Welcome to Holy InnocentsA 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.
Like many of you, we are anxious to be once again in each other’s physical presence. Our physical safety is very important, and we will proceed very cautiously when re-opening our physical church. Please read Jane’s message to the congregation about our re-gathering.
Prayer Requests: If you have prayer requests for our Sunday service, esp. if you are not watching live, fill out this form as many times as needed. For now, you will need to fill it out weekly to make it easier for our on-site team to read. You can find the prayer list here.
Parents of kids under 10! We are sending the Children’s Sermon to you by email each week, and Godly Play is now happening by Zoom as well. to get the link, contact giuliana(at)holyinsf.org
We are organizing small groups that will get together virtually on a weekly basis. We are putting together a resource page: how to get help, where to volunteers, wellness & spiritual resources. If you are interested, contact Fabienne seniorwarden(at)holyinnocents.org
We are putting together a resources page. It is loosely organized by sections, and gives you a start for your own searches. Make sure to double-check all the information. They change quickly, and while we put information from sources we trust, we have not vetted them all.
Pentecost - May 31, 2020
We will not have a service this week at Holy Innocents. Everyone is invited to attend the diocesan service at Grace Cathedral. The service will start at 10:40 a.m. with music offerings from all congregations. The service should appear as soon as it is live. You should not have to enter any access code. Check in early to enjoy a piece by Jane Spencer-Mills and Bill Keck.

Virtual Coffee Hours
We will open the video/audio meeting immediately after the service each Sunday through April (if needed). We’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. BYOCAS – Bring Your Own Coffee and Snacks
NOTE: there will be no coffee hour on Pentecost.
