Additional observations The Dominican order came to San Francisco in 1850, three years before the Archdiocese of San Francisco was established. The community bought the property for St. Dominic’s in 1863, and in 1873, the first parish church was built. A larger church was built in the 1880s, but collapsed in the 1906 earthquake. The current church on that site was completed in 1928. Work continued on the structure in the years following, including nine flying buttresses added in the 1990s to make the church seismically stable. It is built in the Gothic style; features include a carved marble altar from Italy, carved oak side altars, shrines and confessionals, many beautiful statues, paintings and stained glass windows. St. Dominic’s also houses the Shrine of St. Jude (https://www.stjude-shrine.org/) and a columbarium, where the cremated remains of loved ones can be interred. It is a busy parish with fine priests, and has been particularly known in the Bay area for its strong young adult community.
