Welcome To St Francis’ Episcopal Church

We are a thinking, welcoming people worshiping God through a traditional liturgy that connects us back to centuries of Christian practice. Looking forwards and back, St. Francis’ provides the best of both worlds. Everyone is welcome at God’s table: no application form required.

Children and Youth Programs

Our Godly Play group has returned from its summer hiatus and is meeting at 10 am on Sundays in the courtyard classroom.  For ages K-5th grade, this gathering uses a Montessori-style method to bring the biblical stories to life.  A new Tween and Teen Youth Group is also meeting at the same time in the Guild Hall for games, food, and discussions about real-life stuff.  This group will also learn about the Bible and how its principles affect our lives.  Topics include parents, social media, friendships, Jesus, trusting God, and dealing with doubt, fear, and stress.  Contact the office if you have questions.

One Service at 9am on September 24th

Many of us will be at the Parish Retreat on the weekend of September 23rd and 24th.  Don’t forget the special schedule for services in San Francisco that Sunday morning.

We celebrate St. Francis’ Feast Day with a blessing of the animals during both the 8am and 10am services.  During Coffee Hour after the 10 am service, we will also have an Outreach Fair to celebrate the various ministries we are involved in as a parish, as well as the additional ministries that people are connected to beyond the parish.

At Home with Growing Older, an Aging 360 Community Workshop in conjunction with the St. Francis’ Healthy Aging Group. Can my home grow older with me?  Yes, most homes can adapt to personal needs as one ages.  Even small adjustments can have a profound impact on helping a person live longer term in their home safely, healthily, and comfortably.

 Our Beautiful Floors Have Been Refinished!

We met in the Parish Hall during the refinishing and drying process. On August 13th, we used the liturgy of Hippolytus, from the 3rd century.  Since early church worship happened in more house-like settings, being in the Parish Hall lent itself to using the earliest of all of the eucharistic liturgies.  Parishioners pitched in to help with the variety of tasks which needed doing before and after the refinishing.

 

Spiritual but not religious? Come see what you are missing. We look forward to welcoming you!

We choose to follow Jesus and his teachings. We embrace community and action, informed by the life of St. Francis.
