Parish Hall Construction

St. Francis' new worship home is on its property located at 1484 Hockett Road near Centerville, Virginia.  We are 1/2 mile south from the intersection of Broad Street and Rt 623 Hockett Road.  St. Francis is easily accessible from exit 173 off of I-64, from Tuckahoe Creek Parkway, off Rt 288, and from Rt 6 River Road West via its intersection with Hockett Road.

During our first 6.5 years, St. Francis held its worship services in several locations, the last being the Randolph Elementary School.  Construction on the new facility began on August 16, 2010 and completed on December 5, 2010.  It involved renovating the existing building on the church property into a Parish Hall which allowed the congregation to begin worshipping on our own property in our own building.  Please join us for worship in our new home and take a photographic tour of our "Renovation Journey" below:
