Feast of St. Francis on Sunday October 7th

Bring your pet(s) or animal stuffies to the 10:15 am service this Sunday, October 7th for the Feast of St. Francis and a blessing of the animals! This service will be held in the courtyard.

According to the Humane Society of the United States:

St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals & environment could be viewed as the original Earth Day advocate. Francis’ devotion to God was expressed through his love for all of God’s creation. St. Francis cared for the poor and sick, he preached sermons to animals, and praised all creatures as brothers and sisters under God.

Become an Acolyte!

Want to support the clergy on Sundays? Wonder about the meaning and mechanics of the Sunday service?

Consider becoming an acolyte. We have a strong group of adults that serve at 8:00am and youth that serve at 10:15am. We welcome new members and we are there to support you as you learn. Youth acolytes must be in 5th grade and up. Adult acolytes must be at least 18 years old.

There will be training on Sunday, September 30 at 11:45am in the St. Matthew’s Conference Room, focused on basic acolyte skills.

Lunch will be provided.
