churchbulletin-353Whether you attend Mass regularly, are visiting from another parish or faith community, or if you’re looking to join or return to the Catholic Church, all are welcome. Please visit us this weekend at Mass.  

Our picturesque church located at 321 10th Street in the historical district of Huntington Beach CA was built in 1923. We are only three blocks from Pacific Coast Highway.  CLICK HERE for directions.

As Christian stewards, our mission is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people through word, sacrament, service, and community life. Getting involved is a key part of our faith. We encourage all of our parishioners to be active members of our faith community, helping others, and sharing our faith. We have a vibrant and prayerful parish with many opportunities for you to worship with us and to share our life in Christ.  CLICK HERE for our Ministry page to see how you can participate.
