Strawberry Picking

We have access to a wonderful strawberry patch near Carthage (off 15-501). If you’d like to be notified of picking days, email judithedm@windstream.net to be added to the email notification list. We meet at St. Francis, sometimes on a weekday, sometimes on a Saturday and drive down together.

BOOK SELECTION: Liturgy of the Ordinary—Sacred Practices in Everyday Life by Tish Harrison Warren


One more copy of the book is still available for $12.  At the event, we’ll linger over light, springtime brunch fare and then talk about what we’ve discovered in our reading.  BRUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED BY THE WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP TEAM.  Sign up sheet on the women’s bulletin board.






Instead of carrying a burden alone, consider filling out a blue prayer card (found in each pew) and placing it in one of the red boxes beside each entrance. A prayer team member will pray confidentially about each card during the coming week. Also just talk to any prayer team member (identified by red name badge), who will be happy to pray with you personally after the services.





If you have any pictures of parish events or special times had with our St Francis family past or present you would like to contribute to the website please email to Charles Wick

The San Damiano Cross

(St Francis Cross)



The San Damiano Cross is the cross which St. Francis of Assisi was praying when he is said to have received the commission from the Lord to rebuild the Church. It now hangs in the Basilica of Saint Clare in Assisi, Italy, Franciscans cherish this cross as the symbol of their mission from God.

St. Francis Anglican Parish Prayer List

Please Pray for the concerns weighing on the hearts and minds of members of this congregation.

If you need to add or remove a name from the prayer list contact Sue Comstock at 919-498-9154 or email her at suectrace@gmail.com. See current prayer list on last page of weekly parish bulletin. Names will be removed after three weeks unless you contact Sue to extend the time.



After each Sunday Eucharistic service, prayer will now be available in two forms:

1) Trained members of the prayer team will be on hand to pray for you personally and confidentially for any need.  Simply walk over to any prayer team member (identified by a red badge), and you will be joined by one or more other prayer team members, move to a quiet corner, and be prayed for.


2) Blue prayer request cards have been placed in all pew pockets if you would prefer to submit a request in writing.  Just fill out a card and drop it in either of the two red boxes (one at the back of the church and one on the table beside the door to the fellowship hall).  Prayer team members will pray for written requests during the subsequent week.


Please be assured that all prayer requests are held in strictest confidence.  Never consider a prayer need too small, too trivial…or too big! Prayer team members always begin by listening for God’s direction, and only then do they verbalize the prayers that they sense on God’s heart for you.  Please take advantage of these new opportunities to receive God’s comfort and peace!
