Santa Isabel aims for 100% participation!
Three parishes prepare for Commitment Weekend
We send our best wishes to Mission San Buenaventura, San Antonio de Padua, and St. Bernadette as they embark on the first of two Commitment Weekends. All three parishes have done a tremendous job and have exceeded their standard Campaign goals. We are very thankful for the parish leadership and volunteers who are carrying out this endeavor with open hearts. We look forward to sharing the results with everyone next week!
Our Lady of Guadalupe (Rose Hill) breaks $200,000!
Our Lady of Guadalupe (Rose Hill) in Los Angeles crossed the $200,000 mark this week! To date, Our Lady of Guadalupe has raised $201,910, or 75% of their goal. Fr. Nelson Trinidad, Dcn. Tom Bradlin, and the Campaign Executive Committee (CEC) are grateful to the 45 families who have already committed to the Campaign. With Commitment Weekend in two weeks and receptions after every Mass this weekend, Fr. Nelson is praying not only to reach their goal, but go above and beyond their goal!
Santa Isabel in Los Angeles is currently at 145% of goal and is maintaining their success. The Campaign Executive Committee (CEC) and additional Ambassadors will be setting up an informational booth outside of Mass this weekend to give all parishioners the opportunity to learn more about the Campaign and prayerfully consider making a pledge. Fr. Jesus Herrera appreciates the enthusiastic response from parishioners and strives for 100% participation from his parishioners. We wish the CEC and Ambassadors success this weekend!
St. Mary in Palmdale finds success in bible study group!
Jesus Nazareno is a Spanish-speaking prayer group that meets weekly at St. Mary’s Church in Palmdale. Over 50 families gather, some of whom drive over an hour to attend, and the meetings are filled with live music, guest speakers, and a family-friendly atmosphere. This week, Fr. Vaughn Winters, Dcn. Elvys Perez, and parishioner Irma Rodriguez spoke at the gathering to discuss Called to Renew
and how important the Campaign will be to the future of St. Mary’s. By the end of the night, St. Mary’s had raised $25,000! Congratulations, Fr. Vaughn and the group!

The CEC will also be offering information about the Campaign after Mass and inviting families to the Campaign Dinner, which will take place the following Saturday. We thank the parishioners at St. Vincent de Paul for sharing their stories and their dedication to the Campaign!
