SFA parish mission Feb. 11-13
WICHITA – St. Francis of Assisi Parish is hosting a three-evening mission from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, Feb. 11-13, in the church.

Here are the topics Tooke will present:
• Feb. 11: “A Worthy Adventure” Heading into the desert takes courage and a willingness to explore. The mission will begin with an articulation of the invitation to a spiritual life in Christ and the need for the Lenten journey in our busy lives.
• Feb. 12: “A Voice Crying Out” If a person is willing to listen and walk with Christ, what is next? The recognition that we depend on God’s mercy and grace as we prepare for his profound mission for us.
• Feb. 13: “And Now We Run” The Lord has called me by name and the mission is clear…we look to practical measures of spiritual development necessary for our complete embrace of the Good News that is the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the Easter season.
