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
Maintain our historic Church and other adjacent parish buildings
Gifts of any amount can be made via our secure online donation system. You can opt to make a one-time gift or a recurring offering. We are grateful for whatever support you offer.
