 Dear   ,    
Happy New Year! May the Holy Spirit continue to warm our hearts, guide our steps, and empower us to be God's people in the world! Here are a couple of imminent opportunities in the new year.

With love in Christ,
Fr. Rob & Mo. Lyn+


Epiphany at Epiphany





This Sunday, January 4 at  4pm, we will have an opportunity to join our sister church of Epiphany, East LA in their Epiphany celebration. Great opportunity to visit our friends there, and see the wonderful work that has been accomplished in remodeling their church and parish hall. A time with our brother and sisters that is sure to feed the soul with Spirit and the tummy with tamales!


If you want to carpool, meet at the church at 2:30.
