Following the example set by Jesus, baptism initiates an individual into the Christian community and confers sanctifying grace upon a soul, purifying it with water and sealing it with holy chrism. If you or your child would like to begin your Christian life as part of our community please contact us and let us know.
Let's start by acknowledging that we all sin. Everyone makes mistakes… Jesus established this beautiful sacrament to wash us of our guilt and restore us through his love. Acknowledging our sins before a priest puts us in the presence of Christ himself and allows us to be reconciled to God and to one another no matter the severity of our mistakes. Forgiveness is available to all of us. If you're in need of Christ's forgiveness, please reach out to us and arrange a time to meet with a priest. If you have a child ready for first Reconciliation, let us know.
Listening to Jesus' command to "Do this in remembrance of me," first Communion / Holy Eucharist unites an individual to God and the Catholic faithful through the reception of Our Lord at Mass. The Eucharist brings us into one body and provides the graces to love and serve God and each other more faithfully, fulfilling Jesus' prayer to the Father: "I wish that they might all be one as you and I are one." If you have a child who is ready for first Communion or if you'd like to begin the process to receive Communion, please contact us.

Confirmation finishes the rites of initiation started in baptism, sacramentally bringing a candidate into full communion with the Catholic faithful. Like the apostles at Pentecost, Confirmation anoints a person in a special way with the Holy Spirit. In the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Confirmation occurs around the age of 15 and generally takes two years of preparation. At St. Blessed's, our Confirmation students meet from October through April after our 10am Sunday Mass. If your child is ready for Confirmation, or if you haven't been confirmed yet and would like to be, please get in touch with us.
Mondays 12:00n - 06:00pm

Beginning the month of June
Engagement and Marriage is such a blessed time in a couple's life! Just as Jesus blessed the couple at Cana with his presence elevating marriage to a sacrament, he will bless you and your spouse for life through a Catholic marriage. If you'd like to get married at St. Blessed's, would like support during your engagement, or would like to speak with a priest about your current marital status in the Church, please let us know.
Annointing of the Sick
God has established a sacrament for healing in illness (both physical and spiritual) and preparation for death and entrance into new life in heaven. If you or a loved one is sick or dying and would like to receive special sacramental prayers and anointing, please contact us and be assured of our prayers with you and for you in this time.
God calls all people to serve him through a particular vocation in life, be it marriage, consecration to a particular community as a lay person, or ministry as a priest, deacon, or religious Brother or Sister. If you feel God is calling you to serve as a priest, deacon, or religious, please reach out to our Vocations office at http://lavocations.org.
