Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, a theologically progressive and inclusive community of faith.

St. Francis is known for its welcome and hospitality of the young, old, and the young at heart. We are a community of compassion and acceptance with a commitment to exploring and deepening our faith. Inspired by our patron saint, Francis, we have a hunger for justice and peace in the world. St. Clare's, our outdoor chapel, is always open for prayer and meditation.

If you prefer walking meditation our outdoor labyrinth is the place to still your soul. On Sunday mornings we offer a variety of worship services that draw on the ancient and modern practices of the Episcopal Church. We look forward to welcoming you in person.

St. Francis, an Episcopal Church in the Diocese of California, is nestled beneath a breathtaking canopy of oaks in downtown Novato on 5th Street just south of Grant Avenue.

Peace be with you! The Rev. Vanessa Stickler Glass, Rector
