We have exciting news!

St. Francis has a New Rector!

Dear St. Francis Family,
It has been said that it “takes a village” to raise a child. In our case it “takes a parish” to call a rector. We have been actively seeking for what feels like a long time and that journey has finally come to a wonderful end.

Our new rector is The Reverend Jason Shelby.

We expect to welcome the Shelby Family February 1, 2023.
To read more about Rev. Jason click here for a letter from our Senior Warden – Holly Henebry Valiquette.

Worship Bulletins

In Need of Prayer?

St. Francis has a strong prayer ministry. During our Sunday services we read aloud the names of those who are sick or in any kind of acute or serious trouble.
In addition, a team of members of the congregation pray daily and confidentially for any who request help.

If you have a request, please contact The Rev. Jerry Sather.


Nursery, & Sunday School

Summer Sunday School Begins June 19th. For more details contact Kristina Pelá
