St. Dominic’s is the largest Catholic church is San Francisco. Teeming with history, this mega-building in lower Pacific Heights / Western Addition is quite dynamic. A ton of ministries doing good work. The people are extremely welcoming. Many services offered at various times and days to suit almost everyone. I sat through a service and the mix of singing and sermonizing was just right. Many local families attend with kids. It’s heartwarming to see the continuation of appreciation for worship amongst families here. The vibe is good. The location is excellent. A good place to stop by for your religious fix and communion.
Magnificent Catholic church. The most beautiful Gothic in San Francisco. Dedicated shrine to St. Jude with candle offerings. Sunday night mass by candlelight.... just spiritually beautiful...
