Our History

Welcome to the Chinese Apostolate of Saints Peter and Paul Church.

On December 15, 2017 we lost our beloved director, Fr. Mario Rosso, SDB. Words cannot express the depths of our loss and heartbrokenness.

The Funeral was on Wednesday, December 20.

The notice of his passing, with service times, is here.

Fr. John Itzaina's homily is here.

The eulogy, given by Mr. Peter Yee, is here.

Our parish photgrapher Patrick Gee has a very nice set of photos of Fr. Mario. Check them out here.

He also has photos from the burial at Salesian Cemetery in Richmond, here.

Fr. Mario, pray for us!

Giving for Thanksgiving! A group of our volunteers served at St.  Boniface on Wednesday,  Thanksgiving Eve.  We prepared and served hot meals to the many homeless going there for shelter and homeless on the street in the neighborhood.  This is the second time the Chinese Apostolate from Ss Peter and Paul participate in this Interfaith Winter Shelter program.  We felt very blessed and thankful to be able to offer help to the ones in need! Here are some photos:





Helping the Little Sisters!

Members of the Chinese Apostolate visited the Little Sisters of the Poor in September! Amaza Lam says "We helped them repaint their garden retaining walls that haven’t been touched for almost 19 years! Their volunteer coordination, Kathleen, and Mother Theresa were very happy with our work!  We were so glad we could offer them some helping hands…"

Check out their great work!
