
"Why are you testing me, you hypocrites?
Show me the coin that pays the census tax."
Then they handed him the Roman coin.
He said to them, "Whose image is this and whose inscription?"
They replied, "Caesar's."
At that he said to them,
"Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar
and to God what belongs to God."

"Let us always belong to God, unreservedly and without interruption. May He ever live and reign in our hearts."

Mission Statement

 
Mary's Garden 2012  Being the visible body of Christ in the territory assigned to St. Francis de Sales  Parish and conscious of our founding as a congregation in 1722, we the community of  St. Francis de Sales, state that we come to joyously worship our Lord and Savior  Jesus Christ and to strive for full justice in our personal and public affairs, to  reverence and care for the earth and its bounty, to bring glad tidings to the poor and  the oppressed, to heal the many wounds that abound in every life and to live our lives  in such a way that all who see us will truly know that God indeed exists.  We invite all  persons to come and taste how sweet the Lord is! SFdS Church
 

"Truly CHARITY has no limit; for the LOVE OF GOD has been poured into our hearts
by His Spirit dwelling in each one of us, calling us to a life of DEVOTION
and inviting us to bloom in the garden where He has planted
and directing us to radiate the beauty and spread the fragrance of His Providence."

Saint Francis de Sales
