My Dear Brothers and Sisters,
On behalf of Father Chris, Father Jim, Father Thaddeus, Deacon Manuel, Seminarian Eman, our entire Parish and School Staff, the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary, and myself, I wish you and your families a joyous and faith filled Easter Season. May the glory of the Risen Christ lift up our hearts.
We congratulate and welcome all the adults, youth and children who are receiving the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist in this holy season.
We are deeply grateful for those parish staff members and volunteers who work so hard in sacramental preparation. We thank Father Chris and the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) team, Deacon Manuel, Maria Montoya and Edgar from the Spanish RICA, Stephanie Ramos and the Religious Education team, Sister Miriam Mark and the school First Communion Team, Pearl Romero and the Children’s Initiation team, Leticia Saucedo and the youth Confirmation team, and Carolyn Guzman, Deacon Manuel and Mrs. Luz Chavez, who prepare and celebrate our infant baptisms all year round.
We are very grateful to all those who work so hard to make our parish liturgies beautiful. We thank our Altar Servers, Sacristans, Lectors, Ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, Cantors, Musicians and Choirs, as well as our Liturgy Committee chaired by John Hammerbacher and our Liturgical Environment Committee led by Karen Keller assisted by Maria Luisa Medina.
Finally, we thank all those who contribute toward the beautiful flowers in our church this season, and we remember their deceased loved ones in a special way.
As those early disciples rushed to the empty tomb, may we hurry to be witness to the Good News that Jesus lives among us and within us.
Father Austin Doran
At this Mass the People, Priests, Deacons, and Religious gather with Archbishop Gomez to
celebrate as the Catholic people of Los Angeles. During the Mass, the Holy Oils are blessed and distributed to all the parishes. Another highlight of this Mass is that the priests of the
Archdiocese of Los Angeles renew their vows of obedience and their commitment to serve God’s people.
Since parking in the Cathedral garage is limited, everyone is encouraged to carpool. Also, it is highly recommended that you arrive at the Cathedral by 5:30 p.m. so that way you can park in the Cathedral garage. All of our parishioners are invited to attend. It will be a holy moment and a great experience for you. For more information about the Chrism Mass visit www.olacathedral.org.
