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.
March 3: Lenten Retreat
8:30am-3:00pm in the Parish Hall
The theme for the retreat will be on Loving with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. Lunch and all materials will be provided, without charge. I hope you plan to attend. Please sign up with Frances so that I have accurate count for lunches. Also let her know if you have any special dietary restrictions. I will do my best to accommodate them.
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.
