Volunteering Opportunities

Volunteers of the Month!

Meet a dedicated group of volunteers from St. Gabriel’s Catholic Church.  Every 2nd Saturday of each month this group hosts a spirited game of Horseracing for 20-30 residents. Many of them have been coming for years! It’s hugely popular. They provide fabulous prizes and entertainment for the residents.  

4 of these ladies, Dot, Barbara, Becky and Betty come in each December and bring Christmas presents for EVERY resident.  The gifts come from St. Gabriels parish.  Dot Murray has been volunteering at Saint Francis Home for 18 years!   She is a dedicated friend and help to all of our residents and staff.
