The connections ministry team includes all the opportunities for members of the church to connect with each other, in both structured and casual settings.

The Women of the Church (WOTC)

The WOTC meet monthly in the evening (usually at Jason's Deli at IH10 & Wurzbach). Their fundraising events include an annual Rummage Sale in the fall, and a bake sale in the spring. Proceeds go toward improvements to the Church. Past projects include new flooring for the Parish Hall, purchase of two kitchen refrigerators, updating office restrooms, and many more worthwhile projects. They also hold an annual African Jewelry sale in the spring - proceeds benefit African Team Ministries.


The WOTC help with funeral receptions and church-wide parish meals. They hold several fun fellowship events throughout the year. All ladies of St. Francis are automatically members!! No fees or signup required.
