From the Vestry
1). Here we are…the middle of July…in a month we will be gearing up for back to school. Thanks to all of you who continue to support St. Francis through our transition to a new Rector.
2) Just a cautionary reminder that COVID cases are on the rise again in our area. Please do what you need to do to keep you and your family safe. We love to have all in-person at services but totally understand if you want to watch remotely.
3) Office Hours – Ann will be in the office between 9:00AM and 1:00 PM on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Father Bob will be in the office on Wednesday, July 20 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The office phone will be manned outside of these hours when the office is closed.
4). Our parish will celebrate 100 years of existence later this year. Look for upcoming ways to partake in this celebration.
5) Please continue to offer prayers for our search committee and those who have been called as a possible rector for our church. We can never have too many prayers!!!
6) Some levity to share (because who couldn't use a good laugh these days?): Mrs. Smartt was fumbling in her purse for her offering when a large television remote fell out and clattered into the aisle. The curious usher bent over to retrieve it for her and whispered, “Do you always carry your TV remote to church?”“ No,” she replied, “but my husband refused to come with me this morning, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.”
From the office--Ann’s Announcements
Thank you, Bill Mann for working in this heat to clean up the South Side of our driveway!!! It looks much better.
