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.

The prayer of the lowly pierces the clouds;

nor will it withdraw till the Most High responds.

Effective January 2017, we will no longer be providing annual candles. There is only one service provider, and they have been extremely unreliable and quite costly. The current annual candles will stay lit through the end of this year.
You may pick up your personalized placque from the church office beginning in January 2017.
Of course, you are most welcome to use the three candle stations to say a prayer and light a candle.
Please call our office if you have any questions.

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.
