welcome to sfcc

"If you're lucky enough to live in Wyoming, you're lucky enough."

This is the West. We do things in a simple, easy-going way out here, and we think that's just okay. We're a small parish in a small town in a big state. Maybe that's why we enjoy meeting new people and hearing new stories.

We know that faith is a tough sell today. We know that hope is hard to come by. We know that love will always be a challenge. But we will keep on believing. Always. Together.

If you make it out this way, feel free to join us for worship and prayer. You'll always be welcome.

"Crafty" Parishioners Wanted

We are inviting anyone who would like to share their talents to set aside some time to pitch in with ideas, suggestions, and artistic talents for the parish. We are planning to make a few cosmetic changes to the church and parish center. Anyone who can quilt, work with wood, paint (pictures and walls), frame pictures, etc., please contact Nancy Ready for more info.

Baptism & Marriage


  • To have your child baptized, please contact the pastor at least one month prior to your preferred baptism date.
  • A one-hour baptism class will be required of the parent(s) (or legal guardians) prior to the baptism.


  • Please contact the pastor at least six months prior to your preferred wedding date.
  • To be married at St Francis Church, at least one of the parties must be Catholic.
  • Couples must complete a program of marriage preparation prior to the wedding. Depending on the circumstances, this can take several months.
  • Important: Before any wedding plans can be made, the pastor must determine that both the bride and the groom are free to marry in the Catholic Church. No date can be set and no preparation may begin until this determination has been made.
  • If one or both of the parties was married previously, the pastor can assist with starting an annulment process. Please be aware that the annulment process can take up to a year to complete.

Our Mission

  • to love God.
  • to love others.
  • to make disciples.
