The Roman Catholic Archdiocese Of San Francisco

We, the Catholic Church of San Francisco,
in a communion of faith and charity
with the successor of Peter,
reach out and receive with welcoming arms
all of God's People:

the saint and the sinner; the young and the elderly;
the poor and the rich; the immigrant and the native;
the lost sheep and those still searching.

At this unique moment,
as we stand at the crossroad leading to the Third Millenium,
we recognize ourselves as pilgrim people
called by God and empowered by the Spirit
to be disciples of Jesus Christ.
