St. Francis of Assisi, Novato

St. Francis is nestled beneath a breathtaking canopy of oaks in downtown Novato on 5th Street just south of Grant Avenue.

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. On Sunday mornings we offer a variety of worship services that draw on the ancient and modern practices of the Episcopal Church. We look forward to welcoming you in person.




The first Sunday of the month St. Francis gathers as one body in Christ to celebrate Holy Eucharist at 9:30 am.

The rest of the month we invite you to attend:

Holy Eucharist with Contemporary Music - 9 am

Coffee Hour and education for all - 10 am

Holy Eucharist with Organ and Choir - 11 am
