What I Love about St. Francis

St. Francis in the garden

The statue of St. Francis, rather hidden amidst the hydrangeas, is a beautiful reminder of the gift of creation that our patron saint celebrated.

Welcome to the web site for St. Francis' Episcopal Church in San Francisco. We invite you to join us for Sunday worship at 8:00a Eucharist (without music) and 10:00a Eucharist with hymns and organ (during the summer). Visitors are always welcome, and we make a special effort to make your visit with us enjoyable.

The St. Francis Office is open Monday through Friday. Office hours are from 10-12 and 1-5, Monday through Thursday, and 10-12 and 1-3 on Friday.

Every second Wednesday of the month, a handful of us gather at Laguna Honda Hospital to celebrate the Eucharist with some of the residents. Our volunteers go onto the various patients' floors to bring residents down for the service, and afterwards, return them to their rooms. We would love to have a few more volunteers to help with this beautiful ministry. Ed Splichal, Bill and Fran Rounds, Anita Jackson, Mary Beth Paul, Christina Stephen, and Jim French are our active volunteers. If you would like to know more about this ministry, ask one of the volunteers, or speak with the Rector. We welcome your questions!

The Summer "What I Love About St. Francis'" Photo Project. We are always in need of more photos for the website and the Facebook page. And we are always curious about what it is that you especially love about this place. So, we decided to intertwine the two into a summer photo project. We invite you to get out your smart phones and start snapping photos of the things you love about St. Francisí. Then send them to us (which means to the Rector, the Administrator, to Mark Lieu the webmaster, or David Kriegh, who administrates the Facebook page). We have a Dropbox account, as well, so if you'd rather load your photos there, just let us know, and we will help facilitate that.

We are working on a new St. Francisí Cookbook. The last one was published in the mid-70ís. Please send us your favorite recipes, and if possible, include a few lines about why you have included the particular recipes. You may send your recipes to either Sallie Crosby Hess or our parish office (administrator@stfrancisepiscopal.org).
