The mission of St. Francis Episcopal Church is to make God known through Worship and Service to others as a loving community.
The Sunday liturgy is Holy Eucharist Rite II. The Rite II liturgy uses a portion of the Book of Common Prayer containing worship services which use contemporary language. The word "Eucharist" is used to refer to what many other protestant denominations call "Communion."
St. Francis' Nursery is led by dedicated staff and parishioners who have been trained in Safeguarding God's Children. Silent pagers are available to alert parents if their presence is needed in the nursery.
