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.

Happening Soon at St. Francis’ Episcopal

The Western Roundup and Rockathon is coming soon on Saturday, September 16th and you won’t want to miss it! Are you ready to be a rocker/line dancer?  Click here for information on how to sign up sponsors, or see Carol Thollander during coffee hour for a printed form.  Want to sponsor a rocker or line dancer but not sure whom to sponsor?  Consider sponsoring our “Rockin’ Rector”!

Thursday, August 10th at 7pm in the Parish Hall

Solo piano concert by Roger Wiesmeyer.  Roger is the principal English horn player for the Nashville Symphony and, according to our organist, an even better pianist!  Join us for Brahms, Bach, Bartok, and Mozart in the Parish Hall.

Roger is a delightful, funny, informative person – he makes the music come alive with his excellent musicality. His introductions on the history of each piece and his suggestions about how to listen and relate to the music are interesting and helpful. So join us for Brahms, Bach, Bartok, and Mozart on Thursday Aug 10th  at 7pm in the Parish Hall. (Bio and full program here.)

We’ll be collecting a free-will donation (give what you wish, if you wish) half of which will go to our own St Francis’ music fund and half to the Episcopal Impact Fund, which supports many wonderful groups working to reduce poverty in the Bay Area. Excellent music, excellent causes and a guaranteed fun time. So do come!

Sundays, August 13th and 20th

Our church floors, sadly in need of attention, will be refinished starting August 8th.  We will have church services in the Parish Hall on August 13th and 20th.  Join us for that adventure!

Thursdays, October 5th, 12th, and 19th, 10am-noon, Guild Hall

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. Leaders include an architect, industrial designer, and a social worker. Contact the office by August 13th to sign up.  Workshop is free.
