Listen,Heal & Transform.

We are an Episcopal community of faith on the South Shore of Nassau County, welcoming all. 

Visit us for Sunday Eucharist @9:30am


We are a Christian community of faith, forged by the love and friendship of two Episcopal churches who decided to merge in 2013, with our Bishop's blessing and encouragement.  We offer a rich liturgical tradition, welcoming space for people of all ages regardless of where they are on their journey of faith, and a wonderful setting to explore spirituality through the environment and organic gardening.  

Please know you are welcome here, and welcome to contact us with any questions about St. Francis Episcopal Church, the Christian faith, or environmental stewardship.


Our current season is the Time after the Epiphany. Also referred to as ‘ordinary time’ — anything but ordinary, however, as the light comes more fully among us daily. Our texts and study in this season remind us that God’s justice, peace, and love are being revealed in the person of Jesus… today. And revealed in us and among us, in our seeking and forming the beloved community God calls us into. We look for the ways in which the divine reveals itself among us — in the person of Jesus, in the created things of this world made and blessed by God and charged with flashes of divine presence, and in the healing of all things in the fullness of God’s time. Seek the light! God’s epiphanies abound, made manifest in the world, teaching us to ‘…see with the eyes of our hearts enlightened,’ as the Apostle Paul writes: the wholeness of God (which is what ‘salvation’ means) breaking in and among our lives, constantly.

Come help at the Garden at St Francis! Feed our hungry neighbors, and help heal God’s most vulnerable creature, the Earth. Currently, we are helping the fields find their rest for the winter, taking out plants and gleaning the garden for a few last harvests to share with our local partner food pantries and community meals. Come hang out - most Tuesday and Wednesday mornings - and walk the Labyrinth when you're done. Contact us via

Think about volunteering a couple hours of your time this summer in the Garden. All are welcome — and needed!

Faith, Ecology & Community.


We are called to a life of faith, hope & love so that people may come to know God through our lives and actions.

The connection of soil and spirit and the reverence for God's earth serves as an outreach ministry to bring healthy and nutritious food to those in need.

We believe there is room for everyone and a place for all within this community of faith.

Come worship with us.


"Our ministry is about growing in every way."
