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.
Introducing our new Vicar
Fr. Tom Jackson is the new Vicar of St. Cyprian’s!
Our Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Marc H. Andrus, appointed Fr. Tom at the recommendation of our governing board or Bishop;\’s Committee. Fr. Tom had served as the Interim Vicar since October, 2013. More on Fr. Tom. At 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 6, 2016, Bishop Andrus will lead a special service celebrating Fr. Tom and St. Cyprian’s new ministry in our sanctuary. A celebration and reception will follow in our Community Hall.
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. On Sundays at 10:10 a.m. we’re usually here for about 70 minutes, sing some songs together, open up the bible to see what it means to us today and pray together. We’d also love to stay connected with you this week. The easiest way to do that is by following us on social media. You’re welcome to take out your phones right now and follow us on Facebook or Twitter. We also love hearing from you and this is great way to keep up the conversation.
Each Sunday we gather at 9 a.m. for Spirit Village Mass, a spiritual gathering of children and their families and at 10:10 a.m. for our Mass featuring progressive theology, soulful music, ancient rites, & Eucharist.
Please join us for our weekly healing mass every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. in the chapel. We will pray with you, anoint you and share communion with you. Our sacred text and stories often focus on the life of a holy woman or man who has been recognized by the Episcopal Church for their spiritual contribution to our world. This is an intimate time of community building and faith renewal.
