Welcome to St. Emydius Church

We are your Catholic community home in the Ingleside District of San Francisco, a rich multicultural community with many different ethnic and national cultures mingling freely.  As some say: this is the best kept secret in San Francisco.  

In your spiritual life, join us now as we are welcoming you back. 

Our now past troubled times of COVID is about over and this should bring you consolation, strength, perspective, and sense of mission. At the heart of the church lies the community celebration of the Eucharist which gives us all of these blessings.

Welcoming the New Year 2022, we are starting a new stage in the Catholic Church thanks to a call from Pope Francis.  Yes, the Holy Father has convened a Synod and has asked you to participate in the process!  This is happening in the first Jan-Feb 2022 for all parishes around the world.  The goal is to consult and canvass each parishioners, young and old, active Catholics or not, as to their experience of and their view of necessary changes in the Catholic Church for many future generations. 

There are 3 steps in the process

-1- Send your contact information to Synod@StEmydius.Church so we can keep in contact with you

-2- Complete a 75-question survey (link will be coming soon) - to be done by January 23, 2022

-3- Join a 2-hour listening session either online or in-person  (more info coming early February). 

We can really say that we may hold in our hands the future of the Catholic Church for many future generations.  We know we can count on your participation.
