Announcements

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.

September 13, 2014, is the date for the second fantastic, awe-inspiring, marvelous Parish Jumble Sale. This year the all-Parish sale will include some take away food and some fun things for kids to do. We will be concentrating on antiques, works of art, collectibles, and upscale household and clothing items. Your donations will be accepted on Tuesdays from 1:30-3:30 at the old Thrift Shop. If you want to help in any way with this project see Ed Splichal, Maryla Salt, Alice Gates, or Kathy Capp. A jumble sale publicity flyer for you to share or post is available in PDF format.

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!

We are seeking Storytellers and Greeters for Godly Play this Fall. Godly Play is based on the Montessori method of learning. Different and much more than just Sunday School, Godly Play encourages children to use their imagination, sense of wonder and connection to their world as they learn about sacred Christian stories. Training and support are provided! Help us nurture our youth and grow our program. For more information or to join our Godly Play Team, please contact Beverly Popek or Shae Brown.
