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.

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. Here’s a recording of a recent spiritual story asking What’s Love Got To Do With it?:

And here’s a recording of a soulful hymn reflecting our heritage as San Francisco’s Church for Black Episcopalians:

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.
