Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Community is a flourishing parish in the Evergreen area of San Jose, California with a very active lay leadership.
We are a diverse community who gather together to proclaim and live the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. We are a prayerful, inclusive, and explicitly hospitable people who follow the example of our patron, Francis of Assisi, continuously reaching out to serve others.
Our Vision is to create a center of influence within the Church that is faith-based and principle-driven, modeled on St. Francis, that builds a lay/clergy partnership to serve the Evergreen community, our workplace and our world.
We welcome you to come worship with our ecclesial communities for Weekday, Saturday or Sunday Mass.
Quote of the Week
It is better to allow our lives to speak for us than our words. God did not bear the cross only a thousand years ago. He bears it today, and He dies and is resurrected from day to day. It would be poor comfort to the world if it had to depend on a historical God who died two thousand years ago. Do not then preach the God of history but show Him as he lives today through you.
