St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church is a vibrant faith community of approximately 700 households located in the lower St. Croix River Valley that welcomes Catholics to worship and practice their faith with reverence and joy. We are rooted in tradition and growing in faith. Through our celebration of the sacraments, faith formation and outreach we offer opportunities for ministry and service.


As we celebrate the season of the Incarnation, may our gatherings with our families and friends and in our worship here at St. Francis of Assisi give glory and praise to our God for His gift of love, our savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.  Our holiday worship schedule is as follows, please join us as we gather to celebrate the season in song, Word and Sacrament.
