Day of Pentecost

Wear RED today – embody the flame of Pentecost! Why is Pentecost important? Because it is the beginning of the Christian Church and reminds us how Jesus’ promise that God would send the Holy Spirit was fulfilled.

LA Pride – Sunday June 11, 11am – 2pm!

Gather with your friends in The Episcopal Diocese of LA to march in the historic LA Pride Parade in Hollywood.

Join us as we gather with former Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori to stand up to injustice, model God’s unconditional love for all people and celebrate the beautiful diversity that makes the LGBTQIA+ community so essential and vital to the Episcopal experience.

We will be gathering in our staging area at 10AM. Our contingent will include a flatbed truck with a hydraulic lift to accommodate our friends with mobility challenges.

Please note that due to parade regulations you will not be able to join the contingent along the parade route and we will need to check in all parade marchers in advance of stepping off.

Email to receive parade details including, staging location, parking and other guidelines.

This work is as critical as it has always been, and we look forward to showing up on parade day to do the work of proclaiming God’s inclusive love for absolutely everyone!!

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. Jason Shelby.


Nursery, & Sunday School

Bring your children to Sunday School for our wonderful Montessori-based, Godly Play curriculum.
Godly Play makes meaning through story, wonder, and play. Nurturing spiritual lives by honoring the centrality, competency, and capacity of children. You and your children will be blessed by these teachings.

History of St. Francis
St. Francis church has a long history on the Peninsula.

In 1949, Bishop Bloy gave his blessing for the establishment of a “mission” church on the Peninsula, and the Chapel was completed and dedicated in July, 1952.

Watch this space as we make more of our history available online.
