St. Francis of Assisi University Parish is dedicated to serving the sacramental, pastoral, and spiritual needs of the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Through opportunities to pray, to grow in wisdom and understanding, to serve those in need, and to join in fellowship with others, the St. Francis community strives to live out the two great commandments – Love God and love neighbor. The resident parishioners are the backbone of our parish allowing us to continue our ministry to the generations of students that have passed through St. Francis. Our student ministry, Bama Catholic, through programs such as Tuesday Night Mass and Meal, the Search retreat, and FOCUS, helps students feel at home away from home. Through Crimson Catholic, our Alumni relations program, we keep those who enjoined St. Francis in the past informed about what is going on at St. Francis these days. Come, join us on the journey.
