Jesus said to his disciples:
"When the Son of Man comes in his glory,
and all the angels with him,
he will sit upon his glorious throne,
and all the nations will be assembled before him.
And he will separate them one from another,
as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Then the king will say to those on his right,
'Come, you who are blessed by my Father.
Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me,
ill and you cared for me,
in prison and you visited me.
Then the righteous will answer him and say,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you,
or thirsty and give you drink?
When did we see you a stranger and welcome you,
or naked and clothe you?
When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?
And the king will say to them in reply,
'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did
for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.
Then he will say to those on his left,
'Depart from me, you accursed,
into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry and you gave me no food,
I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
a stranger and you gave me no welcome,
naked and you gave me no clothing,
ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.
Then they will answer and say,
'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty
or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison,
and not minister to your needs?
He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you,
what you did not do for one of these least ones,
you did not do for me.
And these will go off to eternal punishment,
but the righteous to eternal life."

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
