“an inspiration to the members of the North Beach community for over a century”
We, Salesians of St. John Bosco, living in a fraternal religious community, administer SS Peter and Paul Parish. We collaborate with the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians, Salesian Cooperators and other members of our Salesian family in ministering to youth and adults in North Beach and the greater Bay Area through our Chinese ministry, elementary school, Salesian Boys' and Girls' Club, sacramental programs, parish associations and activities. Originally sent to San Francisco to minister specifically to the Italian immigrant population, we now continue our mandate, as a parish reaching out to others, through youth and family ministry. We also regularly visit and administer the sacraments to the many sick and elderly shut-ins in our parish and beyond. The present church, with its twin lofty spires that soar 191 feet into the sky, was completed in 1924. For over a century, the church of SS.

A ribbon of verse from Dante's "Paradiso" spans the facade and translates:
