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.

Pastor's Corner
January 12, 2020

My column is always written a bit ahead of the publication date. I am writing on the Feast of the Holy Family, December 29th. A third report of violence against worshipers has just been made—a gun shooting in Fort Worth at a Church of Christ left two dead, including the shooter. The evening before a crazed man with a machete entered the home of an Orthodox Rabbi just outside New York City and attacked those celebrating the 7th night of Hanukkah. This was the fourth attack against Jews there recently. A few days before there was a small mention of ISIS murdering 11 Christians in Nigeria, probably Catholics, in retaliation for the death of their leader Baghdadi. There have been numerous other reports of homicide across the country, including here in California. The birth of the Prince of Peace amidst so much violence is difficult to wrap my mind around! Anti-Semitism can have no corner within Catholicism, especially after the Second Vatican Council and Pope St. Paul VI published Nostra Aetate. This document on the Relation of the Church with Non- Christian Religions received 2,221 yes votes and 88 no votes by the bishops in council. Personally, I am convinced that one of the causes of the return of anti- Semitism in the West is historical and theological ignorance. None of us can “change” another person. With grace and determination, we can change ourselves. Let us on this Feast of the Baptism of the Lord commit to lowering the “violence” within ourselves. By becoming more peaceful and gentler in speech, thought and action, we will have a ripple effect within our sphere of influence.  

St. Leonard Murialdo was nicknamed “the dove” because of his sweetness. St. Francis de Sales taught that there is nothing stronger than gentleness. My maternal grandfather was a most gentle and peaceful man; he was blessed with a happy death during a nap. I hope to start imitating these three men better in 2020. Won’t you join me on this journey?


Thank you very much for your kind wishes, lovely cards and generous gifts this Christmas.  Do know that each is appreciated and each of you is in my prayer and sacrifices.  Tiny Tim said it so well, “God bless us, everyone!”  Again, thank you! 


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.”
