We will, of cou ...

Well, it is a big deal because this is how we support the Church. We make an annual pledge to support the Church’s programs and ministries. We do so in accordance with our means. We do so commensurate with our faith. If we believe in the work of the Church, we give. If we don’t, we don’t give, or we give nominally.

Quiet and unassuming, Dr. Anthony Elite is a powerful example of faith, to both his family and his community. A frequent communicant in the Liturgy, Dr. Elite has championed the causes of education, and of poverty, homelessness and isolation as far back as we can remember. He has, over the course of his distinguished career, brought many people, young and old, back to health and to a sound sp ...

Once again, we’re in the home stretch as far as the exterior is concerned. Honestly, we can’t wait for it to finish. However, with the current building boom in San Francisco, the Contractor has been experiencing difficulty getting subs to do the work. Given the challenges of getting workers and coming up with the money to pay our contractor, we are, nevertheless, nearing completion of th ...
