History:
The Sisters of the Community of the Resurrection pioneered the work of the church among the Chinese in Port Elizabeth. Converts started worshipping, at the turn of the century, in a school room in Queen Street. After the last world war efforts were made to build a church and this came to fruition with the building in Brassel Street which was consecrated in August 1954. This church was conveniently situated in the centre of town - no more than one bus ride for any parishioner. With the introduction of the Group Areas Act the Chinese community was moved to Kabega and eventually a new church building was erected closer to 'home' and this was dedicated by Bishop Bruce Evans in December 1981. Placed under the care of All Saints shortly after moving to Kabega, 1996 will see St Francis granted full parochial independence.
