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
September 22, 2019

There is an old canard, “Wherever there are three Italians, there are four political parties.” One could argue, overly simplistically, “Wherever there are three Catholics, there are four prayer groups, and four special movements, and four personal ministries.” Variety can be the spice of life, but it can also become divisive if not lived prudently and charitably.

The parish is one. The archdiocese is one. The Church in the USA is one. The world Church is one. Jesus prays to the Father, “so that they may all be one [...] that the world may believe that you sent Me.”

Abbot Damien wrote a powerful letter in the Summer 2019 edition of The Valyermo Chronicle. I quote from that: "Oneness among the followers of Christ is not about holding hands and singing Kumbaya and feeling happy and warm inside. It’s about imitating God Himself who is three in one, the undivided unity. It’s unity in the one Spirit that makes thousands of believers one body: the Body of Christ, formed and molded in and by the love of God. This oneness of the Spirit strengthens the Body for the work towards the one goal—the fulfill- ment of the will of the one God!—that all be saved, to seek and save the lost, to make known the love of the Father, to spread the Good News of forgiveness and reconciliation through the sacrifice of Jesus. [...] If Jesus prayed for unity, then we too must pray for unity and work to- wards it through His commandment to love. It is love alone that will conquer and heal the division in the Body of Christ. As St. Paul writes, “put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity.” (Col. 3:14)"

Our parish is, in my opinion, healthy and holy. But it could become even more so! We need to avoid the temptation to start up something new just so we can be “in charge of it.” Seek to merge efforts so as to add the strength of numbers to what we do. Avoid all gossip, bickering and useless comparisons. Let us pray for one another!


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.”
