What's Happening!
Invitation to a Holy Easter
Following our Palm Sunday service, Paula+ speaks of the Holy Week that is to come, and how we can experience the love of Jesus in our lives, our work, our homes, and together at St Francis.
Holy Week and Easter - please double-check dates and times.
Tonight, Mar 29 Maundy Thursday —6:30pm. The Parish Hall becomes the Upper Room. A simple supper plus short service includes foot-washing, Eucharist, and dramatic readings of Jesus' last evening with the disciples.
Fri, Mar 30 Good Friday
12:00 noon—Stations of the Cross
7:00pm—Service of Light to Darkness, and anointing with Holy Oil.
Sat, Mar 31 The Great Easter Vigil —7:30pm  
Considered by many to be the most important service of the year, the Easter candle is lit from the first fire of Easter.
Sun, Apr 1—Easter Day —8am and 10am worship, with Easter Egg Hunt following 10am.
Parking on Easter Sunday for 10am
Our welcome begins in the parking lot!
We all know that parking is tough at the 10am service on Easter Day. Two thoughts - if you are not disabled, there are plenty of places to park for free just 5 to 10 minutes away round the corner at Paseo de la Playa . Or even consider a cab, or Uber or Lyft perhaps and save yourself the entire driving and parking hassle!
The labyrinth will be available for your use until 3pm on Good Friday.
