St. Francis

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church

Saint Francis of Assisi parish is commissioned by Christ to continue his saving mission in Lincoln County and Franklin County Mississippi.

Following the example of Saint Francis of Assisi, we wish to offer ourselves in union with Christ, who humbled himself so we might share in his divinity.

Faithful to the Roman Catholic Tradition, we dedicate ourselves to worship God through the church’s liturgy and prayer and we commit ourselves to sharing the gospel with all God’s people.

We ask the Holy Spirit to empower us for the formation of parishioners in the Catholic faith; the evangelization of others who wish to join the church; and the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.


Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
