The Archdiocese of Los Angeles announced on March 24, 2020 to close the church, and continue the suspension of Masses, amid the current health threat due to COVID-19
Updated on March 26, 2020
“I deeply regret that we are forced to temporarily suspend public celebration of the Mass in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. What we do in the Church, we do out of love for God and love for our brothers and sisters. We are taking this extraordinary step today out of love and concern for those in our families and communities who are most vulnerable to this deadly coronavirus.”
