We are three hundred plus souls from many lands and cultures who come together in the middle of Los Angeles in a century-old parish that thrives as it prays, sings, works, serves, and plays together. We are also a flourishing K-6 elementary school, a preschool, a soup kitchen and food pantry, prayer groups, a multi-year Education for Ministry group, book groups, men’s and women’s groups, and much more. We invite you to use this web site to explore some of the things we are currently doing and to enrich our lives by joining us.
