This is your true inner city, downtown Faith center. Smelly vagrants and homeless, pious ladies and men. Terrific noon time concerts part of the year. Gorgeous statues of yester year. Super location, great for business travellers and downtown folks to get to Mass on weekdays,...More

The St. Patrick Cathedral is the perfect place to start your visit in San Francisco. An inspirational building located across from the Moscone convention center. I hope you find the warm, welcoming spirit that my brother White Buffalo and I found when we visited.

I love slipping into St. Patrick Catholic Church to reset from the bustle of the San Francisco streets. It is an oasis of peace. I also enjoy quietly sketching the statues inside.

Atmosphere was quite and comfortable. Pews weren't crowded. Sound was easy to understand. Priest was welcoming. Friendly.

We love this church, a "throw back" to the way churches used to be built. Very traditional and peaceful to sit and reflect or attend a mass.

A peaceful and serene church. Gorgeous architecture, stained glass windows, and sculptures. A wonderful place to say some prayers and enjoy the quiet.

St. Patrick's is just one block from the Moscone Convention Center and right next door to the large Marriott hotel. The main entrance if on Mission, but the back entrance opens up to a small alleyway full of shops and restaurants. Today, the church serves...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
