Through the sacrament of baptism, we are joined to Jesus Christ in His mission to the Kingdom here on earth. By virtue of this sacrament, we are committed to live out our faith through works of charity and service to the people of God, caring for the poor, the weak, and the suffering.
Each year during Advent our community shares their treasure with others who are less fortunate by purchasing gifts to put under our Giving Tree! Look for the tree in the Sanctuary of the Church and take a tag. The tag will let you know the needs of those in our community.
Red Cross Community Blood Drives
The people of St. Jane Frances have consistently responded to the call to give by the Red Cross. Three to four times a year we host a Community Blood Drive on a Sunday morning after all masses in the parish hall. If you can help in anyway, it would be greatly appreciated—either to give blood or by helping with the event.
Blood Drive Chairperson: Please contact Maureen at 410-980-2926 or .
As a life affirming community, we do all we can to advance the idea that life is sacred from conception to natural death. Keep an eye on our bulletin to see what events are taking place.
Our Daily Bread
Our Daily Bread is Maryland’s largest hot meal program, serving more than a quarter million FREE meals to the hungry of Baltimore City each year. The program also serves as a public information resource, with staff and volunteers available to speak on poverty issues to school and community groups. The parishioners of Saint Jane Frances are asked to provide casseroles to Our Daily Bread one day each month. The recipe for the casseroles along with free aluminum casserole pans are provided at the Usher’s station after Sunday masses the week before casseroles are due.
