Holy Hikes and Baykeeper Cleanup Mass
10:00 AM to 1:30 AM
On Saturday, September 30, Holy Hikes and San Francisco Baykeeper will host a “Bay Clean-up Mass” at Marin Audobon Society's Tiscornia marsh land near Pickleweed Park, San Rafael. A substantial amount of trash is on the shoreline, and several endangered species live in the marsh. Our cleanup will do a lot of good here! This one-day event is part of an ongoing relationship between Holy Hikes, a Christian hiking group, and San Francisco Baykeeper, a nonprofit that has been working to protect the San Francisco Bay from pollution. All are welcome to join this unique opportunity to clean the Bay and celebrate a spirituality that recognizes interdependency with the land and waters. The event will include a celebration of the Holy Eucharist woven into a clean-up of the marshes.

Sejal Choksi-Chugh, Executive Director and the designated ‘Baykeeper’, comments, “Baykeeper is excited about this new partnership with Holy Hikes to help grow the diverse ecosystem of volunteers and supporters that protect our beautiful San Francisco Bay. Together, we will continue to stand up to the biggest polluters and tackle the greatest threats to the Bay’s health.”

Sunday School

The 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month children are invited to attend Sunday School. At St. Francis we offer Godly Play, a Montessori inspired curriculum that teaches children the art of using Christian language through parable, sacred story, silence and liturgical action. Godly Play helps children become more fully aware of the mystery of God’s presence in their lives. Children join their parents at the beginning of the 10:00 am service. After the collect, children follow their teacher to the Godly Play classroom where they will hear a story, be invited into a time of wonder, and encouraged to respond to the story through art. Children rejoin their families in the church for communion.

Race and Culture Series
