My dear Franciscans
I hope that you are well and are keeping safe.
Today I have several things that I would like to bring to your attention.
1. The Quiet Morning led by Diana – Preparing for Lent: Hope and Healing – will be held tomorrow (Saturday 13 Feb) from 8:30 to 10:30 and will take place at the church.
2. On Ash Wednesday, 17 February, we will hold two services:
9:00 am in person at the Church
6:00 pm in person at the Church and broadcast live on our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt35PbtR_ZhmeLxXjQ3EIBg
3. The 2021 Lent Course – Living Holy and Healthy Relationships.
Find attached the Course Booklet. It was written by our clergy team for the entire Province. It is an attempt to marshal the full resources of our faith to build a constructive and positive theology and practice to counter the “second pandemic” of Gender Based Violence.
At St Francis we will take up this theme in our Sunday sermons and in a Bible Study on Thursdays from 6:00 – 7:00 pm on Zoom (link to follow) to start on 25 Feb.
4. Peanut Butter. We are serving an increasing number of people on Saturdays and Sundays (over 100 per day). The main protein we serve is peanut butter sandwiches and we are making an appeal for you to buy some peanut butter and drop it off at the office when you come by. Or you could make a cash donation or and EFT (ref Peanut Butter).
With love and hope
