St. Francis Sewing Night: HATS FOR THE HOMELESS
Kudos to our RCIA "Road to Christ" Team and all volunteers who turned out
to sew hats for Deacon John's "Blessed Mother Teresa Homeless Ministry".
You put your God-given talents and faith into action!
Welcome to the website of St. Francis of Assisi Parish of
Dracut, one of the most scenic churches in New England!
You are warmly welcome to share your faith life with us at our beautiful church on the hill, surrounded by 15 acres of tranquil former farmland, a 300-foot boardwalk over protected lands, a prayer garden and lovely scenic views.
As a Catholic community with a vibrant parish life, we are centered in the Holy Eucharist.
In the spirit of our patron saint, Saint Francis of Assisi, together we pray, serve, reach out to those in need, support each other, share warm friendships, hold the teachings of Jesus Christ within our hearts, and bring His light to others.
Come visit for Mass or an event, to pray in our church or prayer garden, stroll over our boardwalk or simply enjoy our beautiful grounds. You're sure to enjoy your time spent here with us!
If you are new to the parish or you are a visitor, please introduce yourself to the pastoral staff or one of our ushers or greeters. In our welcoming spirit, we'd be delighted to meet you!

HOPE FOR HEALING ADDICTIONS
St. Francis Parish’s New Ministry of Prayer
We especially pray for those suffering from any addictions,
for their families, friends and caregivers
What’s new? A book of intentions for addictions has been placed at the front of the church alongside the original “book of intentions”. The original book of intentions will not change. The new book will be specifically used for requesting prayers in the fight against addictions. Both books will remain beneath the picture of St. Francis at the front of the church.
How will this work? All prayer intentions regarding addictions will be written in the new book.
For confidentiality reasons, WE REQUEST THAT NO NAMES BE WRITTEN IN THE BOOK. Simply add your intentions in the book anonymously.
Here is a sample: Dear Lord, please help my son, who is 19 years old and suffering from alcohol addiction.
Who is going to pray for them? These intentions will be prayed for daily by a prayer group. We invite all to join us.
St. Jude, Patron Saint of Hope, pray for us
If you have any questions, please contact the office at St. Francis Parish at 978-452-6611
ST. FRANCIS KINDNESS PROJECT BULLETIN BOARD
Leading up to Christmas, please join us in posting our
"Deliberate Acts of Kindness"
on the Bulletin Board in the church lobby (near the elevators).
Our response to the unkindness and chaos in the world is to
bring Christ's light to others.
Your kindness can be big or small, the only requirement is that you share it.
Kindness slips and pens are available at the board.
Let's inspire each other during this beautiful season of Advent
with our "contagious" acts of kindness. Thank you!
