• California's fast-tracked suicide bill sparks accusations of 'stage play'

    In the second attempt this year to establish a 'right-to-die' in the state of California, state Assembly lawmakers passed an assisted suicide bill on Wednesday, by a vote of 42-33. The bill now faces a vote in the state Senate.

  • Archbishop blesses mitres, crosiers and rings of new auxiliaries

    Archbishop José H. Gomez blessed the mitres, crosiers and rings of the three new Los Angeles auxiliary bishops during Solemn Vespers Sept. 7 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

  • Bishop David O’Connell: Following Francis’ example

    “I’m still trying to get my hands around this,” said newly-ordained Auxiliary Bishop David O’Connell five weeks after Pope Francis appointed him as a bishop to assist Archbishop José H. Gomez in Los Angeles.  



  • San Fernando Valley homecoming for Bishop Joseph V. Brennan

    His Bible is well-worn, the pages are soft with use and clear tape keeps the wobbly spine intact. It’s a prized possession owned for decades and probably one of the first items that newly ordained Auxiliary Bishop Joseph V. Brennan will take out of the boxes when he moves into his new office at the San Fernando Pastoral Region this month.

  • Three new auxiliary bishops ordained for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles

    Three new auxiliary bishops have been ordained to help shepherd the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the largest Church in the United States. Archbishop José H.

O’Connell to the episcopacy Sept. 8 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

  • Juan Diego House robust with seminarians

    GARDENA — In a way, Jaime Garnica, Juan Gutierrez, Rick Lee (California State University, Dominguez Hills) and William King (El Camino College) are average college students: young men navigating a challenging crossroads in their lives, discovering their passions and studying in preparation for their coming days in “the real world.”



  • ‘Don’t kill grandma’

    PASADENA — Joseph Domingo is only 11, but he knows the lethal consequences if California legislators pass the proposed assisted suicide bill, AB2X 15, successor of SB 128, the “End of Life Option Act.”

  • Circle V Camp: Bringing nature — and God — to kids

    Sleepy-eyed campers and slightly-more-awake counselors and CILTs (Counselors In Leadership Training) headed down the sloping, drought-dry campground to the outdoor chapel on this overcast summer Thursday morning. Before 8 o’clock, the campers were sitting down on Monterey-pine benches, facing a sycamore altar and the 8-foot-high redwood cross behind it. Gnarly lumps of coast live oaks, some older than 100 years, almost seemed to be reaching out to the young congregation gathered for post-sunrise praise.

  • Our Lady of the Angels, pray for us

    Thousands flocked to the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Downtown Los Angeles the afternoon of Aug. 29 for a grand celebration — featuring Aztec and Chinelo dancers adorned in colorful intricate regalia, Knights of Columbus and other Catholic fraternal organizations, as well as Angelenos of all ages — in observance of the 234th birthday of the City of Los Angeles, originally christened El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de Los Angeles de Porciúncula.
