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
December 2, 2018

December 7th is First Friday and the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

Our ecumenical Advent Lessons and Carols will be in Our Lady’s Chapel on December 6th at 7:00 PM. St. Paul Episcopal Church will be joining us for this lovely combination of scripture and song.

December 8th is the Patronal Feast of the United States—the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is a holy day of obligation. Unfortunately, we forgot somehow and put in four Quinceañeras that day. The Friday evening Mass will be held in church and is the Vigil celebration for the Immaculate Conception. The 7:00 AM Mass on Saturday is also the Immaculate Conception and will be in church. Since the impossible does NOT bind, if you cannot attend one of our two Holy Day Masses or one in a neighboring parish, you are not culpable.

Today we begin a new year of grace, the cyclical calendar of the liturgical year. We prepare for Christmas these four weeks and then we will celebrate the birth of Christ until the Baptism of the Lord around mid-January.

Advent is mainly a time of preparation. It does retain a little bit of the penitential notion in the color purple (blue violet) and in the forward glance to the second coming of Christ in the beginning of the season. The prayers of the liturgy turn to the birth of Christ on December 17th.

Our Advent communal penance service is scheduled for Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at 7:00 in the church. Sacred Heart’s is December 13th and St. Mary’s is December 20th. We will have regular confessions on Saturday, December 22nd.

Creighton University has wonderful resources on their campus ministry pages for you to check out.

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.”
