“It is finished ….”
As we walk the oath from Good Friday to Easter joy, we pause to reflect on the human side of this story of Jesus. “Ah holy Jesus, who hast thou offended, that man to judge thee in hate pretended,” asks the hymn. Let us ponder this as we wait for Easter’s arrival.
In the center of the city, on the edge of the neighborhood: “a San Francisco kind of Jesus joint.” St Cyprian’s is a congregation emboldened by the opportunity to engage with our energized urban neighborhood to create a community where everyone matters.
Saint Cyprian’s Episcopal Church has been a member of the San Francisco community for 91 years. We are a small but passionate group of worshipers from many walks of life. The people of St. Cyprian’s are diverse, creative, caring and committed to honoring the dignity of every person. While valuing our unique history we are together looking forward to the gifts that the future has to offer. Come experience and explore with us what the Spirit is doing as we together reach out, grow and connect with our neighborhood in new and positive ways.
Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. we gather in the chapel gather for Anointing for Healing & Holy Eucharist. There before the stain glass window reminding us of Jesus praying in the garden at Gethsemane.
