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
October 13, 2019

From the Salesian website: Leonard Murialdo was born in Turin in 1828, eighth child of a well-to-do family. He lost his father at just four years of age, but he received an excellent Catholic education at the Scolopian College in Savona. As a youth he went through a profound spiritual crisis which converted him and helped him discover his priestly vocation. In Turin he took up his philosophical and theological studies. In these years he began to work at the Guardian Angels Oratory, run by his cousin, Fr. Robert Murialdo. 

Thanks to this collaboration, he came directly in touch with the problems of Turinese young people: street children, prisoners, chimney sweeps, and shop hands, among others. In 1851 he was ordained. He began to work in strict collaboration with Fr. Joseph Cafasso and Don Bosco and took on the administration of the St. Aloysius Oratory at Don Bosco’s request. 

Fr. Leonard breathed the Preventive System, incarnated it, and applied it in all his future educational works. In 1866 he accepted the administration of the Artigianelli College in Turin, dedicated to taking in and providing a Catholic and trades education for poor and abandoned boys. He made many journeys throughout Italy, France, and England visiting educational and welfare institutions, to learn, to address, and to improve the educational system. Fr. Leonard was among those fostering the first popular Catholic libraries and Catholic workers unions, and would be their ecclesiastical assistant for many years. In 1873, with the support of some helpers, he founded the Congregation of Saint Joseph (Josephites of Murialdo). Their apostolic purpose was the education of youths, especially of poor and abandoned youths. He opened oratories, technical schools, family homes for young workers including young farmers, and took on further commitment in lay associations, especially in the field of technical formation of the young and printing works. His motto was: Fare e tacere (“to act and keep silent”). He was a spiritual person, a man of prayer, a contemplative in action like Don Bosco. 

Around 1884 he was struck down by multiple attacks of bronchial pneumonia. Don Bosco went to give him his blessing, and despite some relapses, he lived until 1900. St. Paul VI beatified him in 1963 and canonized him on May 3, 1970.


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.”
