This church rivals any in the world. Attending a service is very special. A visit to look around will do as well. It is similar to churches in Italy. The acoustics are wonderful should you be lucky enough to hear a choir or organ concert.

A warm and friendly congregation in a historical and beautiful church. Tough to focus on the sermon due to the incredible architecture. Save time to wander and look after the Mass.

Beautiful church. It is usually open to the public and I recommend if you would like to observe the beautiful grounds. Not sure about service times.

My daughter got married at this church. The nearly year long protocol was a tad intensive. But the church is beautiful and its formally lent an air of seriousness and thoughtfulness to the marriage ceremony. The interiors are beautiful.

The marble pillars were beautiful. One of the oldest catholic churches in the L.A. area. Many mass time choices.

It is worth visiting just to see the columns in the interior. Fr. Paul is the Pastor and he is a great Catholic Priest who is very inviting and accommodating. Make sure you read how the columns were created.
