Holy Hikes and Baykeeper Cleanup Mass
10:00 AM to 1:30 AM
On Saturday, September 30, Holy Hikes and San Francisco Baykeeper will host a “Bay Clean-up Mass” at Marin Audobon Society's Tiscornia marsh land near Pickleweed Park, San Rafael. A substantial amount of trash is on the shoreline, and several endangered species live in the marsh. Our cleanup will do a lot of good here! This one-day event is part of an ongoing relationship between Holy Hikes, a Christian hiking group, and San Francisco Baykeeper, a nonprofit that has been working to protect the San Francisco Bay from pollution. All are welcome to join this unique opportunity to clean the Bay and celebrate a spirituality that recognizes interdependency with the land and waters. The event will include a celebration of the Holy Eucharist woven into a clean-up of the marshes.

Sejal Choksi-Chugh, Executive Director and the designated ‘Baykeeper’, comments, “Baykeeper is excited about this new partnership with Holy Hikes to help grow the diverse ecosystem of volunteers and supporters that protect our beautiful San Francisco Bay. Together, we will continue to stand up to the biggest polluters and tackle the greatest threats to the Bay’s health.”

  • Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church in downtown Novato.
  • Come and see!
  • All are welcome!
  • Worship in the beauty of holiness.

Welcome to St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church, a theologically progressive and inclusive Christ-centered 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. Our Sunday morning service draws 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 and blessings, The Rev. Vanessa Stickler Glass, Rector
