Infant Rescue Box

Every year St. Francis takes their Easter and Christmas offering and
combines them to be distributed into the community. This year we were
blessed to be able to contribute to the funding of the recently
approved Infant Rescue Box at the Chesterton Fire Department. Pictured

Manager), Jim Ton (Town Councilman), Jill Wilson (Senior Warden) and

Upcoming Events
by Rich Barber - Sunday, 16 September 2018, 04:39 PM
Good afternoon all my brothers and sister in Christ. Just a brief email about upcoming events.

1. This Saturday September 22nd from 11-3 will be our parish picnic and first responders community outreach picnic. Flyers have gone out to all our local first responders however if you know any personally please extend a warm invitation to join us as they can. We will have to go bins for those that are working that just need a pick me up. We will set up around 1030AM. We will be bringing chairs and tables up from the gathering space, weather permitting, and have a few tents but if you want more comfortable chairs, please bring them. If weather is poor we will cook outside but have things set up in undercroft!

2. Saturday, October 6th will be our pet blessing from 10-2. This is open to all who wish to come and have their pet blessed. We will have light snacks for the humans and treats for the animals. This requires very little set up so show as you can.

Looking forward to seeing as many of you there as can make it. No one is obligated to stay the whole time, outside of the priest and his enduring bride. So come as you can and lets have some fun, outside of our church walls, together. Questions or comments please respond to me only unless it something that everyone needs to know about so we don't blow up mailboxes!

God's blessing on your day and upcoming week!
