The St. Francis Prep Parents’ Guild provides a venue for social and service events in the Franciscan tradition.

The Parents’ Guild is comprised of a warm and welcoming community of men and women committed to their own spiritual growth and that of their children. The guild traditionally organizes fundraising events such as Atlantic City and Woodbury Commons bus trips, Modell’s shopping coupons twice a year, Night at the Races, Oldies Night, Christmas Party for our Friends with Special Needs and, the highlight of the year, the Annual Fashion Show and Dinner in the spring.

Other events will be added as the year progresses. The Parents’ Guild has also expanded co-sponsored events with Campus Ministry. The third annual parent - student “Breakfast Run” to feed the homeless will take place on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. In addition, the annual Evening of Lenten Reflection and Spring Family Retreat have also been planned as joint efforts. The Parents’ Guild fundraising events are open to all.

In addition, prospective dad, moms and guardians are encouraged to stop by one of the Guild’s monthly meetings, which usually take place at 7:30pm sharp on the second Tuesday of the month. Check the school calendar for exact dates. Parents’ Guild board members may be reached at or at 718-423-8810.
