Our community is excited to participate alongside all parishes, missions and Catholic centers in the Archdiocese to strengthen and renew our Church for the future. Please continue reading to learn how this campaign will benefit us.
In 1927, when a handful of families sacrificed to establish Incarnation Catholic Church, they also blessed us with a legacy to build upon and celebrate.
Through God’s grace, we have grown from a small faith community into a large, welcoming, vibrant, and dynamic parish for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds to grow in their faith, serve others, and share the Good News as they connect with Christ, one another, and those in need.
We are now launching the Called to Renew Campaign alongside every parish in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and ask God to bless this ambitious effort. Our campaign will allow us to address the needs of Incarnation, ensuring future generations of parishioners may continue to gather, worship, and create lasting friendships.
We are at an exciting time to embark on this campaign, as we prepare to celebrate the 100th year anniversary of our parish five years from now!
The goal for our campaign is $1,105,000 of which 50% will remain at our parish to address the needs detailed on the following page.We will also retain 100% of the funds we collect over our goal. When we reach our campaign goal, we will receive a minimum of $552,500 to address our own parish needs.
I am asking you, and every member of our parish, to make a gift from the heart. As your pastor and fellow parishioner, I will also make a sacrificial pledge. Before you determine your pledge, please prayerfully consider the generosity God has shown you and the importance of the mission we have been given at Incarnation Catholic Church.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.

Refurbish Flooring and Paint Church
The beauty of our church is an essential part of Catholic liturgy. After 20 years of minimal upgrades, it is time to restore some of the beauty and luster of our church by refurbishing the terrazzo flooring and repainting.
After significant use over the years, the pews have lost its beauty, and many are cracking. We will refurbish the pews and fix the kneelers to provide a more comfortable worship space for all.
The lighting system in our church needs to be upgraded to current standards. We will upgrade our lighting to LED lights and/or other environmentally friendly, and efficient, light fixtures which will more efficiently highlight the beauty of our church.
Altar-Ambo & Baptismal Font Renovation
The altar and ambo need to be elevated to reflect the Body, Blood, and Word of God as being in our midst. The existing ambo is made from varnished white oak. More like a movable lectern, the ambo is unstable, so worn that it creeks. The existing altar matches the current ambo (as they go together, a complementary pair--as the Altar of the Word of God (ambo) and the Altar of the Body & Blood of Christ (Eucharistic Table). Hence, both need to be replaced in scale and correlation. A new ambo should harmonize with a new altar.
The original baptismal font in the baptistry has considerable history within our community. Relocating it to a transept would allow the community to continue to utilize the historical Baptismal Font for the next generation and restore the significance it has had in our parish.
