St. Ignatius At The University Of San Francisco

Saint Ignatius Catholic Church at the University of San Francisco

Saint Ignatius Church (SI) - Often mistaken as San Francisco's Roman Catholic cathedral, was designed by architect (lots of pictures>) Charles J. I. Devlin in 1909, as the fifth Saint Ignatius Church in San Francisco. When Saint Ignatius was completed in 1914, with its two towers visible from all parts of the city, it became not only a landmark to the University itself but also to the City of San Francisco. It is the University's spiritual home as well as a parish church for the surrounding community.

I went there on Good Friday in 2002 after my return to the Catholic church.

It was closed. How about that.

Lousy timing.

That's about when I came back as well.
