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.

Getting together while physically separated

For the forseeable future, Jane will be joined by  a small group of non-vulnerable folks on Sunday mornings at 10 am to broadcast a Facebook Live Stream of the service here.  Click here for the Holy Innocents Facebook page.   The bulletin and readings will be posted below on Fridays.  The link to the video for later viewing will be posted around noon on Sundays. We have found that it is best to watch the Facebook LiveStream on Chrome and Firefox, rather than Safari. Parents of kids under 10!  We are sending the Children’s Sermon to you by email each week.  If you are not on that list and want to be, contact giuliana(at)holyinsf.org We are organizing small groups that will get together virtually on a weekly basis.  See the offerings and sign up here. We are putting together a resource page: how to get help, where to volunteers, wellness & spiritual resources.  If you want to add a link, contact Fabienne seniorwarden(at)holyinnocents.org Resources Page

Virtual Coffee Hours

Seth B. will open the video/audio meeting after the service or 10:30am (whichever is later) each Sunday through April (if needed). He’ll leave it open until 12pm each Sunday. Sometimes just seeing a video face of a few people might be helpful in sustaining our community. It’s hard for everyone to talk at once and what not, but well, it’s something to try.
