On Sunday, February 27 at 3 PM at St. Francis Lutheran Church, 152 Church Street, San Francisco, CA 94114 the Sierra Pacific Synod of the ELCA and St. Francis Lutheran Church invite you to The Festival of Reconciliation and Restoration, with the Rite of Reception, for St. Francis Lutheran Church to be restored as a congregation of the synod and of the ELCA. Bishop Mark Holmerud, presiding.
Following the service there will be a GALA event starting at 6 PM to celebrate this historic occasion.
In 1990 St. Francis took the courageous step of calling Ruth Frost and Phyllis Zillhart as their new pastors. This action led to a trial, and in 1995, the removal of the congregation from roster of congregations of the synod and of the ELCA.
Formal invitations will be mailed out to members and friends of St. Francis. If you would like to join us just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward to you an invitation.
