Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

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
December 8, 2019

Today’s Gospel passage introduces John the Baptist calling us to prepare a clear passage for the Lord! This bridge between the two testaments plays a large role in both the Advent and the Christmas seasons. Not long ago I drove the 2 down below. Fortunately, there was no opposing traffic when I came upon a fairly large rock in my lane!  Not only is that road anything but straight, it is also narrow. The hazard was survived with nothing more than a short spike in blood pressure!  But this call to remove obstacles from the Lord’s path to us reminded me of that rock in the road. Everything from the ridiculous to the sublime can get in our way on our life’s journey. 

Pope Francis speaks of the need to “encounter” others and to “accompany” them as we evangelize—share the basic message of the Gospel of Joy.  Recognizing the twists and the rocks in their paths is part of that encounter. Just as Jesus takes us where we are and loves us into what we are called to be, we need to accept others and help them name their hurts and needs. Journeying with them, accom-panying them, as they work toward wholeness and holiness is very important. Good teachers and coaches assess the performance of their charges and help them strengthen what is weak building on what is already strong or at least nascent. 


Adults who are at least 21 years old, single or married in Church, who need to be confirmed, are invited to attend a preparation program either on Wednesday, February 5, 12; 19 from 7:30–9:00 PM, or Sunday, February 9, 16; 23 from 3:30–5:00 PM. Confirmation this year will be celebrated within 6:00 PM Mass on both June 1 and June 2, 2020. If you also need First Holy Communion, two more classes will be added to the program. We ask a fee for materials—$25 for confirmation and $35 to include FHC—but nobody will be turned away if that cannot be paid. Call Michele to register.   
Those who are married only civilly will need to have their marriage “regularized” by the Church before being confirmed. This is not one size fits all because there are many variations of circumstances. Talk to one of the priests about getting this done for yourself. 


Please note the special events to celebrate 
Our Lady of Guadalupe, Empress of the Americas, on December 12th.   All are welcome, but do know that the rosary, serenade and Mass in the evening will be in Spanish.  Afterwards there will be music and dance in the hall along with free tamales!   


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.”
