Parish Needs


Worship Environment and the ongoing “Sight and Sound” Initiative

Removing the carpeting in the sanctuary to reveal the terrazzo flooring will eliminate the visual break from the assembly to the altar. Repairing and restoring our historic pipe organ, which was originally installed at Hollywood’s Grauman’s Theater in the 1920s and ‘30s and gifted to our community in 1958, will again fill our worship environment with the musical majesty the renowned Wurlitzer pipe organ can provide.


St. Finbar School

Finbar School was voted Burbank’s best private school again in 2018. Updating our school campus with an expansive, modern entrance will befit the school’s grand tradition of providing an impactful and transformational Catholic education experience while enhancing campus security and providing much-needed meeting space. We will also update all of the restrooms while making other necssary infrastructure improvements.


Holy Spirit Center

Creating a fine arts center in the Holy Spirit Center with music and media arts will provide a gathering place where children and adults can experience and explore all the humanities have to offer. We will also equip the facility with the resources to webcast our popular and powerful Seeker Sessions, along with other programming, to audiences around the world.

Our Faith Center

Among the most impactful improvements to our community has been the opening of our adoration chapel in the Faith Center, which is now the center for faith formation for elementary through high school students. Expanding the adoration chapel to include an outdoor meditation garden for prayer and small group sessions will support the ongoing spiritual development of our faith community.

A Bold Plan of Renewal

We — the Catholic faithful — are the agents of renewal for Church and society. I am grateful for this opportunity to walk alongside clergy and parishioners in strengthening our parishes and ministries, the heart of our Archdiocese.
Archbishop José H. Gomez
