Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Since 1984, St. Francis Church has had Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Presently, there are two assigned adorers in prayer before the Lord in the Chapel 8:00 AM - 10:00 PM on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM on Thursdays.  Parishioners may visit during these times.  To join this special program and spend an hour in quiet meditation, contact the Adoration number at (413) 323-6272, ext 6 or coordinators Sue Miffitt at (413) 213-0302 or Maureen Paul at (413) 323-6836.

 

The Michael Sweeney Prayer Line 

he prayer line was formed after parishioner Michael Sweeney was severely injured in a fiery accident.  He asked that we pray with him, and after his passing his request took on new meaning.  Our prayer line then came into existence and was named in his memory.  To request prayers for yourself or a loved one, or to take an active part in this ministry of intercession and thanksgiving, contact any one of the following coordinators: Louise Groux, (413) 323-4046 ; Gloria Cartelli, (413) 323-7400 ; or the Parish office at (413) 323-6272, pressing 1 during the menu prompt instructions.

 

Traveling Statue of the Virgin Mary

The statue of Our Lady of Fatima is approximately 2-feet tall and is available for devotion in your home.  A list, by weeks, is available in the Tovet Room of the Church.  Parishioners can avail themselves of a particular week that they would like for their devotion and sign up on that list.  For further information, please call (413) 323-6272 .

  

Vocations Cross


Each week our special Vocations Cross is presented to a parish family so they may pray together for an increase in vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and consecrated religious life.  A sign-up book is located in the Gathering Space of the church.  Presentation of the Vocations Cross can occur either at the end of Mass or in private.
