Young Adults

Young Adults

The Young Adults Group at St. Mary’s invites everyone who self-identifies in this demographic to join us for social events, service opportunities, and programs specifically developed for our group.  San Francisco is a city of transplants so we welcome all to join the fun and help create a sense of community.  Events are casual and service opportunities don’t require long term commitments – we tailor this program to meet your needs. Whether you are single, partnered, married, have kids, don’t have kids, or are somewhere in-between, there is a place for you here.

If you would like to sign up for email updates, please contact our parish administrator at office@smvsf.org


LGBT Community

The LGBT Group at St. Mary’s is one of the church’s largest groups with over 30 members. Offering service opportunities and social engagements, the LGBT crew invites all to join us for fun and activities. Events are usually offered every other month. All are welcome!

Previous events include all the usual favorite things of San Franciscans- Brunches, Dinner parties and hosting the church’s Mardi Gras party. We look forward to leading service activities in collaboration with Larkin Street Youth Services and the broader community.

If you would like to sign up for email updates, please contact our parish administrator at office@smvsf.org.


Parents of Young Children

Having a young child is one of the most exciting and adventurous experiences life can offer! But it’s also an exhausting one and, all too often, potentially isolating. Thankfully St. Mary’s is full of young families committed to supporting and caring for one another while raising little ones in the wider family of the Church. Together we enjoy family-friendly picnics and parent-centered programs.

Want to start a new group?

St. Mary’s is such a vibrant community, in part, because our members are so committed to creating and sustaining new ministries. If you think a new affinity group or other ministry might serve the parish and wider community, we encourage you to consider starting it. While the clergy are always here to reflect and guide this process, we also encourage you to read this helpful document describing not only how many of our thriving groups came into being but how you can create one, too: livingyourcall.
