St. Francis is doing a 2020 Calendar Lottery to help retire the capital debt for our recent Gift and Surge Campaign project.

Help us fill the 365 days of our 2020 Calendar so that all or most of our proceeds can go directly to retire the debt. 

You can sponsor:  The $20 daily prize  OR  the  $50 weekly draw  OR an amount above $20 or your choosing.

We accept gifts cards, gift certificates, and services. We also recognizing important occasions in parishioners lives for a gift of $100.  That day will be reserved for your occasion and the donor and occasion will appear on that date. Other dates will be accommodated with the donor’s name only if the date is still available. Contact 519 682 0814 to give your donation or drop it off at the church with your donation, the date desired, your name, address and envelope number. We hope to have the calendar out in time for Christmas giving, so get your sponsorships in as soon as possible.
