Our Parish

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Parish

Our Mission

The mission of St. Francis of Assisi Parish is to live as a charitable, harmonious and faith-filled community as we proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people. As partners in faith, we encourage our members to share their gifts of time, talent and treasure for service to the Kingdom.

A Message from our Pastor, Fr. Greg

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Parish. Staffed by the Franciscan Friars of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Province based in Franklin, Wisconsin, we have been part of the journey of our brothers and sisters here in the Mississippi Delta for over 60 years.

Our Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is the focal point, the "source and summit" of who we are: the Body of Christ. Jesus is our source, and He is the summit of who we strive to imitate.

You will hear this from me from time to time: you don't go to church; you ARE the church. At St. Francis, we invite everyone to respond to their baptismal call by participating not only in our weekend liturgy, but by being involved in one of our many ministries. I invite you to browse through our website, and see where you can be a part of one of our ministries. Being a faithful and faith filled member of St. Francis means that we are good stewards of our time, talent and treasure in helping build up the Kingdom of God in this area of the Mississippi Delta.

So, welcome to our parish family, and know how important you are to all of us.

In Christ,

Fr. Greg
