Additionally - we will email to those on The Parish Email List each week and include the weekly bulletin (including readings and announcements) and provide a reflection on the readings (mini-sermon) for your use. If you know someone who is not connected electronically (either by email or social media) and needs a check in - please advise Father Jeff or the wardens.
A Daily Prayer During the Covid-19 Crisis
Almighty and everlasting God, the comfort of all those in distress, fear or anxiety and the strength of all those who suffer. Hear the prayers of your faithful people during this serious health crisis. Protect our loved ones, our parish members, our community, our country and the world from this virus. Surround all those who travel with your peace, energy and strength and bring them home safely to their families. Above all, we ask your assistance in bringing to an end this global threat and that you protect all those who serve in hospitals, the doctors, nurses and patients who are on the front lines of this outbreak. Bless us Lord in the name of Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen
PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
At St. Francis, we are a community of prayer! This should not stop in the light of recent events - in fact we should be even more vigilant in remembering those in need and abundant in out thanksgiving. If you have people to add to the Intercessions, please send an email to THIS address (firstname.lastname@example.org). In the SUBJECT LINE write Intercessions +Sunday Date. Father Jeff will readily be able to identify these requests, print them and take them into the church to pray on Sundays and Wednesdays. Don't forget your social church circles and reach out to ACW Sisters, Ironmen, Choir Members, Coffee hour team members etc. to ask for prayers or seek support. This is what we do!
Please call the church office at (905) 821-2752 or email email@example.com with your specific questions and/or needs.
