Taize Service

A Taizé service is held at St. Francis on the 4th Tuesday of every month at 6:00 pm. This form of worship is intended to allow peoples of all faith to come together in prayer and meditation.

“It is a time to rest in God, to let the words listened to and sung penetrate one’s being” says Brother John, a Taizé monk. There is no preaching, no teaching. There is just an elegantly simple service: short chants repeated over and over in the dark along with short Scripture readings and times of silence.

Taizé prayer began at a monastic community in Taizé, France, founded in the 1940's by a Swiss man known as Brother Roger. 

Please join us and bring a friend. We can all use some time to rest in God.

Parish Work Day

Come and join in. All hands are appreciated for jobs both big and small. A list of jobs is posted outside the parish hall and you can sign-up for the ones of your choice. 

The parish will provide lunch for all workers. Historically, work days were well-supported at St. Francis and we are now sorely in need of reviving the spirit of “many hands make light work”.  Please come ... working together is inspiring and fun!

In May we welcome Sue Tomlin.

We welcome Sue Tomlin on Wednesday, May 9th, at 6:30 pm. Sue believes that time spent enjoying entertaining music can make anyone feel better. With her enthusiastic renditions of songs, from the sacred to the secular, Sue engages her audiences with her smiles, singing, stories, and her award winning violin and fiddle playing. 

Everyone is glad her mother made her practice.

If you know a time when you would like to donate, go ahead and email Joseph Whidby at joseph.whidby@gmail.com, with your desired time and he will see that you are on the official donation list. Please share this with your friends and coworkers. Even if you don't have an appointment scheduled, drop by. We will make the time for you to donate. 

There are opportunities to donate both traditional Whole Blood and for those with blood type O, A- and B-, there will be a "double-red" machine available. Talk to Joseph if you want to know more about double-red donation. 

We are currently at 70% of our Blood Drive Goal. This is great, but I'd love to get even closer. Bring your family, bring a friend; come and give the gift of life!
