Outreach Program Spotlight


Samaritan Ministry

Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington was founded by St. Francis and 11 other Episcopal Churches in 1986 to work with people suffering from homelessness and poverty and help them put their lives on track through an innovative Next-Step program.  As part of our ongoing support for Samaritan Ministry’s outstanding work, St. Francis is holding a drive to collect essential items for the homeless and impoverished participants in its programs.

Second Story

Second Story transforms the lives of children, youth and their families by providing safe havens and opportunities for them to grow and thrive. Our programs provide support at critical turning points in their lives.

South Sudan

St. Francis Church supports discrete projects in two different areas of South Sudan. We have a covenant with the Anglican Diocese of Ezo, a remote area lacking basic services, where we help to increase clean water, medicine, education, and nutrition. We also helped establish and provide continuing support to the St. Francis Basic School in Juba, the capital of South Sudan. The school provides education and food to several hundred students.

ABOVE ARE 3 SPOTLIGHTED PROGRAMS FROM OVER 30 SUPPORTED ACTIVITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS

St. Francis Outreach Mission

To identify needs in our community, our area, and the world where our financial commitment and hands-on involvement aid in alleviating human suffering, empower those in need to become self-sufficient and strengthen the love of Christ in both the people we touch and within ourselves.
