Holy Family Chinese Mission
Recently the Bishops of the United States published a pastoral letter titled, "Asian and Pacific Presence–Harmony in Faith." In the chapter on "Sharing Gifts and Promoting Harmony," the Bishops state, "Harmony is central to the lives and cultures of Asian and Pacific communities." According to the bishops of Asia, "harmony embodies the realities of order, well-being, justice and love as seen in human interaction. Harmony is not simply the absence of strife. The test of true harmony lies in acceptance of diversity and richness." It is in the spirit of harmony, the acceptance of diversity and richness of culture, that the Paulist Fathers minister to the Chinese people in San Francisco today. We celebrate our rich history and tradition by reflecting on more than 100 years of diversity and richness of Chinese culture as we celebrate our past, present, and future. Old St. Mary's Cathedral and Holy Family officially became one parish on Sept. 9, 2013.
