#TroubieParentsForLife

The Troubie Parents for Life (TPFL) group is comprised of parents of St. Francis alums, who take “four years that last a lifetime” slogan seriously! Keeping in line with the schools’ saying, “we only graduate students,” these  parents wish to continue the great friendships and build more memories interacting with the St. Francis community so that all may flourish.

The TPFL leadership group meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 5:00 p.m., currently via Zoom.

Black Parents’ Group

The purpose of the Black Parents’ Group is to embrace and honor the identity of the Black students and families at St. Francis High School. We support and partner with the Black Student Union and the Black Alumnae Group to enrich the SFHS experience through speakerships, sponsored projects, and cultural exchanges so that current students and families have a deep sense of belonging within the St. Francis community. Our group provides a space where Black parents and parents of Black children can openly share their SFHS experience and support one another during our children’s high school journey. 

If you have any questions regarding the Black Parents’ Group, please reach out to us at BlackParentsGroup@stfrancishs.org

Dads’ Club Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven, hollowed be thy name. We are Fathers of our daughters attending St Francis Catholic High School. We gather today as The Dads’ Club. We ask for your blessings and wisdom to make us the best Dads we can be. We also ask that you bless the Dads’ Club and all its members; so that we may achieve our goals of enhancing our relationship with our daughters. Please bless all our Father/Daughter events of fun; events of service to the Saint Francis community; and all the events of Spirituality. Only through your grace do we exist as Fathers, and only through your grace can we be great Fathers. We humbly request your grace and blessings in the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

St. Francis of Assisi. Pray for us!
