WELCOME FROM OUR PASTOR
I have been pastor of our St. Francis of Assisi Parish for nine years. We are the only Catholic parish and school in the City of Tonawanda. St. Francis of Assisi, our patron, has always been my favorite saint! My father was named after St. Francis so we always had a statue of St. Francis in our house. I say a prayer to St. Francis every night to help me as Pastor of this parish. I enjoy my many conversations with parishioners and friends of our Parish. I am here for you at any time. Please feel free to call me at (716) 693-1150.
We continue to thank God for the many blessings He gives to our parish. This year we are reflecting on St. Clare. She was the first female follower of St. Francis and the founderess of the Order of Poor Clares 800 years ago.
Our Religious Education Center will be renamed the St. Clare Center at our Assisi Fest. A statue of St. Clare will be placed in front of the Center to celebrate her life.
Pray to St. Clare and St. Francis that God may continue to give our parish many graces.
