Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

Welcome!

Welcome to Saint Junipero Serra Parish! We are a Catholic Faith Community, located in Quartz Hill (Lancaster), California. Our parish was founded on August 15, 1987 and has grown significantly in these 30 years. Please feel welcome to join us for Mass, especially on the Lord’s Day. Our liturgies are supported by a full spectrum of ministries. We really take seriously the Catholic Church’s insistence that “participation of the faithful is the goal to be considered before all others.” Read More...


Pastor's Corner
February 23, 2020
Wednesday is Ash Wednesday. We will distribute ashes at all Masses: 7:00 AM, 12:00, 5:00 and 7:30 PM (Spanish). Anticipating larger than normal daily Mass attendance, all four Masses will be celebrated in the church that day. Reception of Holy Communion is INFINITELY more important than ashes—please don’t duck out of church after the imposition of ashes which takes place after the homily. The current mind of the Church is that the People of God are mature enough to choose appropriate acts of penance and self-denial for themselves.The barest of regulations are still in place for us. The following is taken from the USCCB: 
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. [“Abstinence” here means not eating meat or meat products, including chicken.] 
For members of the Latin Catholic Church [our Rite], the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards. [Providing that one’s health permits these dietary restrictions.] 
Many of us were reared with the practice of “giving up” something for Lent. Of course, the best thing to give up is something that is harmful, frivolous or perhaps even sinful but not just during the Lenten season. What sense does it make to abandon smoking during Lent, and lighting up Easter morning? Some excellent common behaviors to “fast from” include gossip, whining, lying, rude and crude vulgarity, or using the Lord’s name in vain. Doing “more” is also a good Lenten resolution: more prayer, charity and almsgiving, for example. 
The hours of 12:00 to 3:00 PM on Fridays have the ancient honor of being seen as times to engage in mortification as well as acts of mercy. At 3:00, one could pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, call a shut-in person, write a note to an old friend who’s moved away and so forth. Again, your baptism (and confirmation) enables you to make these prudent decisions for spiritual growth. Work at becoming saints, and do it fast! was an exhortation of St. Leonard Murialdo to us CSJs. Pope Francis encourages us not to be afraid of holiness. I extend the same to all of you. 


There is a wide-spread scam going around where ministers are hacked and their people are asked for donations of some sort, gift cards for ill friends, money to get home from vacation, etc. PLEASE KNOW THAT NONE OF US here at St. Junipero Serra would ever ask our people for money like that. Delete & block such emails, texts & phone calls, please. 


Sub Tuum Praesidium: “We turn to you for protection, Holy Mother of God. Listen to our prayers and help us in our needs. Save us from every danger, glorious and blessed Virgin.”

The prayer to St. Michael the Archangel: “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.”
