Once I learned a bit of the history of the San Francisco westward migration to our neighborhoods, I always thought of the Sunset as "the Promised Land". The denizens of the Mission and North Beach in particular left their crowded ghettos, gave up the better weather and came to the fog lands.
I felt sorry for the Italians at Holy Name for the parish's Irish chauvinism. Msgr. Bill Flanagan and the Sisters of Mercy (an Irish order I believe)featured all things Irish.
Happy St. Paddy's Day to yez all!
