The garden is ready to grow!


It was a very productive weekend - 14 installed garden beds. These are the beds we had applications for. The gardeners will start to set out their plants this coming weekend. Be sure to stop by and see how our garden grows.


We will begin taking applications for the remaining plots in December. In total we will have 43 beds so yours is just waiting for you.

Bunnies and Beetles and Snakes
Oh MY!

Mo Lyn got her wish of many years. She blessed  a snake at this year's Blessing of the Animals, held in the St Francis Prayer Garden last Saturday. .And not just any snake...it was a ball python belonging to Alex Moran. The snake's name is Serenity and she really is quite friendly. Word has it that Mo. Lyn and Serenity were heard speaking in Parseltongue. She also blessed a pet beetle, a bunny, a beautiful white cat and a good number of dogs all of whom behaved themselves exceedingly well.  St. Francis would have loved it!
 


A Note From Lazarus!
Recently we had an amazing miracle in the congregation, as Jeff McDaneld went from death's door to out the door (and home) in three days. After going through surgery for appendicitis, he was in septic shock, unable to breathe on his own, unconscious and in crictical, unstable condition. After the saints gathered to pray for him he made a miraculous recovery which the doctors are still scratching their heads about. Here is a message from Jeff.
 

I wanted to thank everybody for their support while I was in the hospital and since my discharge from the hospital.  Even in my sedated state I felt the love and sensed something extra had happened. I knew that I would come out of this intact. Patty brought in a picture of some Emmanuelites that gathered on Thursday to pray for Patty and me. This confirmed a feeling I had of this support. Patty and I will always remember and have great gratitude.
