Mission and core values

We are an Episcopal Church located in the Diocese of Western Massachusetts.

We are a worshiping community seeking to live the Baptismal Covenant, which calls us to grow “into the full stature of Christ.” Like our patron, St. Francis of Assisi, our goal is to respond to the needs of the world with compassion and love.

Ultimately, of course, our congregation cannot be described by words on a web page. We are a diverse community on a journey together, a people trying to respond to the love of God made known in Jesus. The best way to learn more about who we are is to come and join us for worship and to join us on that journey.


Wherever you may find yourself on that road, you are welcome at St. Francis.

We seek to be instruments of God’s peace, bearing witness to the love of God in Jesus Christ for all people.

Living into the Baptismal Covenant, we are striving to grow into the full stature of Christ.  We are committed to common prayer, life-long Christian formation, mission to the world, and grateful stewardship as we live out Jesus’ command to love God and our neighbor.
