Looking ahead at 2018! Our Annual Meeting is right around the corner. This year, the meeting will be held on January 14 after the 10:30 am service. Mark your calendars, and come hear all the great things that happened at St. Francis in 2017. Also, meet the candidates and vote for new Vestry members.



Two years ago, during the season of Lent, we were given charming little booklets, with meditations for each day of Lent
The entries consisted of original prose and poems, as well submissions of favorite poems, psalms, Bible passages, uplifting thoughts, points to ponder, and quotations. The entries came from us, from our wonderful, talented St. Francis parishioners, from young and old, and drew us closer together for our Lenten journey.
We need your submissions in order to do this. Lent begins on February 14. Submit those jewels of thought as soon as possible. They may be sent to the church office.
*Names on the submissions are optional.
