and You, my Lord Jesus Christ,
I pray You to enlighten me
and to dispel the darkness of my spirit;
Give me a faith that is without limit,
a hope that is ever unfailing,
and a love that is universal.
Grant, O my God,
that I may really know You
and that I may be guided in all
things according to Your will."
St. Francis of Assisi

Welcome to St. Francis!
We welcome you as you 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 Prayera 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 sometimes
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.
St. Francis is a
parish of the Episcopal Missionary Church.
