  • It was a great decision that this parish should be designated as the "National Shrine" to St. Francis. A beautiful church with a lot of local history but also emphasizing for whom this great city was named. The statues and the new Porziuncula chapel are great ways to help teach the faith and promote St. Francis' spirituality. I hope every Catholic who visits SF will see this church and many non-Catholics will learn about our faith through this beautiful sanctuary in the heart of a great city.
  • Beautiful church, and amazing to see a relic inside.
