Join us to celebrate Holy Week and Easter
Holy Week at Saint Francis includes a variety of services in which we meditate on Jesus’ passion, death and resurrection, those great events which have brought us life and salvation. Holy Week commemorates the passion and suffering of Jesus, and Easter is an uplifting and glorious celebration of his resurrection.
We welcome you and your family, as well as any guests you have visiting for Easter. Registrations and masks are required for in-person worshippers. CLICK HERE to register. We are grateful you are celebrating with us, and hope you will come again soon.
From our family to yours, Happy Easter
Easter Sunday 7:30am indoor, 9am indoor & livestream, 11am Drive In
We celebrate a Festal Eucharist at 7:30am (In church), 9am (In church & live stream) and 11am (Parking Lot Drive-In Service). Reservations and masks are required for in-person worshippers. This triumphant service is powerful and beautiful, celebrating the resurrection of our Lord. It is one of our most popular services of the year, and the church is often full. We suggest you register early to ensure a seat. Overflow seating will be available in other rooms around the church. You may also hear the service from your car in the parking lot (tune your radio to FM 88.3).
An Easter Egg Hunt is held on the field behind Saint Francis Hall immediately after the 9am service. All children 12 and under are invited to join the fun! Please bring a basket to collect your eggs (hunt will be canceled if it is raining). Masks and social distance are required.
