Vision: The St. Francis Church family seeks to glorify God through worship, fellowship, teaching, and service. We worship God in the Episcopal tradition, hear God through the preaching and teaching of Christ’s Gospel and serve God by caring for others.
We're a friendly, informal group. We invite you to come worship with us this Sunday morning!
Saturday, August 22 is the date for our Foodies outing this month. This time we will enjoy lunch at El Vicino which is located in the parking lot of the shopping center at Coors and Corrales Rd. (This is the center where Sprouts is located). As usual we will gather at 11:30 AM. Everyone is invited to join us in this great opportunity for Fun, Food and Fellowship! Bring friends if you'd like. Please let us know if you will be attending so the restaurant can set aside enough seats for all of us. RSVP with Marion DeVries 505-897-0015
Each time I step in the sanctuary, I am moved by your faithfulness. Loving and caring parishioners who seek no individual attention or credit. We come through the sanctuary doors as individuals to the liturgy, say those ancient words, and we come together as a community to share the body and blood of Christ. In doing so, we mysteriously become the living body and blood of Christ. No other experience in this world is as meaningful At the end of the service, I see your smiles, feel your embrace, and we speak of our journey together. Simply, it is a sacred gift to share this time with you, and I am grateful. Yesterday was bountiful. Suzanne and I left the parish hall with an abundance of gifts - flowers, scones, bread, rolls, cards and gifts. No reason other than your love. We hold it gently and cherish it tightly. I want to say - thank you. You will always be a special part of my ministry.
I would light to highlight two important items for the upcoming weeks. Keep checking for our fall class schedule. It will be interesting, challenging and informative. Also, keep October 4th on your calendar. This is our patron feast day (St. Francis Day) and we will have a potluck after each service and blessing for the animals. Look for the midweek Note From the Padre. We will be highlight our Music Director Mr. John Clark.
Finally, a close and dear friend told me of the passing of her nephew George. He was on holiday in Turkey and passed at the young age of 52. I ask that you hold George and his family in your prayers. May the angels welcome him and may he live throughout eternity in the wondrous light of Christ.
