Saint Anselm Church and School is a Catholic community formed by families, individuals and clergy who worship together, celebrate the sacramental life of the Church, and seek to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their everyday lives. We strive to welcome, serve and educate. We look forward to meeting you in church soon! We are also most grateful to all who support Saint Anselm Parish through EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer), Online Giving, and registering as official members of the parish.

St. Anselm’s Parishioners:

Participate in Pope Francis’s Synod – Take the Disciple Maker Index Survey (survey closes February 15th)
Thank you to the 105 St. Anselm parishioners who completed the Disciple Maker Index survey in the first weekend of the survey opening. You can take the DMI Survey here:
www.sfarch.org/synod – scroll way down and click on “TAKE THE SURVEY” then “Marin County” then “ St. Anselm” and then fill out the anonymous questionnaire. During the Mass inaugurating the Synod, Pope Francis said that the Christian community must reflect the “style of God, who travels the paths of history and shares in the life of humanity.” This is a “time to look others in the eye and listen to what they have to say, to build rapport, to be sensitive to the questions of our sisters and brothers.”

One step is a confidential survey St. Anselm’s and the Archdiocese of San Francisco are inviting you to participate in. Thank you for taking the time to complete it.

We will be resuming our Teachings on Zoom starting this January. ToZ will be offered most 4th Thursdays of the month. We would love for you to join us for an informal discussion in reference to a thought provoking presentation from one of our guest speakers. ToZ is open to all adults.
