Interior Courtyard Coming Soon!
The interior courtyard is undergoing a major renovation to correct flooding issues affecting the school and create a space for outdoor learning and reflection. The renovation is expected to cost $25k. $10k has already been received through the Annual Catholic Appeal Grant. Please donate to the SFA Interior Courtyard Fund online at goo.gl/805FpU. Or make a check payable to St. Francis of Assisi, add Interior Courtyard to the memo line, put it in an envelope marked Interior Courtyard, and drop it off at the rectory or collection basket on Sunday.
