Our physical address is 800 Beacon Street, at the northeast corner of Beacon St and Lower Terrace Road. The main sanctuary is located up the street from our tile sign, which is outside the parish hall and courtyard. The sanctuary is open to the public for quiet prayer and visitation from 7:30am to 6:00pm daily. The sanctuary is opened before daily Mass and a daily rosary in English, and is locked at night by our Spanish rosary group after their evening rosary around 6pm. Exception is Sunday night, when the Spanish Mass takes place until 7:30pm, and any other Masses throughout the year that occur later than 6:00pm.

Attending Mass with us:
We celebrate the Roman Catholic Mass in alignment with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. All of our Masses are held in Novus Ordo, as is our community's desire. We do not offer any traditional Latin Masses at this time.
> We encourage walking and car-pooling as much as possible due to limited parking at and around the church. Please be mindful of nearby residents and city regulations about vehicle parking.
> Parking is available on Beacon St. in front of the church, and in the back parking lot of the church. PLEASE do not block any exits, pathways, or driveways. The side parking lot is not available until further notice.
> We request members of the congregation to turn their cell phones on silent mode or off while attending Mass. During visits outside of Mass, please maintain reverence and be mindful of other visitors using the peace and quiet for prayer and reflection.
> When you enter, feel free to pick up a copy of our Parish bulletin. During most weekend Masses, we have an usher who may offer you one. For those who may be "rusty" with the order of the Mass, the front entrance also has printed pamphlets for you to follow along, if needed. Please help us save paper and return them when finished.
> Lost and found items are usually turned in to the sacristy. Please contact the parish priest or a parish volunteer to retrieve a lost item. If you return outside of Mass times, please call the church phone number to get access to the lost & found.
> After the 9:00AM Sunday Mass, we welcome you to join us for coffee, juice, and light snacks in the courtyard provided by our volunteers. A donation jar is usually set up and all monies go directly to supporting parish operations. If it is raining after Mass, the get-together is usually moved inside the Parish Hall.
Restrooms are located next to the parish hall, on the opposite side of the courtyard from the main church building. Restrooms are reserved for those attending church functions only. They are locked at night outside of church operating hours.
Also take a minute to check out the Art & Architecture section of the website for explanations and descriptions of the various mosaics, stained glass, statues, oratories, and other works of art around our parish.
