This Sunday - Spiritual practices that help us connect with God and with each other.
This Sunday - Connecting with God through Walking (Paula+), Board Room after both services
Jesus walked everywhere! Sometimes alone and sometimes with others. As he was walking with his disciples there must have moments when they weren’t talking and other times when they were silently receiving and being in the power of nature. Our time together will explore the sacred and natural gift of walking and breathing as prayer and as a way to grow in walking with God.
Lenten Supper Series - "God And Science Agree - We Are Meant To Be Together", led by local psychiatrist Joseph Lee M.D.
Supper ($8 pp/$20 per family) 6:00 p.m. Program 7-8:15 p.m.
Week 4 April 3: Social Hierarchies and Anger
Today’s passage is John’s account of the day when Jesus got so angry that he improvised a whip and ruined everyone’s Passover. But did he do it because anger got the best of him and he got a little carried away, or was this part of the plan? And what was he so upset about?
Dr. Lee specializes in a health-oriented focus on personal growth and well-being, who also speaks at churches and conferences on his passion, Social Emotional Learning for parenting and relationships. He is a life-long learner who enjoys being able to find the intersections between all the facets of his identity and interests. He also has an embarrassingly large collection of Transformers.

Baptism Opportunity!
Are you or a family member wanting the Sacrament of Baptism?  On April 20, the Easter Vigil , the night before Easter Sunday, is our next offering to celebrate someone becoming a new member of our faith tradition. (After that date, Pentecost, June 9, is the next of four offerings in the church year. We also perform baptisms for pastoral exceptions when another time is best for a family.) Contact Paula+ with questions.

“Called to the Wall” Annual Diocese Pilgrimage
Saturday, April 13, 6:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (estimated)
As a beginning to Holy Week, deepen your faith journey by joining Rev. Laurel and Canon Hank in the annual “Called to the Wall” pilgrimage, organized by the Diocese of Los Angeles and San Diego. Stations of the Cross are read along the way. All youth and adults invited. Meet at St. Francis at 6:30 a.m. (lower lot), then caravan to the next stops, which include St. Luke’s Long Beach, where we will meet youth and adults from St. Cross, then St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Anaheim, and St. John’s Episcopal Church in Chula Vista 11:30 a.m. where lunch will be served. The final stop begins at the border parking lot at about 1 p.m.. Pilgrims will walk across the beach about a mile to the U.S.-Mexico border fence.
At each location Stations of the Cross will be read, including several during the beach walk. At the border the group will celebrate the Eucharist on the San Diego side of the wall as representatives of the Anglican Church in Mexico celebrate on the Tijuana side. After the Eucharist, pilgrims will walk back along the beach to the parking lot.
If you’d like to join us, please see Laurel+ or Hank to confirm, and if you have any questions, please let us know. Laurel+ has visited the wall and is happy to share her experience with you.
