Looking For Help!

Last Thanksgiving was a time of family, friends and lots of good things to eat...but not for everyone. Right here in our community there were people who had no one to be with, nowhere to go and no Thanksgiving feast. We would like to make sure everyone here at
St. Francis has the companionship and traditional Thanksgiving meal that most of us take for granted by providing a FREE Thanksgiving dinner for those who are alone or in need. Our goal is to make that happen this year if possible, but if not, certainly next year. However, we need help from people who have the knowledge and experience to organize a Thanksgiving meal for possibly 100+ people. We need volunteers to form some committees to start the planning and organizing of such an event.
If you are willing to help, please call Janice Mazibrook at (510) 853-9458 any time after 5:00PM. Based on the support we have by this April 15th, we will make a decision as to whether to move forward.

Annual Bishop's Appeal - 2014

"Set the World on Fire" St. Ignatius' Prayer for Generosity Lord, teach me to be generous. Teach me to serve you as your deserve; to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to ask for reward, save that of knowing that I do your will .AMEN The Annual Bishop's Appeal began last Sunday. The total budget for the Diocese of Oakland in 2014 is approximately $17 million, and of that the budget for diocesan- wide ministries and services is roughly $7 million. While income is generated to support the budget through parish assessments, rent collection on property, service fees and interest on the diocesan investment, the income does not full meet the budgetary needs for providing all diocesan level ministries, programs and services.
