One hallmark of Franciscan spirituality is to extend welcome to all. On behalf of the Franciscan Friars of the Third Order Regular, we extend this heartfelt invitation:
No matter what your present or past status in the Catholic Church
No matter what your current family or marital situation
No matter what your past of present religious affiliation
No matter what your personal history,
age, background, race, or color,
you are invited, welcomed, accepted and loved here at
Saint Mary Our Lady of Grace.
In the words of Saint Francis of Assisi,
"May the Lord give you peace."
The Franciscan Friars, Third Order Regular and Parish Staff
