Bay Area Goretti Group


Welcome to the San Francisco Bay Area Goretti Group Chapter!
We believe living the virtue of chastity according to our state in life allows us the freedom to become who God created us to be as either male or female and find authentic love and real happiness.  We invite you to join us for prayer and community as we continue to work to build a culture of life and love!

Goretti Mass
Come and join us on the first Friday of every month for Mass, Dinner, and a talk. Celebrated in honor of our patron saint, St. Maria Goretti, we come together every month as a community to support each other in our commitment to purity, be nourished by the sacraments, pray for our friends and loved ones, and hear a great chastity talk by one of our local speakers. All are welcome!
