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."

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.
We have moved!
As of Sunday, May 5th, 2013, worship services are now held at our
temporary location, 10435 Burnet Road, Suite 125, Austin, TX 78758. Unless
otherwise noted, all parish activities are held there, where we have ample
space and plentiful parking. Join us!
Upcoming Worship Services
The Anglican Rosary: Tuesdays at noon. This is a method of praying using beads that can
be very meaningful. Beads are provided as is the order used to pray.
This is open to anyone interested in attending.
Evening Prayer: Thursdays at 7 p.m. During this simple but beautiful
service, the prayers and lessons are said and the canticles are sung without
accompaniment. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The service will be
held at 3401 Oak Creek Drive this week. Please do not come to the
Burnet Road location.
Note that Evening Prayer will not be held on Christmas Day.
You are cordially invited to join us in celebrating the Nativity of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
Christmas Eve, Wednesday, December 24, at 8:00 PM, there will be
a traditional service of lessons and carols, leading into the festive
Christmas Day, Thursday, December 25, at 10:00 AM, the traditional
Christmas Day Eucharist, the Christ-Mass.
The time is always right to offer praise and thanks to God for His
innumerable gifts and mercies to us, but the Church, in her ancient
wisdom, has long regarded the feast of the Lord's Incarnation as a day
of especial significance, as it commemorates God's most precious gift of
His only begotten Son to be our Savior.
Sunday school classes are underway for the 2014-15 school year. Each
Sunday at 9:30 AM, 5th graders and up meet with Doug Cooper to discuss the
topics of the Explore God series. The younger class will begin with a few
minutes of worship at the 9:30 service, then return to the classroom to learn
the stories from the One Room Sunday School curriculum with Missy Bernard.
All St. Francis youth and friends are warmly welcomed.
St. Francis has an active prayer group. If you would like to place a name on the list, please use the prayer intention box on the south side of the church to submit your request.
Austin City Prayer Walk: The monthly prayer walk is scheduled for the first Saturday of each month. Join us at 9AM in the fellowship area for opening prayer and coffee. Wear comfortable clothing/shoes and come with a heart to pray for the needs of our Austin community.
Mothers' Prayer Group: The 3rd Thursday of the month at 12:00 noon. Join this group of mothers as they pray for a solid hour of prayers of adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication.
