We welcome people of all backgrounds and ages to join us in our spiritual journey toward a more intimate relationship with God.
In worship, we celebrate God with us through water, bread and wine. With baptism, we are united with God. The Episcopal Church believes through baptism in any Christian denomination, we become brothers and sisters in Christ. Jesus shared bread and wine with his first followers and is with us today in this family meal we call Holy Communion. Through it we receive forgiveness of sins, a strengthening of our union with Christ and support each other in our spiritual journeys. Any baptized person is welcome to share with us in this Christian feast.
Wednesday Worship and Adult Study Program
On Wednesdays at St. Francis we gather for a service of spoken Evening Prayer with Eucharist at 6:30 p.m. We pray, listen to a reflection about holy women and holy men of faith whose witness embodied the work and mission of Christ. We share the Eucharist together, remembering that, at Christ’s table, we are all welcome, all loved, and all united as children of God. After the service we gather in St. Clare’s where we spend time in Christian Formation. Topics change with the seasons of the church year. Drop-ins are always welcome.
“Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
