Michael Cronin, Associate Pastor

Michael is a native San Franciscan who has a background in the Theatrical Arts. He has been an active member in all aspects of the MCCSF community – choirs to Board of Directors – since 1996. In 2011 he received “The Call” which led him to pursue a Masters of Divinity at the Pacific School of Religion/Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley; a moment in which his Roman Catholic family, thinking he had grown a second head asked, “does this bring you happiness?”  Michael seeks to meet people where they are and not live in the duality of the Sacred and Profane: God does not draw such distinctions. He is honored to be working with such a dynamic team and to serve this community.
