Staff Member: Ruthann Ross
As your Pastoral Associate I want to be available and present to you, to respond to your needs, questions, concerns and struggles. Whether dealing with the illness or death of a loved one, dealing with life’s struggles, questioning your faith, searching for your own spirituality or needing a trusted listener, I am here for you and will do my best to respond to your needs. As Pastoral Associate I believe it is my privilege and responsibility to be a Christ-like presence to you, to pray with you and to help you to fully participate in your faith! My vision for St. Francis of Assisi Parish is this; that we are a community of believers, living and interacting with others as Jesus would and striving to love and support one another, welcome the stranger among us and help those in need.
