Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Peter’s.


Thank you for your support and prayers. Summer is almost here and I want to thank all those who have supported me in these three months as the Administrator of St Peter’s Italian Church. I want to commend the welcoming and warm embrace you have shown me as your new Parish leader. During summer I wish you may have time to take a merited vacation with your family. For those who are staying, we have a full schedule of activities that will give you the opportunity to stay in touch and support your Parish.


Our website is kept updated every week. Let us know how we could improve it.


Don’t forget to participate in the yearly Diocesan campaign “Together in Mission.” If you have not done so it is not too late to help us to reach our goal of $ 8,909.00. Let us show that our Parish is capable of fulfilling the Diocesan expectation for Parish!


I ask you to keep on praying because our faith is in the news spotlight. The Catholic Church is definitely being persecuted and I implore all of you to be united with your priests at this time. A few weeks ago, a law in California, SB 360, was voted on requiring the priest to reveal and break the seal of confession. If the proposed law passes The House and is signed by the Governor, all priest would have to disclosure the information of a confession if the priest is interrogated by the authorities. My dear parishioners, stand with us against it and make your voice heard to your State elected official. Otherwise, your priest will be in jail because “we cannot break the seal of confession”. That is sacred, a vow we promised God to keep in the day of our priesthood ordination. 


As you know, the Catholic Church is very committed to protecting children. Therefore, I invite all those who volunteer, serve or are part of the staff of St Peter’s and San Conrado to renew your certification requirements for the program “Protecting God’s Children”. On August 4, 2019 our Church will conduct a certification course in English and Spanish. This is mandatory for lectors, extraordinary ministers of communion, catechists, ushers, staff and all those involved in volunteer services. Help St. Peter’s to protect our children.


Following is the schedule of the summer opportunities to come together at St. Peter’s for our feast days and social activities. Our Parish brunches are very popular. Join us for a good affordable lunch and fun. For reservation, please call the contact persons listed below. When paying for tickets, please write your check payable to CASA ITALIANA.

The  Parish of St. Peter was founded in the year 1904 to care for the spiritual and social needs of Italian immigrants who came to America in search of religious, social, and economic freedom.


Today,  through  liturgical, educational and social programs, St. Peter’s Italian Church in Los Angeles continues the mandate given to the Missionaries of St. Charles by their founder Blessed John Baptist Scalabrini to care for all migrants as  they journey toward the Kingdom of God.
