Read the daily quote from Pope Francis


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
January 20, 2019

Let me thank everyone again for everything that made Christmas Season 2018 at St. Junípero Serra so very special! I really think we celebrated the Coming of Christ whole heartedly, devoutly and beautifully. It took all of us to do it and, with the Lord’s grace, we did it well! These past several months held several serious challenges for me and the parish— personally, financially and pastorally. I would prefer not to repeat them any time soon, BUT we made it through them. Both Finance and Pastoral Councils, along with loyal staff members and other parishioners, rallied to the occasion and got the sails back up, and they have caught the wind. Things are looking much better on all fronts. Our Patron Saint’s motto urges us on: Always Forward! Never Backward!

Sheesh, another birthday! They sure used to seem to take a lot longer to arrive years ago, didn’t they? I still have three living aunts, two paternal and one maternal, as well as older cousins. This helps me maintain the illusion of youth! But there’s no denying that 67 is NOT middle aged—I certainly will not live to be 134!

Some seventeen ministries will share their identity and mission next week after all Masses. We really need some fresh blood in our ministries. Please remember that anyone who is confirmed and in good standing as a practicing Catholic can distribute Holy Communion as an Extraordinary Minister or serve as a lector. For the latter, good reading ability is also required.

 St. Leonard Murialdo was canonized on May 3, 1970. The Congregation of St. Joseph is celebrating fifty years of sainthood beginning this year. Look for more information in the near future.

Pope Francis recently encourage all Catholics to faithfully pray the rosary daily and to add the Sub Tuum Praesidium, the oldest Marian prayer of the Church, and the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel. The intention is the purification of the Church, freedom from evil, stronger efforts to combat abuse, and trust in God’s care, which we feel in the Blessed Mother’s tender care. 

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.”
