How to get on Father Brown’s email list:

Use the link above to register officially as a member of the parish, AND provide an updated email address. Be sure to check your spam folder so you will get news each month from the pastor about events, scheduling, etc. (Each time I use our computer system to email our members, only about HALF of the people registered receive the email. In some cases, they don’t do email; in other cases, their email address is obsolete.)

Archdiocesan Annual Appeal 2022

As of December 6, Saint Nick tells me we have received $56,388 toward our goal for this year’s Annual Appeal of $71,805.00 (which is $4,441.00 less than last year).

I donated one thousand dollars to the AAA as I do each year, because I know firsthand how much the ADSF helps us, especially when we need guidance in terms of human resource, legal assistance, or training for safety. If you can, please match my gift, or exceed it. Every dollar we raise in excess of our goal comes back to us: we intend to use that overage to fund maintenance on our beloved parish church, built back in 1908. To learn more, or to donate to the parish goal, please go here. Be sure to select “St. Anselm” from the dropdown list of churches. Thank you for your support! Father Brown


Join St. Anselm Church Choir

Alleluia! The new season of St. Anselm’s Parish Choir is beginning!

If you love to sing – even if only in the shower – come and share your voice with the choir as they raise their voices to “sing a new song to the Lord” (Psalm 98).

We welcome all, young and old, new members and former members who would like to get back into the “sing” of things! And we welcome all voice types – soprano, alto, tenor, bass – even countertenors!

A special welcome to youth of high school age. Singing in the parish choir may be your opportunity for community service hours.

We meet every Thursday evening in the church, from 7 – 8:30 p.m., and sing usually
twice a month, at 10 a.m. Sunday Mass. For information, contact the Music
Director, Michael Mello, at (415)454-5098. “Come, ring out your joy to the Lord!”
(Psalm 95)
