Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Since 1984, St. Francis Church has offered Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. See the weekly bulletin for Adoration Hours or call the Adoration Line at (413) 323-6272, x6 for updates to hours or closing. All are invited to come spend some time with our Lord. To join this special program as a regular adorer, contact one of our Adoration coordinators: Anne Werbicki at (413) 301-3409, Rita Lee at (774) 200-6464, or Celeste DaCosta at (413) 323-7896.
The Michael Sweeney Prayer Line
The 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 the parish business office at (413) 323-6272, pressing 1 during the menu prompt instructions.
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.
Stations of the Cross
During Lent, we pray the Stations of the Cross as a community on Wednesday evenings in the church. Click above for a copy of the Stations of the Cross.
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.
