Simple supper; small group discussion following, using (the Presiding Bishop) Michael Curry’s call to examine the Way of Jesus as the Way of Love. Beginning March 13 at St Jude in Wantagh; March 20 at St Francis; March 27 at St Jude; April 3 at St Francis; April 10 at St Jude. Location of St Jude here.
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.
