Our Mission

St. Francis of Assisi University Parish is the Catholic Church’s presence at the University of Alabama. Gathered in prayer, formed by the Word of God, and committed to serve God and neighbor, we build a community of faithful disciples of Jesus Christ traveling together towards the Kingdom of God, our eternal home.

Our Vision

St. Francis of Assisi University Parish enriches the lives of its resident parishioners, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community. As a faith family, we strive to :

  • Welcome all to grow in their relationships with God and neighbor;
  • Commit our collective time, talent, and treasure to foster the Catholic faith;
  • Engage all in the ongoing faith life of the parish through worship, formation, prayer, and special events;
  • Build the community of God through effective communication and involvement in ministries, social activities, service, and outreach.
