St. Thomas More Church in San Francisco. As you can see from
visiting our church and from our website, we are a diverse community
bonded together through our faith in Jesus Christ and our trust in
the Blessed Mother, Mary. We represent
various ethnicities and all age groups from tots to teens to young
adults, the middle aged, and elders. Some are single; some are
married; some are widowed; some are divorced. Our parishioners are
students, craftsmen and women, merchants, teachers, musicians,
artists, accountants, clerks, nurses, doctors, lawyers, and stay-at-home moms. We pray
with and for each other.
Eucharist is the source and summit of spirituality, and we certainly
look forward to your joining us each Sunday. Mass is celebrated in
several languages (God understands them all), and there are age appropriate liturgies of the

Francisco State University students. Adults interested in exploring the Catholic faith
are invited to RCIA; a new class begins each October and extends
through March. There is
Bible study for everyone, and our various choirs are always happy to
have new voices. We have many other community-building activities
and service projects where you might find friends and fellowship and
