Become A Hospice Volunteer
Serves Patients and their Families in you neighborhood.

Want to have more meaning in your life? Do you want to do something that is satisfying and of great service to your community? Then become an Arizona Best Hospice Volunteer! The only qualification required is your desire to help someone in need. You don’t need any medical skills; you don’t even need a college degree; you don’t even need to know what to say. All you need will be covered in our free training sessions.

Volunteers are the Heart of Hospice
We offer Volunteer education classes throughout the year. Patient assignments are made in consultation with the volunteer. “Sometimes all a person needs is a Hand to Hold and a Heart to Understand.” For more information and for the upcoming training, please contact Chantal Gonzalez at 928-750-1890 or 928-503-5817.

 

Calling for Musicians

We are looking for experienced piano players and guitar players that have the ability to lead the Mass in song and worship. There is a calling here at St. Francis. This is not a commitment to play every Sunday. We need musicians to be able to fill in when other musicians are not able to play at Sunday Mass. We need additional substitutes to help out. This is a ministry that needs to be utilized at every Sunday Mass.

God has given you a talent. God is giving you a chance to double your talent by leading his people in praise and worship. We will work with you in the area of preparing music, learning how to set up the sound system, and how to lead. You can start with just four or five songs. You can eventually learn the parts of the Mass such as the responsorial psalm, the alleluia, the Holy, Holy, Holy, and other important parts at another time. St. Francis will provide you with the music. You just need to practice the songs for Mass. It’s a simple process.

Call Tony or Cathy Castro for more information. The number to call is (928)257-5243.

 

St. Francis of Assisi Parish Welcomes Our New Bishop To Our Diocese!

Bishop Edward Weisenburger served as a priest of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City for almost 25 years. On Feb. 6, 2012, he was appointed Bishop of Salina by then-Pope Benedict XVI. His ordination, which marked the beginning of his ministry, was on May 1, 2012, at Salina’s Sacred Heart Cathedral. He will be installed at the 8th Bishop of Tucson on November 29th, 2017 at 2PM at Saint Augustine’s Cathedral.

Bishop Weisenburger has worked in his diocese to help the poor, recruit vocations, get higher education for clergy, and restructure the Diocese’s chancery to allow for more collaboration. He has an intense concern and love for the well-being of migrants, refugees, and Native American peoples. Bishop Weisenburger enjoys a working knowledge of Spanish and has always treasured his ministry with the Hispanic community.

Bishop Kicanas said, “We are blessed that the Holy Father Pope Francis has appointed as our seventh Bishop in the Diocese of Tucson, a caring and loving pastor and shepherd for our community. He will walk with us, listen to us and stand up for us. His many gifts will provide the pastoral leadership we need.” Here is a link to his remarks to the Diocese on October 3rd–the day the Vatican announced his appointed.
