Welcome to the Deanery of St Francis. Our community exists to enable, encourage and facilitate the ministry of the Anglican churches in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.
The Deanery is led by the Vicar General and the Rural Dean with the help of many committed lay leaders and clergy throughout the Eastern Townships. For more information on our work and ministry, we invite you to read our Regional Ministry Brochure.
This website is intended to be used as a resource hub for the various ministries and structures of the Deanery. If you wish to be in contact with a local worshipping community please see the Parishes page and explore this map on our diocesan website.
