A Small Look at St. Boniface Church
St.Boniface Church is located in one of the roughest parts of San Francisco-The Tenderloin. To me, it defines the word "church". As the sign says above, it allows the homeless to sleep in pews in the back 3/4th of the church during the hours above. They do have a noontime mass in the front 1/4 of the church. There are rules like no loud music, no drug using, no smoking, no drinking, etc and the homeless observe them. I wasn't allowed to take a lot of pictures (because they didn't want me taking pictures of people, totally understandable) but it is a such beautiful church that I was happy to get the few I did:
To me, this what a church should be about. It is inspiring to say the least and it is truly faith in action.
