Traditional, sacramental Anglican worship, using the 1928 Book of Common Prayer


Beginning Sunday, May 10. St. Francis will be open for services on a limited basis. There will be a 9:30 service of Holy Communion only. Please wear a face covering in the building. Those who are 65 or older and those with other conditions that may be exacerbated by the virus are urged to stay home and participate in the service via live stream on Facebook or view the video to be posted on this page after the service. We look forward to the day when we are able to return to our normal schedule. There will be no service at 11:00 this Sunday.

This resembles the fat, Easter Sunday bulletins of recent years.

You can print one of these and have your own copy if you plan to view the service online.

Welcome to St. Francis!

We welcome you to join us in a warm and friendly setting for true, Christ-centered worship. We uphold the ancient faith of the Church in the Anglican tradition, offering traditional Christian values based on the Holy Word of God, and are faithful witnesses to the person of Jesus in the Austin community.
 
St. Francis' liturgical standard is the 1928 Book of Common Prayer—a document which is orthodox in its expression of the Christian faith based on prayers that have been part of catholic worship for 2000 years.
 
In a world where biblical values seem to change with each new interpretation, St. Francis Anglican Church stands for biblical truth which does not change with each passing generation. If you are concerned about shifting social mores, want to be the Christian that God wants you to be and need guidance on that often difficult path, and want to be challenged each week to work toward that goal, we hope that you will visit and experience our worship and values first hand.
