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!

For the last few years, a daily Lenten meditation has been written by various parishioners and St. Francisí clergy, and made available on the website. This year will be similar, except that on January 11th, the Rector will work with those gathered in Coffee Hour to come up with a word for each day in Lent (one example: abide). Then, parishioners who are interested in writing a meditation will sign up for a word (or more than one word) that they would like to muse about.
