Religion in San Francisco

Sts. Peter and Paul Church


Saints Peter and Paul Church (Italiano: Ss. Pietro e Paolo) is a Roman Catholic Church in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood. Located (somewhat ironically) at 666 Filbert Street, it is directly across from Washington Square. It is known as "La cattedrale d'Italia ovest," or "The Italian Cathedral of the West," and has served as the home church and cultural center for San Francisco's Italian-American community since its consecration. More recently, it has also become the home church for the city's Chinese-American Roman Catholic population. The church offers weekly masses in Italian, Mandarin, and English.
