Three of her organ albums have received critical acclaim in The American Organist magazine. Her most recent releases include a 2013 CD of her organ compositions entitled Sharing the Journey, recorded at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles and in December 2016, her new WIDOR chez Widor album, featuring Symphonies 4,5,6 and 7 on Widor’s hometown Cavaillé-Coll organ at St. François-de-Sales in Lyon, France. For 22 years she was an opthalmic surgeon at Kaiser in Redwood City.
Village House day shelter returns
St. Francis is once again hosting a daytime shelter for women experiencing homelessness Sundays through Wednesdays. Given the colder weather, we will host for a longer day, from 12:30 to 6 p.m. on Sundays and 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. Longer days mean we’ll need plenty of volunteers! Please sign up for a volunteer shift or to drop off a lunch. Note that Sunday afternoons and after school hours are available for those with busy schedules! We are proud to continue our partnership with Village House: An Interfaith Shelter of Hope.

Heaven, Hell, Universal Salvation
Are you saved or are you lost? Are you an innie or an outie? Did Jesus teach this? Did the first Christians believe it? Do you have to? Who said? Who thought this up? We will look at the evidence that the early church believed Jesus died to save everyone. Everyone. Then we'll look at how this changed over time.
