Children's Liturgy of the Word

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (English & Spanish)

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is ongoing throughout the year meeting on Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm.  It is for non-Christian adults who feel called to the Catholic faith; and for adults who are baptized Christians and wish to attain the fullness of the Catholic faith through reception of the sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Confirmation.  

For more information contact the Rectory at (415) 621-8203 or email to leave a message for Maria Rosales-Uribe.

Youth Group


Youth Group meets the first Saturday of every month.  We start at 4:15 to prep for the mass and meet afterwards for faith, food, and fellowship.
The mission of the Youth Ministry is to involve our youth in the life of the parish. Though this ministry, new life, energy and vitality is brought to the Church. Opportunies to serve the parish include altar serving, helping with CCD on Saturdays, and
social justice projects such as helping with making sandwiches to give out at the recotry.  Fidelity to the Gospel urges us to emphasize human dignity and social justice as a move towards creating a better youth oriented Church for the 21st Century. 


Young Mission Dolores (YMD)

Looking to start Young Adult Ministry.  It would be  an evolving group of young Catholic adults, married and single, from our parish. YMD has one purpose: to put people in contact with others and programs that respond to the needs of young adults. We hope that our social, spiritual, and community-oriented events are both fun and inspiring. YMD masses take place on the first Saturday of the month during the 5pm liturgy.
