Gardens +all @ St. Francis Catholic Parish
St Francis of Assisi Gardens & Grounds
Several gardens surround the St Francis of Assisi campus of buildings. These gardens need to be a beautiful expression of hospitality and appreciation for God's creation.
A Service Opportunity Offered Especially For 6th & 7th Grade Scholars,
St. Francis Peace Garden!
Students and their families are invited to embrace caring for the Peace Garden (in front of the school near St. Francis tiled mosaic pillar). The Peace Garden was a gift to the school on the occasion of the 60TH ANNIVERSARY (1952 TO 2012) of our great ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI SCHOOL. This year 2021 is the 69th Anniversary, and so we are preparing for the 70th Anniversary in 2022. The Spring and Summer months are a great opportunity for students/families to gather at a Wednesday 9:15 AM Mass and after then go out to the garden to plant, weed and water for about 30 minutes. Directions on how to best assist in our Peace Garden will be provided thanks to the leadership of Karen Cole. [POSSIBLE 2021: Wednesdays, June 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, July 7, 14, 21, 28, August 4, 11, 18, 25.] We each take ownership-pride in our St. Francis campus grounds.
