He also serves part-time as an Assistant Chaplain at St. Augustine's Episcopal Chapel in Nashville. As an Episcopal priest, labor, and community organizer, Francisco’s work over the last ten years has centered around congregation-based ministry and interfaith community organizing around immigrant rights, housing rights, and racial and economic justice issues in the greater Los Angeles region. He served as the Rector of Holy Faith Episcopal Church, in Inglewood, California. In 2016, Francisco facilitated an organizing effort making the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles a Sanctuary Diocese, and co-founded the resulting Diocesan ministry known as Sacred Resistance.
