Exalting the Spirit

Franciscans told us in the parish survey that our music programs are a key strength of our church. This largely is due to the leadership of the program and the commitment and talent of our parishioners. The music program, which has been growing steadily for the past ten years, has two very experienced music directors who lead an adult choir of about 25 Franciscans. In addition to our adult choir, we have two choirs for children: The Joyful Noyz, composed of grade school children, lead the music at the 9:00 AM service and the pre-school Grace Notes choir offers their talent several times a year.

confirmands 2009 Learning and Growing in the Spirit….

From our youngest and most curious to our oldest and wisest, St. Francis offers a weekday program for preschoolers with its Creche Episcopal Preschool, Sunday morning Christian Education classes for young children and teenagers, Adult Forum discussions, and weekday Centering Prayer and Bible Study groups to expand the spirit and inform and nurture our lives.

We invite our children to join our junior choirs and acolyte staff, believing service and formation starts at Baptism.

Franciscans know the spirit of the living Christ resides within each of us—from the newborn to the very elderly. The roots of our affection for one another have grown deep and been nourished by our fellowship activities. Click here for more information on Parish Life.
