Your health and safety is important. If you are ill, symptomatic, or fall into the “most vulnerable” category, please refrain from attending mass or confessions. The dispensation from attending mass is still in order, so we ask that you watch our Mass livestreams on our website , Youtube or Facebook page. Please remember to wear your mask at all times and to wash your hands for more than 20 seconds before arriving. Thank you!
Onsite Masses will be added weekly using a phased-in approach. Click to read more about our new procedures.
*12/22/2020 UPDATE: Some have asked if we will return to Mass indoors given the recent LA County Health Department modification for churches. We are awaiting directives from the Archdiocese regarding this matter and will carefully evaluate whether we can return to Mass inside the church after the New Year. Any decision made will be made first and foremost to protect our community, while trying to safely accommodate the worship needs of our parishioners. Thank you!

A Message from Fr. Robert Fulton
Hello! This is Father Robert Fulton wishing each of you a very blessed and Happy New Year!
Without a doubt, every one of us eagerly awaits the arrival of 2021 and hopes it will slam shut the door on a year that brought us the events that 2020 did.
It is this hope that unites us and reminds us that we must focus on our blessings and remain strong in our faith. God will never leave our side – no matter how bleak the moment may seem.
God’s love for us is resolute. In the face of our fears and sufferings, God provides solace, compassion and forgiveness for our shortcomings. May our New Year’s resolution be to further grow in our relationship with Our Heavenly Father.
As a community, we have faced many challenges this past year and we found the strength to work together to overcome those challenges. As we end this year and stand at the dawn of a New Year that holds so much promise, I pray that we continue to work together to serve each other and God.
Please start the New Year off by joining us for the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. Masses will be at 4:30 PM on New Year’s Eve and 6:30, 9:30 and 11:00 AM on New Year’s Day. Details are in this week’s bulletin.
Your generous support throughout this past year has been extraordinary and has enabled us to help so many. I want to personally thank you for this and to encourage your continued generosity so that we can meet our own needs and help others in need! May God bless and reward you!
Finally, please know that it is my fervent prayer that the Infant Jesus will bring you peace to bless your home, hope for tomorrow and joy throughout the New Year! Thank you for being part of our community and May the Christ Child bless you today and throughout 2021.
Happy New Year!
