St Francis Episcopal Church, founded as a mission of the Diocese of Washington in 1955, is located in the heart of the village of Potomac, Maryland, three miles northwest of the Capital Beltway. The parish church was built in 1961 and expanded in 1977 and 1995 to accommodate growth in size and ministries. In 1988, the St. Francis Episcopal Day School opened as a parish school and, in 2008, united with St. Andrew’s Episcopal School to form the only Pre-school through Grade 12 independent Episcopal school in the Washington, D.C. area. Today, St. Francis Episcopal Church is a lively congregation of more than 1,000 members drawn from the greater Washington community. Worship, education, fellowship, and service are hallmarks of our life together. We invite you to become part of our story at St. Francis.
