Book Club

The St. Francis Book Club meets about three to six times per year and every Sunday during Lent following the 10:00 am Sunday service. The books cover a variety of genres, and the discussions are lively and informative. A reading list is in the monthly parish newsletter.  We discuss a book for a given month, and delve into a specific text during the Sundays in Lent. Please join us when you are able. Contact Rev. Mark Lingle (
