New for Spring!
Introduction to the Bible
What better way to respond to the love of God in the Easter Season than to learn how to delve more deeply into the Word? Facilitated by Rich Zemonek, this course will help you be comfortable with finding your way around the Bible, develop a better understanding of the themes and writing styles of the Bible, and gain clear insights about the Church’s use and interpretation of the Bible. This course is for newcomers and experienced Bible students alike!
This study has 7 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 6 lessons. The registration fee includes a Study Guide by Catherine Upchurch and a commentary, “Introduction to the Bible, A Catholic Guide to Studying Scripture,” by Stephen J. Binz (Liturgical Press), and any other course materials.
Your facilitator: Rich Zemonek is a Diocese of Raleigh Certified Master Catechist and a co-founder of the Assisi Scripture Study program here at St. Francis. He is looking forward to help you explore the bible and discover new and different ways for “practical” application of the scripture in your daily life!

In Search of the Simple Life: A Retreat for Women
Registration closed on March 6th
Friday, March 22- Sunday, March 24, 2019
St. Francis Springs Prayer Center in Stoneville, NC
Hosted by St. Francis of Assisi Formation Ministries
Join other women of our parish for this weekend of prayer and reflection focused on simplicity and “tidying up” our spiritual lives. Explore what Jesus means in Matthew’s Gospel when he calls us to take his yoke upon our shoulders, to learn from him, and to find rest in him (Mt 11: 28-30). In addition, there will be plenty of time to wander the wooded trails, pray the brookside Stations of the Cross, spend time in quiet meditation in the outdoor chapel, or traverse the winding pathway of the labyrinth. This is a great opportunity for Lenten reflection. Space is limited, especially for single rooms, so register soon!
Registration Deadline: Friday, March 6, 2019
Cost: $210 Double/Triple Room (attached bath)/$270 Single Room (attached bath)/$310 Hermitage (single occupancy cottage)/$190 Small Single Room (pull-out bed, detached bath).
