: Can anyone tell me the closest Catholic Church to 1022 McAllister St, San Francisco in 1873? One that Irish would go to. Thank you.

Below are a list of Catholic Churches from the 1873 directory. I don't see anything close to your address, which is surprising.

During that time, the Mission was very Irish. So, I would think Mission Dolores might be possible. Also, St. Joseph's on 10th would also be a good bet.


St. Mary's Cathedral, northeast corner California & Dupont
St. Francis, north side of Vallejo street, between Dupont & Stockton
St. Patrick's, north side of Mission street, between Third & Fourth
St. Boniface (German), south side of Taylor street, between Jones & Leavenworth
St. Ignatius, north side of Market street, between Fourth & Fifth
Notre Dame des Victoires, north side of Bush street, between Dupont & Stockton
Mission Dolores, southwest corner of Sixteenth & Dolores streets
St. Joseph's, west side of Tenth street, between Folsom & Howard
St. Rose's, Brannan street near Fourth
St. Bridget's, southwest corner of Broadway & Van Ness Avenue
St. Peter's, west side of Columbia street, between 24th & 25th
Church of the Holy Cross, Calvary Cemetery

Presentation Convent Chapel, Powell street
St. Rose's, Brannan street
New Presentation Convent, corner of Taylor & Ellis streets
St. Mary's Hospital Chapel, Brannan street
Magdalen Asylum Chapel, San Bruno Road
St. Mary's College Chapel, San Jose Road
St. Joseph's Infant Asylum, Bay View Turnpike
