Patterned after the life of St. Francis of Assisi who announced the Good New in the marketplace, St. Francis Chapel participates in the mission of Holy Name Province and supplements the Ministry of Word and Sacrament in the local Church of the Albany Roman Catholic Diocese.
The Chapel in a Shoppers Park preaches the Gospel for people to come and hear, facilitates diologue with the contemporary world and invites to reconciliation those alienated or marginalized in the Church and Society.
St. Francis Chapel offers a daily opportunity for the celebration of the Sacrament of Penance, Euchristic Liturgies, Expositon of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction, as well as twice daily public recitation of the Rosary. There are popular Devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary on Mondays, St. Anthony on Tuesdays, St. Jude on Wednesdays and the Sacred Heart on Fridays. A quiet space is provided for personal prayer and faith programs of a devotional, spiritual and educational nature.
