Registering in a parish is a declaration of your desire to part of a Catholic Community and a commitment to the life of the parish family.
Being a registered parishioner makes things much easier when it is time for infant baptism, school registration, weddings, upon being asked to be a baptismal or confirmation sponsor, and even for funerals.
We are often asked to provide affidavits for baptism and confirmation sponsors. We can only do this when a family or each person is registered, active, and a contributing member of our parish.
If you wish to register with our parish family, please call the Parish Office at (310) 323-0030 or stop by the office to complete a registration form.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support of our church. We have allowed a bit more time for those who need to pay off their balances for their personalized bricks. Also, there is also a small window of time to order a new personalized brick. Please call or email our Parish Office for more information.
Next steps and anticipated timeline:
1. Cost & Time Estimates: Cost estimates are in process. It will take about 10 weeks to receive the bricks once ordered.
2. Brick Engraving Confirmation: Over the next few weeks, we will be asking you to confirm your brick engraving (to ensure accuracy).
3. Brick Orders: No bricks have been ordered, as there are still 35 families with balances. We are planning on ordering soon.
4. Late Summer 2016: Targeted completion.
Please call the office if you have questions at (310) 323-0030.

We, the People of God, under the patronage of Maria Regina, Queen of Heaven and Earth, are called to be disciples of Jesus Christ in this time and in this place. As members of the Body of Christ we gather to worship at the Altar of the Lord in Word and Eucharist, in which we are nourished. From here we go forth as disciples in the power of the Holy Spirit to make the Good News of Jesus Christ alive in our world.
