Celebrating 70 Years of Faithful Service to the Lehigh Valley & Beyond!
We remember and we celebrate 70 years of dedicated service to God’s people in providing an oasis of peace where all can come to pray and be with God. We have many fond memories of years of joys and sorrows and wonderful people who walked these years with us.
2018 will certainly be a year to look back and rejoice at the goodness of it all. This year is also an opportunity to look ahead with HOPE. We look forward to seeing what the Holy Spirit has in store for this wonderful place, it’s heart-felt ministry and the many members of our family who call St. Francis Center home!
