7 at 7 - Do you like this prayer?
Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time with one accord, to make our common supplication to you; and you have promised that when two or three are gathered together in your name, you will be in the midst of them: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting. Amen.
If you do, you will like Morning Prayer - this prayer is included every day! Come to the parish hall library for Morning Prayer at 7:00 am as often as you like, Monday through Friday mornings during Lent and Holy Week.
Adult Formation Sundays at 9:15 am
Come join conversations about Journeys. We'll be talking about broader definitions of time and changes in the contexts of faith, hope and love, in Lenten, spiritual, and life journeys. With luck and 8-o'clockers' generosity, we'll have coffee and snacks. This week we are each making a list of three ‘epiphanies’ in our spiritual journeys. Make your list and join us this Sunday to see how God has already worked in our lives.
Compline and Dinner
Wednesdays, 6:00 pm (through Lent)
Please join us for Compline and a light supper.
Compline is a quiet service done at the end of the day to quiet our minds after a busy day. A light supper will be provided. Please meet in the Parish Hall.
On Maundy Thursday (March 29) we celebrate the institution of the Holy Eucharist and the last day of Jesus' earthly life.
On Good Friday we remember the death of the God/man Jesus. On the Thursday 2,000 years ago Jesus asked his followers to stay awake with him to pray. They fell asleep. St. Francis will offer a chance for the parish to pray with Jesus. Beginning after the Maundy Thursday service to 7 o'clock Friday morning there will be an overnight vigil in the narthex. Parishioners are invited to sign up to pray for an hour during the night. We have done this for several years and participants have said it was a wonderful experience. There is a sign-up sheet in the information area of the narthex.
Evening Prayer (Vespers) with the monks of Mount Angel Benedictine Abbey
We are organizing groups to celebrate Daily Evening Prayer (Vespers) at Mount Angel Benedictine Abbey. Vespers is one of the Liturgy of the Hours (also known as Canonical Hours, Divine Office, Daily Office or Work of God), a set of prayers that constitute the basis for Christian monastic life. Vespers is also known as Evensong. The monks of Mount Angel Abbey gather in the Abbey Church for prayer six times each day for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and the Liturgy of the Hours; guests are encouraged to join the monks in their daily prayers. The bell for Vespers rings every evening at 5:15 pm at the Abbey and the service starts 5 minutes afterwards.
Meet at St. Francis Episcopal Church parking lot to drive together and carpool, as needed.
Saturday, March 27, 4:15 pm (changed from the 20th)
If interested in joining us, please add your name to the sign-up sheet. For more information regarding these visits, please contact: Lucia Jorge-Nebert (email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Deacon Ken Russell (email: email@example.com).
