Our Vision
We aspire to be a growing community, worshiping together, celebrating our diversity and lay ministries,
and offering God's healing love to all people.

Our Mission
To foster spiritual growth and renewal while spreading God's message of love, healing and peace.

Since 1957, St. Francis-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church has sought to heed the call of our patron saint to be "instruments of God's peace." We are an active and friendly parish of 200 families, located in the Historic Sugartown area of beautiful Chester County, Pennsylvania. St. Francis offers its members a place of quiet inspiration, inclusive fellowship, and the comfort of God's peace and presence among us.

We are a group of seekers from diverse backgrounds who come together for strength and renewal, empowering ourselves and each other to go into the world and continue Christ's work through love, justice and peace. We invite you to be part of our growing community of faith.

St. Francis-in-the-Fields is a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania, a member of The Episcopal Church, and part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Our Prayer

The Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.

O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.
