Message from our Pastor

Dear Parishioners and friends of St. Peter’s,

The past few weeks have brought sudden changes in our lives. COVID-19 has spread quickly, and has caused major disruptions to the normal life and employment of our families. Fr. Raniero and I are in communion with your suffering and united in prayer. Like you, at this time, our priority is the protection of our health and that of those around us, following the guidelines that we receive through civil and Archdiocese directives. 


In this hour of trial Jesus calls on us, his followers, to serve the common good by taking responsibility for each other and prioritizing the most vulnerable in our community, ahead of our own individual wants and aspirations.


Moreover, the “coronavirus experience” at home is an opportunity to reflect on our mortality and lifestyle. Are there people and things that we have been taking for granted?  Have we been “postponing” our responsibilities toward God, our family and community? This crisis, like every other, will eventually come to an end, but we need to plan now what kind of life we want to live after the storm is passed. 

As we are able, we will live stream Thursday adoration with the rosary and Sunday mass.


You may send your prayer requests to: stpeterprayerrequest@yahoo.com.  

Fr. Raniero and I will add them to our daily prayers.


When, in the not distant future, we return to the pews of our church to celebrate Mass together again, we will remember that Sunday Mass is not merely an obligation but a joyful blessing and privilege! 

My wish for you is to be safe and healthy, and to look forward to our next celebration of the risen Lord! 


May God bless you, your family and all your dear ones.

Fr. Louis Piran, c.s.

ARCHDIOCESE SUSPENSION OF MASSES AMID COVID-19 Pandemic. /

Additional Information

 The Archdiocese of Los Angeles announced this afternoon the suspension of Masses amid the current health threat due to COVID-19 (novel coronavirus).“I deeply regret that we are forced to temporarily suspend public celebration of the Mass in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles,” said Archbishop José H. Gomez. “What we do in the Church, we do out of love for God and love for our brothers and sisters. We are taking this extraordinary step today out of love and concern for those in our families and communities who are most vulnerable to this deadly coronavirus.” 


 Archbishop Gomez stressed that the decision was “not made lightly,” and that it was made after “much prayer and reflection” and in consultation with the Archdiocese’s auxiliary bishops, Council of Priests, lay advisors, and government and public health officials.“I ask your continued prayers for all those who are afflicted with this virus and those who are afraid and vulnerable. I also ask you to pray and reach out to help the many families who are facing difficulties as a result of this emergency. We also need to keep in our prayers all the doctors, nurses, caregivers, and public health and civil authorities working to contain the outbreak of this virus and treat those who are sick,” stated the Archbishop. Catholics are encouraged to continue to pray at home with their families and join to the sacrifice of the Mass by making an act of spiritual communion.  They are also encouraged to participate in the Holy Mass via the Internet. 


The Archdiocese will provide a livestream of non-public Masses from the Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels daily and on Sunday via Facebook, @lacatholics, (facebook.com/lacatholics/) or visit lacatholics.org/emergency/. The daily Mass (M-F) in English at 12:10 p.m. and the Sunday Masses in English at 10 a.m. and in Spanish at 12:30 p.m. will be livestreamed. # # #

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.
