Sharing Your Treasure

 

Old St. Mary’s + Chinese Mission is an intercultural community of faith, and each day we strive to stand up to our mission, staying true to the work we do as a parish and as the Second foundation of the Paulist Fathers and the first Cathedral in California.

 

Old St. Mary’s + Chinese Mission today and every day, is a beacon of faith, a haven and an advocate for those in need. It is also a patron of the arts, where our community can experience an awareness of God through the giftedness of musicians and artists. It is because of the generous financial gifts that we receive from our parishioners, friends and visitors,  hat we are able to continue to serve in these ways.

  • Celebrate the Church’s liturgy with beauty and dignity

  • Reach out with love to the poor and the needy

  • Offer faith formation programs

  • Compensate our staff with a just living wage

  • Sustain our highly acclaimed musical, ecumenical and cultural programs
