The Feast of the Immaculate Conception
St. Francis de Sales will celebrate this Holy Day of Obligation with a Vigil Mass and community Consecration at 6:30 pm on Friday, December 7 (there will be no 9:00 am Mass that day) and 9:00 am Mass on Saturday, December 8. A special collection will be taken for our Catholic homeless shelters, the Havens and the Gardens, at both Masses.
Youth choir and no incense
Prelude Christmas Carols before midnight mass.
12:00 a.m.. Midnight Mass – choir leads carols.
Sundays beginning 12/9 through Epiphany Sunday, 1/6, are Undies Sunday! During this drive, we ask parishioners to provide new packaged or tagged underwear for toddlers through seniors, males and females who are in need. Realizing that dignity starts with the basics, we seek to provide new underwear to those who may not have the resources for this foundational garment (and is one that most agencies don’t provide). All underwear collected is distributed by various social service outreach groups in Licking County. Drop your donation in the laundry baskets found at the church doors or contact the parish office for details.
Women of St. Francis Before Christmas Bake Sale is Saturday, December 8th from 9 am to 2 pm and after the weekend Masses on Saturday evening and Sunday morning.
