Here is the place to find consolidated information about worship services, ongoing pastoral care, fellowship and discipleship opportunities, and Zoom links.

Is there a Birthday or Wedding Anniversary for which you would like a Prayer?

Whether it was last week, this week or in the week to come, we would like to pray for your special day on Sundays during our Morning Prayer video-conference service.To do so, please submit by Friday of each week, to the parish administrator, at admin@stfrancisgreatfalls.org the name(s), the date and the occasion (birthday or anniversary) and we will arrange for the Clergy to pray for you or your loved ones, on Sundays during our Morning Prayer videoconference, using Zoom. Thank you!

If you miss the chance to send in your request to the Parish Administrator by email, you have another opportunity to do so at the beginning of the Morning Prayer service, by entering your information into the Chat Box, featured in the Zoom videoconferencing technology. We will collect that information and include in the intercessory prayers after the Collects in Morning Prayer service. Questions? Please contact the Parish Administrator, at admin@stfrancisgreatfalls.org
