Welcome to St. John's in the Mission.

Located around the corner from the busy Mission-16th Street-Valencia corridors in San Francisco's north Mission District, St. John's has been described by many as an oasis not only for the tranquility of our garden amidst the surrounding bustling streets, or the warm golden light that fills our soaring nave on a sunny day, but because so many have found St. John's to be a place of loving peace, healing, and renewal in an often all-too-broken world.

Wednesday Forums

Report on Human Rights Work by Cristosal: We learned about Human Rights Work by Cristosal in Central America and enjoyed a pupusa supper! Cristosal’s Global School of Human Rights brings people together who make a lasting impact on each other and their communities. After a 2-year pandemic hiatus and in September 2022, a group of us (Rev. Claire Ranna, Rev. Lisa Fortuna and Michelle Porche, plus a colleague from UCSF) went to participate in a Global School in Guatemala focused on LGBTQ Human Rights.

St. Francis Feast Day Procession

Thanks to all creatures great and small who came to the service, received a blessing, and joined in the procession.

On Sun 22 Jan at 4pm, Mark Winges and Tina Harrington will present a program for voice and organ spanning nine centuries of music, ranging from Hildegard of Bingen’s O ignee Spiritus to the premiere of Mark’s Three Sacred Songs. The
concert also features pieces by Schütz, Vivaldi, Buxtehude, Bach, and less familiar works by Leo Sowerby and Paul Bonneau.

It is not often that we are fortunate enough to hear a composer premiere their own work, so come join us at St. John’s for this festive 1-hour recital, followed by wine and cheese. Free will offering of $15 suggested, however all are welcome regardless of ability to donate.
