Parish Cycle of Prayer
In our Parish Cycle of Prayer, we pray for our clergy: Brendan, Christine and Ken. We also pray for the households of Tom and Chris Over, Doug and Janice Parker, Bill and Elsie Perrott and Bob and Leslie Phillips.
Adult Formation
On February 16 and 23, Adult formation will focus on the Bishop Search Process and the Transition to a new Bishop. Cindy Russell, who is on the Bishop Search Committee, and Terri Hoffman, who is on the Bishop Transition Committee, will be describing the processes and what the Bishop does. Please join us in the conference room in the Parish Hall at 9:15 am.
Sunday School, 10:30 am in the Parish Hall
Lenten Booklet
In the past several years, during the season of Lent, we were all given a charming little booklet, with meditations for each day of Lent. The entries consisted of original prose and poems, as well as submissions of favorite poems, psalms, Bible passages, uplifting thoughts, points to ponder, and children’s artwork.
The entries came from us-- from our wonderful, talented St. Francis parishioners, from young and old, and drew us closer together for our Lenten journey.
We need your submissions in order to do this! Ash Wednesday is February 26th, but the entries should be in by SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 16 . Start your thinking, and send in your pearls of wisdom and your jewels of thoughts, as soon as possible.
They may be sent to the church office, or given to Deacon Ken or me. Many Thanks!!
Jane Domagalski

Wilsonville Community Food Bank
The Wilsonville Food Bank has asked us to donate food and has requested that we concentrate on selected food items: cereal, peanut butter and fresh fruit. Please bring your donated food items and place them in the small grocery cart in the narthex near the new information desk. A cash donation box will also be in the grocery cart for those who would like to donate money or write a check. The Wilsonville Food Bank really appreciates our weekly food donations! Mary Ann Schroeder would like volunteers to pick up the food donations and deliver them to the food bank. Please give her a call if you are able to help.
