Visiting the sick is one of the corporal works of mercy. Praying for the sick is a wonderful action of kindness. We wish to respect our brothers and sisters who are sick by praying for them. The one who is ill or one who is able to speak on behalf of the one who is ill must ask to have a name placed in the bulletin. We also wish periodic updates. After three months on this list it is reasonable that the person has improved and the name no longer present. If the prayers for the person need to be renewed please call the Parish Center.

 We would like to bring Holy Communion to our sick and homebound. Please call the Parish Center at 818-784- 0105 and leave your name and phone number. We can then connect to our sick and recovering and homebound and bring them the Lord Jesus in Holy Communion.

Thank you for your

Dear Friends in Christ,

     This July 1, I will be moving from residence here at SFDS where I have lived for the past three and a half years. First, of I want to express my sincere appreciation to Fr. Mike for his hospitality that he has extended to me these past years. Likewise, I am grateful to the staff, parish and school lay leaders for their warmth and kindness shown to me as a resident priest here in the parish.

     Starting July 1, I will be assigned to Bishop Amat Memorial High School in La Puente as administrator, chaplain and faculty member. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with young people once again to share the Gospel and the faith of the Church with them. In addition, I will continue to teach Canon Law one day a week in the fall to our seminarians at St. John’s Seminary in Camarillo.

     Although I wish I could have done more to serve SFDS, I was very blessed to be able to minister sacramentally to the parish by celebrating an occasional weekday and Sunday Mass these past few years. Your faith and devotion to the Church was very encouraging. And I pray you continue to deepen your love for Our Lord, His Sacraments and share the faith of the Church with others.

     Please keep me in your prayers as I transition to my new work and that Our Lord equip me with the necessary gifts I will need to shepherd those entrusted to my pastoral care. And of course, I will keep you all close in prayer as well.

Blessings & Peace!

Fr. John G. Montejano

The Trump administration on Monday announced that it would begin implementing an expanded “Mexico City Policy,” which pro-life leaders hailed as a key step to curtailing abortion funding. The expansion means that more forms of foreign funding will be directed to organizations that do not perform or support abortions overseas. Entitled “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance,” the plan extends the ban on funding of abortion supporters to other forms of foreign aid like global health assistance. With the implementation of this program, we have officially ceased exporting abortion to foreign nations. Back in January, President Donald Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits U.S. funding of non-government organizations that perform or promote abortions through family-planning funds. This humane policy seeks to respect and protect the precious lives of unborn girls and boys from the violence of abortion.

-Matt Hadro-National Catholic Register


The best way of describing the experience of meditation is as a “returning to the center”, a coming home. This home is the Kingdom of Heaven -the kingdom within the heart of each of us, where His Spirit dwells in communion. We must make contact with this Spirit at the Heart of all creation – where All is One. This is wisdom. Discipline, focus and above all -we must, be silent – and then let go. This is the way to the center. Every WEDNESDAY at 7:00 PM we meet in the Parish Center. We welcome you to join us. All information about this Global Organization is on line at wccm.org.

Hit the park safely this summer

A great way to beat summer boredom is to head out to the park and play. For many parents, parks provide the space and place for children to play with others and burn off some energy by running around and exploring. However, even in your own neighborhood parks, parents should be vigilant, and should prepare children with basic safety guidelines. Go over the posted rules of the playground with your children, and make sure they understand the boundaries of where they can and cannot play. To request a copy of the VIRTUS® article “Playground Safety Considerations,” emailjvienna@la-archdiocese.org or call (213) 637-7227.


New parishioners, and/or parishioners wishing to update your registration information, may fill out this online form.

Your personalized envelopes will be mailed to you from the printing company in about 8 TO 12 weeks after your registration has been processed.

If you use the envelopes in the pews, please make sure that you mark your first and family name and your envelope number. Please inform the Parish Center of any changes, i.e., your address or e-mail so that we may keep our
