St. Cyprian’s, San Francisco

We are a community that welcomes people of all colors, orientations, and backgrounds. Our spiritual path is to create a sense of community by doing things together. Our Sunday and Wednesday services are two of the ways we create community. Our Sunday and Wednesday worship services weave together authentic spiritual practices dating from the earliest days of Christianity. On Sundays we weave progressive preaching, thoughtful spiritual practices, and music together to help us bring people together and form a welcoming community.

  • Jazz Mass/Gospel Music Sundays: Once a month we celebrate our Mass with a Jazz & Gospel Music at our Sunday 10 a.m. Mass.
  • Healing Prayers & Anointing: We offer healing prayers and anointing every Sunday at 10 a.m. and Wednesday at 11 a.m. Following our Wednesday Healing Mass, we either share a free light lunch or join in the free Senior Luncheon presented here on Fourth Wednesdays by this church and Episcopal Senior Communities.

For Children & Families: We offer Sunday School during our 10 a.m. Sunday service! Children may go downstairs for class and crafts as we start to read our first lesson and rerun when we are ready to celebrate communion. All are welcome at the altar to receive communion or a blessing. Sunday School runs from the second Sunday of September through the end of the school year.

Our history

We are a landmark congregation for San Francisco’s African American Episcopalians that has changed to reflect changes in our neighborhood. In 1960 our members built and opened this sacred space. They paid off the mortgage through pledges and BBQ dinners and rummage sales and community dinners. Today as we stand on their shoulders, as we offer you a Christian community where all are welcome, where everyone can find their place, where diversity of race and orientation are part of who we are.
