Diocese of lexington 2020 Annual Appeal
"one in Christ"

The Diocese of Lexington's Annual Appeal is a visible expression of our unity as the Body of Christ.  Each donation to the fund is a sign that we believe in the Gospel message to “love one another as I have loved you” [John 15:12]. It is an affirmation of our belief that “faith without works is useless” [James 2:20].  It demonstrates that we believe that whatever you do to others, you do to Jesus.

Gifts to the Diocesen Annual Appeal fund are distributed via a grant process, and provides vital support for parishes, missions of parishes, Catholic schools, outreach ministries and diocesan-wide programming.  The areas receiving funding are transforming lives of Catholics and other members in our community through acts of service and we need your help.

COVId-19 precautions

St. Francis Church is open for public worship at our campus! As a church in the Diocese of Lexington, we follow the directives issued by Bishop John Stowe O.F.M. Conv. As of Sunday June 14, we are able to have Mass at 50% of the building capacity. Most of the regulations affect the priest, but the biggest thing for the people is to wear a face covering and to maintain 6ft between households.
"In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"
Our first priority as a church is worshipping God the almighty Father through His Son Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit. As Catholics, we do this by prayer, reading the Bible, and offering the sacraments. We would love to have you worship with us!
"Whatever you did for the least of my brothers, you did it for me"  (Mt 25: 40) 
Serving others is at the heart of the Gospel. In response to the call of Jesus, St. Francis Church has several service ministries. We collect food for Blessing Boxes, put on a Christmas Store,  and support the work of United Helping Hands. We would love for you to get involved!
"Go and make disciples of all nations" (Mt 28:19)
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church is here to preach and minister to everyone in Pike County, Kentucky and the greater Central Appalachian region. Christ meets everyone where they are, and so everyone is welcome! Christ always changes those who meet Him, and so everyone is called to grow!
