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
November 10, 2019

The annual Turkey Dinner at St. Elizabeth Mission in Lake Hughes is this Sunday, November 10th.  There is more information in the bulletin.  Please do your best to support this annual event—the main fundraiser and community builder of the SEM community. 
Thanksgiving Day is a civil holiday with very strong religious overtones.  We will have one Mass that day in the church at 9:00 AM.  It would be great to have a good crowd celebrating Eucharist together as we give thanks for the freedoms we enjoy as God’s adopted children and residents of this nation.  Our imperfections and divisions are on full display, but we must never forget the great blessings and sense of generosity and purpose we have as a people.   
Continue to pray for the victims of our wildfires and those who fight them.  Also pray that we get more realistic about changes needed to lessen the number and the severity of these huge fires.  Monetary donations can be sent to Catholic Charities earmarked for fire victims.  The Knights of Columbus also gather and distribute funds to help fire victims. 
There are still tables available for hostesses at the Family tea next month.  This is usually a very good fundraiser for the Women’s Clinic of the Antelope Valley.  We need attendees who enjoy spending money on raffles and auctions!  See the blurb below in the bulletin. 
If you regularly attend the Saturday evening 5:00 Vigil Mass, you have certainly noticed reduced attendance and a severe shortage of ministers.  I, in dialogue with Faith Formation and Pastoral Council, have decided to focus that Mass on our teens and young adults.  My hope is that they will take “ownership” of ministries at this Mass.  We “oldies” will benefit from new faces, more instrumentation and song leaders.  All ages are welcome, of course, but the focus will be on our younger members.  They, too, are the church of NOW, not of the future. 
The lovely calligraphy listing our beloved dead from the last year was done by Mary Louise McMurtry.  The display was the idea of Mike Gass.  The envelopes received are bound by a black ribbon and are on the altar in church. Unfortunately, I forgot a year ago to put ten Masses in the book for "All Souls Envelopes".  Fr. Giampietro has been asked to say those ten Masses at Paraclete at his 7:15 AM Masses.  I have already put them in next year's Mass book so this won't happen again!  Even robots run low on battery power every so often!  


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.”
