This Week at Holy Family

MISSION OUTPOST As we consider how to use our gifts to meet the needs of the Santa Fe community, we are looking for opportunities to serve. A mission outpost, as highlighted in our preliminary strategic plan, is a center from which mission work is carried out. Do you know of a project or group in the community who could use some help? We are looking for ways to give our time, not just collect donations. Contact Pastor Corinne or bring your ideas to our strategic plan kickoff next Sunday.  To learn more about the Mission Outpost Model for Church, check out this 2-minute video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/ORGKjU4-FCU.

STRATEGIC PLAN KICK-OFF February 10, everyone is invited to lunch at Maria’s New Mexican Kitchen, 555 W. Cordova Rd. After worship, we will meet briefly for discussion and prayer in the sanctuary, then head to the restaurant for a celebratory lunch. Sign up in the front hallway to attend. There are four lunch options: Blue Corn Enchiladas, New Mexican Taco Plate, Burrito Grande, Chile Relleno. Join us as we begin this exciting new journey for Holy Family!

THURSDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY We have a new meeting place, the food court at Santa Fe Place Mall. We gather around 5:30 p.m. and end by 7 p.m. Bring your bible.

HEALING SUNDAY FEBRUARY 3 Healing of spirit, mind and body is offered the first Sunday of each month after worship. Please remain in the sanctuary after the dismissal and allow enough space between you and the person in front of you.

EC101 Interested in learning more about the Episcopal Church? Why do we do what we do? We are about to begin a six-session class entitled Episcopal Church 101. This is for anyone new to the church, who needs a refresher or who is interested in Confirmation, Reception or Reaffirmation. Sign up in the front hallway or send an email to holyfamilysantafe@gmail.com. We are also deciding on a meeting day and time. Please check next to your name Saturday mornings, Sunday afternoons or evenings. Classes will begin in March and end by June. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn and grow together.  All are welcome!
