Jesuits Profiled in 'Catholic San Francisco'

Catholic San Francisco, the official newspaper of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, profiled the Society of Jesus in its latest issue, providing some good historical information. A snippet:

Jesuit work in San Francisco also included parish ministry through St. Ignatius Church between 1855 and 1863; the parish was made famous by Father James Bouchard, SJ, the son of a French woman and a Delaware chief. In the 1860s San Franciscans flocked to hear him speak and called him “The Eloquent Indian” for his skill as a homilist. Much later, in the early 1990s, Jesuits resumed their parish work, once again at St. Ignatius Church, located on the USF campus, and at St. Agnes Church, two vibrant communities in the archdiocese.
