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.

Outreach Opportunities


Our goal this year is to feed a minimum of 1000 people, by serving dinner at Open Cathedral during school vacations, and with the Interfaith Winter Shelter.  We have already served 400 people in January.  Here are the next opportunities to help:


Sunday, March 1, 5 p.m.: Interfaith Winter Shelter dinner at Cannon Kip Senior Center, 705 Natoma.  We will cook for 50-70 people.  If you can help on March 1, please contact Rita.

Staying healthy!


We love each other, and we like sharing, but in the last couple of months, we have been inadvertently sharing colds.  We would like to avoid this in the future, and when colds & flu are spreading in the community, let’s take a few precautions to protect ourselves and our friends.  We have compiled a list of dos and don’ts (and why).

Here’s a recap of the precautions specific to church:

  • No hugging or hand shaking at church during cold and flu season
  • At communion, take the bread in your hands
  • Do not dip the bread in the wine
