Pet Blessing – October 5th at Noon

On a Sunday on or near the feast of St. Francis we hold a service to bless the animals. This year we will hold this service on Sunday October 5th – 2014. St. Francis of Assisi feast day is officially observed on October 4th. He is identified as a humble servant of Christ who willingly took a vow of poverty. He is also known for his great love and concern for all of God’s creation. It is fitting that on his feast day we would give God thanks for the blessings of His creation. This is a time when we can pray for the care and safety of God’s creatures, who are a gift from God. We recognize the blessings that our animals bring to us and pray for God’s care over His creatures. We also remember our charge to care for the creation that the Lord has given us stewardship over. This is a time to not only celebrate our own pets but of the Lord’s magnificent handiwork in all of creation.

Bring your pets and animal companions to be blessed and prayed over individually. All pets are welcome. Weather permitting we will gather outside on the West side of the church. If we have inclement weather we will hold our pet blessing inside the church in the entry way (Narthex). All are welcome. Refreshments will be served after the service for all of God’s creatures.St Francis preaching to Spike

Soup Suppers

Add something new for 5 weeks in Lent. On Tuesday March 11th at 6:00 pm we begin our Lenten soup supper series. Enjoy a meal, fellowship, and brief study. This year we look to our Lutheran brothers and sisters and follow the curriculum from “The Crucified King” presented by Concordia Publishing House.

We will close our evening with a simple order of compline. In the monastic communities, these were the prayers said just before retiring to the “great silence”.

May all be blessed with a sacred & Holy Lent.

Ash Wednesday – March 5, 2014

We will gather for a service of imposition of ashes and communion on Wednesday March 5th at 10:00 am and 7:00 pm. With this penitential service we begin the season of Lent.

Lent is a pilgrimage with Jesus Christ as we remember His journey to the cross. During the next 5 weeks in Lent we will also meet on Tuesday evenings at 6:00pm for simple soup supper meals. There will be a time to break bread at the common table, discuss a brief devotion topic, and close with a simple service of compline.

All are welcome to attend. You need only bring an inquirers heart and pilgrim’s soul.

May all be blessed with a Holy Lent – Fr. Harley+
