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

All worship services have been suspended

Out of concern for the health and safety of our parishioners and guests, and because the civil authorities have prohibited most public gatherings, all services have been discontinued until further notice. Please bear with us as we attempt to work through these difficult times, and please continue to pray that God will intervene and mitigate the devastating effects of the COVID-19 virus.

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.
