St. Francis Saturday Night

St. Francis Saturday Night is a worship option that is a simple and meditative worship experience with Eucharist, prayers, readings and instrumental music. The 5 p.m. service is a time for reflection and a sense of peace. The 30-minute format is geared to those with busy schedules, and it is popular among families who appreciate an alternative to the Sunday schedule.

Sunday Worship

Worship with Eucharist takes place Sundays at 8 a.m. at the Historic Church (503 Old Long Ridge Road) and 10 a.m. at the Church (2810 Long Ridge Road). These services involve the richness of the Episcopal liturgical tradition, while doing so in a flexible and engaging way. The Adult Choir participates in the service at 10 a.m. from September through May. Worship at St. Francis provides opportunity for contemplative reflection and spiritual growth.

Morning Prayer

There is a morning prayer service every Tuesday at 9 a.m. (September through May) at the Historic Church (503 Old Long Ridge Road). The 20-minute service provides a spiritual start to a day filled with prayer, scriptural readings, contemporary reflections and silence for your own meditation.

Service For Pets And Their People

This signature service of St. Francis, honoring the patron saint of animals, takes place on the third Sunday of each month at 4 p.m. in the Church (2810 Long Ridge Road). The service is a shortened Eucharist and liturgy where pets, who are often present, get a special blessing. This is a casual and 30-minute service.

Compline

This brief meditative prayer service is held the first Sunday of each month at 5 p.m., in the Historic Church (503 Old Long Ridge Road). Compline provides the opportunity to experience silence, reflection, prayer and instrumental music in a simple, yet classic New England worship space.
