JESUS CHRIST is Risen


Gospel                                      Jn 14:23-29

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Whoever loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.
Whoever does not love me does not keep my words;
yet the word you hear is not mine
but that of the Father who sent me.

“I have told you this while I am with you.
The Advocate, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you everything
and remind you of all that I told you.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give it to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.
You heard me tell you,
‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’
If you loved me,
you would rejoice that I am going to the Father;
for the Father is greater than I.
And now I have told you this before it happens,
so that when it happens you may believe.”

Mission Statement

 
Mary in the winter garden  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!
