Let us pray for your needs and intentions – you and members of your family, both living and deceased, will be remembered in the Novenas celebrated for your intentions and in the masses offered each day for you.

Dear Friend,

We’ll soon set out together on a nine-day journey of faith guided by the light of Jesus Himself.

I pray you will join us for our Christmas Novena of Masses from December 16 to Christmas Eve, December 24.

Kindly send your personal petitions and intentions to me now to be included in the Novenas of Masses. Each day of the Novena, through the grace of our Savior, we will remember your intentions as we bring the gifts of prayer and thanksgiving to those in utmost need; our loved ones and friends; and to the men, women and children we continue to serve together through our Franciscan Missions in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

Please also remember our missionaries among your intentions and if you are able, include an offering of any amount to assist their work here in the United States and in our missions in Central America.

As the Wise Men brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the newborn Savior, so your gifts of prayer, thanksgiving and support honor Him as together we do his good work on earth.

God bless you this Christmas and all year long!

Yours in St. Francis,


Fr. Robert, O.F.M.

P.S. Request our lovely Christmas Enrollment cards to help share the light of our Savior’s presence with others. Use them to enroll friends or loved ones in the daily Masses and prayers of our Franciscan Friars the whole year long.
