Message from our New Moderator
Dear SFCS Members, 
Hello everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the summer season so far!
Once again, I would like to thank those of you who approached me either at the June party or during the Goretti  Group event earlier this month, to congratulate me and wish me well in my new role as moderator of Saint Francis Singles.
Thank you Maria for the warm welcome email!
For those who don't know me yet, I have been a member of this group since 2006, and I can only say that I have been blessed with beautiful friendships and memories through the years. When faced with the reality that the group would no longer exist, I felt I wasn't ready to see it end, and the good news is that many of you share this sentiment with me!☺
As mentioned at the June party, it is very humbling that Maria would consider asking me to take on this vital role; this is a completely new endeavor for me and I will be trying it on an exploratory basis, but I am taking it on with excitement and hope for blessings to continue coming to its members in the way of strong friendships, and opportunities to serve others in whatever way the Holy Spirit guides us.
Due to my busy work schedule and commute, I will not be able to run the group the way Maria had been doing it for the past 16 years (monthly speakers/meetings on the same week of the month at Holy Family Parish), but there will be one event for most months, mostly focusing on the social aspect of the group, and it will be announced with details on a timely manner so you will all be aware of it.
Our Facebook page will be updated.  In the meantime, if you haven't already done so, find us and like us on Facebook, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/StFrancisCatholicSingle
Giving the page a "like" will allow you to get updates about upcoming events.
Also, if you know about another single or single again person that would like to get information or emails, please have them shoot an email to our website so they can be added on to the mailing list at sfcssi@gmail.com mailto:sfcssi@gmail.com
I will be publishing a schedule of upcoming events for the Fall very soon, please stay tuned!
Wishing everyone a restful and blessed weekend!
Nancy
SFCS
