St. Francis de Sales Parish invites you to step away from the busy-ness of your Christmas preparations and receive Christ's peace and joy in your heart as we prepare for His coming. Please join us in the Church on Wednesday, December 19 at any time that fits your schedule between 12 noon and 12 midnight as we offer two ways to renew our relationship with Jesus and prepare for His coming through the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
