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.
To ensure our parish family is strong and vibrant for future generations, SS. Peter and Paul is participating, alongside our sister parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, in the Called to Renew campaign. I am excited to invite you to be a part of this initiative to strengthen parishes and elevate ministries of our Archdiocese.
Our parish exists because of your generosity. I am amazed at how our parishioners have worked together to meet needs that arise. Together, we
continue to create an inspiring community here at SS. Peter and Paul, a beacon of Christ’s love in the South Bay.
Called to Renew gives us a tremendous opportunity to come together as an archdiocesan family to serve our local Church alongside our brothers and sisters across Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. This is truly an extraordinary opportunity to live out our call to serve as His disciples!
Through Called to Renew, the SS. Peter and Paul community will be able to address our parish’s most pressing needs. Through much prayer, meetings and consultation, we have decided to refinish our church pews, purchase a new organ and improve our parish hall kitchen. You can find further details about these projects on the following page.
Please take a moment to review the impact Called to Renew will have on our parish and across the Archdiocese of Los Angeles — ultimately affecting over 5 million of your brothers and sisters for generations to come. This campaign has my full support. As your pastor, I hope you will embrace this opportunity for our parish.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
Purchase of a New Church Organ
Music is essential to worship here at SS. Peter and Paul. After many years, our organ requires significant maintenance and restoration. We will replace our organ with a new instrument that will complement our celebrations for many more generations to come.
Parish Hall Kitchen Renovations
Community and celebration are essential to parish life. Our parish hall kitchen is greatly limited for food preparation and safety. Remodeling this kitchen with new exhaust fans and equipment, and restructuring the space to meet city requirements, will enable us to prepare the great food our parishioners have grown to love.
Refinish Church Pews and New Kneelers
Our church is one of the most beautiful in Los Angeles. From our pews, we hear God’s Word and participate in many parish celebrations of the Mass and other devotions. After years of usage by thousands of people each week, our pews are in need of professional refinishing and our kneelers must be replaced.
Future Maintenance Fund
A rainy-day fund will ensure we are able to meet future maintenance or emergency funding needs should they arise.
