WELCOME TO OUR CHURCH!

St. Peter Claver Catholic Church

Our Church

We, the parish family of Saint Peter Claver, are a Catholic faith community within the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and the Universal Church. Firm in the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and inspired by the example of our patron, we proclaim the kingdom of God to embrace everyone in love without discrimination of any kind. We are devoted to worship, to witness, and joyful service in the Spirit.

Many of our children will be returning to school this month.  As they start a new school year, let us pray that the Holy Spirit will remain close to them as their guide and protector.

PARISH BULLETINS

LET US TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT ON THIS COMING WEEKEND'S READINGS

August 14, 2022
Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Then the king ordered Ebed-melech the Cushite
to take three men along with him,
and draw the prophet Jeremiah out of the cistern before
he should die.
Jeremiah 38:10

For the sake of the joy that lay before him
he endured the cross, despising its shame,
and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God.
Consider how he endured such opposition from sinners,
in order that you may not grow weary and lose heart.
In your struggle against sin
you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood.
Hebrew 12:2-4

Jesus said to his disciples:
"I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!
There is a baptism with which I must be baptized,
and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!
Luke 12:49-50

Ways Children Go Missing

Did You Know?

According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, there are a few significant ways that children go missing. Nearly half of all families with autistic children have reported that their children wander and have gone missing. Other ways include abduction, either by a stranger or family members, and child sex trafficking. Parents need to be aware of warning signs and know how to take action. For information, request a copy of the VIRTUS® article, “Ways Children Go Missing,” at lacatholics.org/did-you-know/.
