The California Catholic Conference (CCC) of Bishops offers its support for Proposition 57: The Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act. This balanced approach to the criminal justice system in our state would advance the well-being of our residents and communities by re-focusing our collective efforts on rehabilitation, treatment and education programs. In addition, the initiative will place the decision to try juveniles as adults into the hands of those who best understand the intricacies of dealing with young people – the juvenile court.

Can You Spend One Hour With Me?
Jesus asked His Apostles, “Could you not keep watch with me for one hour?” This is a beautiful way to spend quiet time in the presence of our Lord. Hours for exposition are: 12 noon to 5:00 pm, Thursdays.

Are you a registered parishioner?
Have you moved, changed phone numbers, or had other changes since registering? Help us to keep our records up to date by letting us know when changes happen—call the parish office at 524-7421 or go to the
Update Form page to change your address. Do you consider yourself a member of the parish? If you do, but have not registered, please do so. Please call the parish office at 524-7421. Periodically we mail out information and would hate to have you miss out on what is happening because you haven’t let us know you are part of us. Help us to be a more welcoming parish

For security our parking lot gates will be closed at 8:15 am on school days. The sliding gate between the old hall and Church will remain closed. If you are attending weekday morning Mass we ask that you please park on the street or the parking lot in front of the school.

Don’t Be A Victim
NEVER leave any valuable items in your car that can be seen. If you’re going to leave something in the trunk or other areas that are out of sight, place them there before you arrive. There are people w ho watch and wait for any opportunity to break into cars. Our security cameras are good, but they can’t stop a break-in. Also, please don’t leave bicycles parked without locking them. Purses, bags, and backpacks should never be left unattended-even while going to communion. Sadly, there are people who look for opportunities. Don’t be a victim!
