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...
 

Pro-Life Month: 
Foster Care & Adoption


“True parental love is ready to go beyond the bonds of flesh and blood in order to accept children from other families, offering them whatever is necessary for their well-being and full development.”
                                                     — St. John Paul II, The Gospel of Life  

As Christians, we are all adopted sons and daughters of God—adopted through the grace of baptism so to be heirs of the Kingdom of God. Adoption is the vehicle through which God sends his grace to us, and we are invited to participate in this same spirit of adoption to children in our community in need of homes and families.  

Los Angeles County has 21,000 children in foster care, the most in the country. Many of these children have experienced abuse and neglect in their families and instability as they are moved frequently in the foster care system. As children age out of foster care without a family, a third will become homeless, a fifth will be incarcerated, and perhaps most shocking of all, 70% of trafficked youth come from the foster care system. Just 1 in 10 foster youth will go to college.  

At the same time, of the 6.7 million pregnancies annually in the United States, 1 million are aborted but only 18,000 infants are placed for adoption. 

As Catholics, we know that the family is the basic building block of society, the “domestic church,” where children find love, stability, and are nurtured to grow to their full potential. The Bible tells us that pure religion is to care for orphans (James 1:27). And every child deserves a loving family. Catholic families in a particular way are called to share our gifts with children in need of a loving home. Children in our community need the gifts of love, home and family that you have!  


Pope Francis recently encourage all Catholics to faithfully pray the rosary daily and to add the Sub Tuum Prae-sidium, 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.”
