We saw His star at its rising and have come to do Him homage.

Matthew 2:2

Welcome to
St. Paul Catholic Church

a place where God lives

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Selecting a place of worship is a very personal decision and is influenced by many things in addition to your religion. As you settle into our community, I invite you to visit our parish in person, where you will find a vibrant, active, fun-loving community! St. Paul’s is a Catholic parish splendidly located in the heart of Noe Valley, and has a fascinating history with roots in the San Francisco immigrant experience.

Founded in 1880, our community still draws upon that legacy with parishioners that hail from the Mission District, Glen Park, the Castro, as well as beautiful Noe Valley. The synergy that results is reflected in our diversity and our community’s inclusive focus. Simply put, we are a community of friends and neighbors with a strong commitment to social justice and the family values that have made San Francisco a beacon to our nation. 

Consider joining us at one of our many events - maybe you’ll want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, St. Patrick’s Day, or volunteer at the Martin de Porres Soup Kitchen.

Come, worship with us any Sunday at 9:15 Family Mass, then stay for coffee and donuts after, I look forward to meeting you!

Yours in faith and fellowship,

Mario P. Farana
