National Shrine of St.Francis of Assisi
I was in the North Beach area of San Francisco and visited the Naitonal Shrine of St.Francis of Assisi. The church was established in 1849 and the city of San Francisco and the State of California were both incorpated in 1850, so the church predates both the city and the state. The current church was built in 1919. The church is no longer a parish but in 1999, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops granted the church the title of National Shrine of St.Francis of Assisi:
The National Shrine of St.Francis of Assisi is a beautiful place and one of those places in San Francisco that is hidden but worth going to.
