Welcome to Holy Innocents

A place where all are welcome

Holy Innocents Episcopal Church is located between Noe Valley and the Mission in San Francisco. We are a diverse, inclusive community of worshipers who believe in openness to new ideas and ways of worship, yet we are deeply grounded in the traditions of the Episcopal Church and the worldwide Anglican Communion.

No matter what tradition you follow, wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome at Holy Innocents.  The sanctuary is wheelchair-accessible.
