With God, All Things Are Possible

URGENT: The Department of Homeland Security has warned us of planned vandalism and worship disruptions due to the Supreme Court abortion ruling. If you see someone taking part in vandalism, or interrupting our church services, please call 911 immediately. Both behaviors are crimes in California, and we are in dialog with our local police department to keep our people and buildings safe.

How to get on Father Brown’s email list:

Use the link above to register officially as a member of the parish, AND provide an updated email address. Be sure to check your spam folder so you will get news each month from the pastor about events, scheduling, etc. (Each time I use our computer system to email our members, only about HALF of the people registered receive the email. In some cases, they don’t do email; in other cases, their email address is obsolete.)

Archdiocesan Annual Appeal 2022

As of June 28, we have received $52,031 toward our goal for this year’s Annual Appeal of $71,805.00 (which is $4,441.00 less than last year).

I donated one thousand dollars to the AAA as I do each year, because I know firsthand how much the ADSF helps us, especially when we need guidance in terms of human resource, legal assistance, or training for safety. If you can, please match my gift, or exceed it. Every dollar we raise in excess of our goal comes back to us: we intend to use that overage to fund maintenance on our beloved parish church, built back in 1908. To learn more, or to donate to the parish goal, please go here. Be sure to select “St. Anselm” from the dropdown list of churches. Thank you for your support! Father Brown
