The Anglican Tradition
Saint Francis Anglican Church is orthodox and
continuing in the teaching and fellowship of the apostles and in the
breaking of bread, which was established by Christ as the design for the
life of the Church.
As faithful stewards of the Catholic Faith in the
Anglican tradition, our teaching and practice is based solely on the
Holy Bible as interpreted by the universally accepted
Councils held by the whole Christian Church before any divisions took
place; and the traditional Book of Common Prayer, which demonstrates
both our Catholic Faith and Evangelical witness.
Indeed the best way to understand our faith and practice is to take a
Bible, a copy of the historic Book of Common Prayer, and come and
worship with us. The center of our worship is the Holy Eucharist, also
called Holy Communion, the Mass, the Lord's Supper, and the
Liturgy. It is the only service recorded in the New Testament as having
been given us by Christ himself. You will find that our liturgical
worship involves the whole person—body, mind and spirit—allowing us
to be active participants rather than mere listeners.
Services and Location
celebrate Sunday Mass every Sunday at 9:00 am (except as noted) at the Oregon Latvian Center Chapel,
located at 5500 SW Dosch Road, Portland, Oregon. This is just off the
Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway and the building is in a wooded knoll next to the
Neveh Shalom Synagogue. You can find more details about our location and how to
get there by using the FINDING US selection at the left.
We use the 1940 Hymnal and the 1928 American Book of Common
Prayer augmented by the American Missal.

Prayer for Peace
Lord, make me an instrument of Your
Where there is hatred, Let us 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 seek not
so much 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 and it is in dying
that we are born to Eternal Life. Amen.
- St. Francis of
