St. Francis has been serving the Temple community since 1966. Our community, worship, outreach, and education ministries are designed for people in any stage of their spiritual journey. No matter your religious background or tradition, you are welcome in this place.
The mission of St. Francis Episcopal Church is to love, worship and serve Christ making him known in our daily lives.
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.
St. Francis Preschool

The school's purpose is to provide an educational environment that encourages children to grow socially, emotionally, physically, cognitively and spiritually into responsible, caring adults.
