The people of Saint Francis are delighted to announce longtime parishioner and our dear friend Mrs. Rae Whitney is a 2023 recipient of Virginia Seminary's Dean's Cross Award.
This award recognizes faithful community leaders who do an outstanding job of embodying the Baptismal Covenant.
Past recipients include First Lady Barbara Bush and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright.]
A special liturgy and award ceremony will be held at the Residency, 2100 Circle Drive, Scottsbluff, on Saturday, November 18 at 2 p.m.
Dr. Marty Wheeler Burnett will present the award on behalf of the Dean. An RSVP is not required but would be appreciated.
You can let us know how many will be in attendance by completing this form or by calling the church office at 308-632-4626.
Those unable to attend who wish to send greetings may do so in care of the church, PO Box 1201, Scottsbluff, 69363.
The parish prayer chain is now being handled by the Daughters of the King, specifically Connie Schingle.
A prayer list will be sent weekly to any parish member who wishes to receive it. If you would like to be part of this important ministry, please email Connie at firstname.lastname@example.org
or contact the church office at 632-4626, or email us.
If you wish to add someone to the prayer list, you may sign the prayer request sheet outside the church office, contact Connie Schingle by email, or contact the church office by Wednesday of each week.
If you have an urgent request, please indicate the urgency and the request will be sent to the prayer list recipients as soon as possible instead of waiting for the weekly email.
Prayer requests are typically kept on the list for two weeks, unless you indicate that the name should remain longer.
The Forward Day by Day’s for November - January are here in regular and large print.
If you’d like one of these mailed to you, please email or call the church.
