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.

Collect for Sanctity of Life Sunday

Almighty God, who hast created man in thine own image, who hast loved us even before thou didst form us in the womb, Grant us courage fearlessly to bear witness to the sacredness of all human life, especially the life of the weak, the enfeebled, and the unborn, and to make no peace with the culture of death. Bless with wisdom and courage all physicians and nurses, that they may regard every human creature with due reverence. Guide and direct those who make law and public policy, that the rights of all persons may be upheld, most especially the right to life itself. Save thy Church from cowardice and compromise. And finally, we beseech thee, cleanse our world from the evils of abortion, euthanasia, and suicide. All this we ask in the name of our Saviour Jesus Christ, in whom is life and whose life is the light of men. Amen.

Meet the folks who had more Christmas cheer this year, thanks to our parishioners' generous donations!

In 2022, St. Francis sponsored three needy families through Trotter House. You can view their video “Thank You” cards here:
