St. Francis Parish Council


The Parish Council is an organization of shared ministries that helps the pastor plan and coordinate activities of the parish in order to carry out the mission of Christ in the Church.  The council has identified the following mission statement:

  “We are the Catholic community in Mount Kisco, New York.  Our purpose is to support and strengthen each other’s commitment to the Lord by responding to His love through community worship, charitable works, and educational and social activities.”

The St. Francis Parish Council meets the 2nd Monday of the month, September through June, in room #4 of the school building at 7:30pm.  All are welcome to join us at the meeting. 

Become a member of the St. Francis Parish Council:

The Parish Council seeks registered parishioners to volunteer to join the council for the upcoming term of September 2020- June 2023.  We ask that council members attend the monthly meetings, September through June.  Many of our council members serve as liaisons to various parish committees and activities.  We invite you to consider this opportunity to become more involved in the parish of St. Francis of Assisi - whether you are a long standing parishioner or new to the parish.  We encourage each interested parishioner to submit their name to the rectory.  You many also suggest the name of another parishioner to serve on the Parish Council.  Please submit all names and phone numbers to the rectory no later than April 6, 2020.  Should you have any questions regarding the Parish Council feel free to contact the rectory at 666-5986, Ann Mortimer 666-7297 or any other council member.
