"Dress-up Sunday" 

 Sunday Service
July the First, 10 am

Scour your jewelry box, check out your best friend's stuff! 

Bejewel yourself, wear that great hat
 that absolutely  everyone  really wants, parade your finery into church on July 1 and drop off whatever you wish in the Fair Jewelry/hat box... but only after your entrance pictures have been taken.   

A Challenge to our Men!
Will the casual men in our church wear their finery?? Even a funky umbrella? Or homburg or belt?

There are wild and crazy treasures hiding in your home! Renoir, antiques, strange looking figurines, ancient kitchen utensils, odd indescribable treasures!  Scout your house, your attic, grandma's attic, your dusty basement, your artist friends, for the original or budding Picasso. 

Bring them, or wear them, to services on July 1st!  

There are treasures lurking under your nose! "

You heard it from Mary, herself!
What a fun way to celebrate the week of the 4th! 

await your appearance!

You will be famous in the picture gallery of St. Francis!
