Please join other good folks at St. Francis for fellowship and formation this Lent!
Lent is such a perfect, hopeful time of year to be intentional about our faith disciplines and our faith community! Please share some time with us as we journey through this season toward Holy Week. Here are several options at St. Francis, and more to come. Have a holy Lent.
7 at 7 ~ In Morning Prayer, the Scripture stories are continuous, and our shared leadership helps us become aware of the richness and blessings of that daily liturgy in the Book of Common Prayer. We are few, we meet in the library, and we’ll be praying for you and hoping you’ll join us. 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 thinking about chronological (chronos) time, Kairos time, and relative time—so many measures of time! On Sunday 3/25 we’ll be talking about our Lenten journeys this year. We’d be pleased to have you join us.•
Men’s and Women’s Quiet Day
Saturday February 24, 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
Sign up and join us for a quiet day of prayer and reflection, exploring how God is acting in our lives and how we might respond. There will be time for togetherness and separateness, for walks or quiet corners, and to share a potluck lunch. Sign up in the narthex and join us!
Compline and Dinner
Wednesdays, beginning February 21 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.
