A Message from Fr. Dave Regarding
his Term Limit and our New Pastor

"As you know, my twelve year term limit as Pastor of St. Paschal's will come to a close on July 1st.  After which, I will have a ONE YEAR Book-Writing Sabbatical period for the purpose of researching, writing and publishing several practical "How-to" type manuals for priests.  For example, I will write a book on how to develop a University Series Adult Education program, as well as a "Best-Practices" manual for new Pastors. This is a much longer sabbatical period than is usually granted for priests in special assignments so I am grateful for the extra time to complete these useful projects. I can find my own living quarters, but it will probably be in a Rectory near one of our Universities, such as USC or Loyola Marymount.  The Holy Land Archaeological Tours will still continue every year as usual.  After the sabattical, I will be reassigned to another parish as normal.  In the meantime, I am here until July 1st!"

The new Pastor is Fr. Michael Rocha, presently Pastor at St. Mark's in Venice Beach.

Come and spend an hour with the Lord

"My soul thirsts for You, My Lord"

Our 24 hour Adoration Chapel is a place to meet Jesus in the peace and quiet of your heart.  Reserve your appointment with Jesus by contacting Dan & Linda at 805-492-6618.

"As we come to the Eucharist and recieve the "bread of heaven," let us continue to remember that God is involved in our everyday life, equipping us to get through whatever needs to be endured. When things seem to be unraveling around the edges, let the Holy Spirit guide you step by step and know that the light of Jesus shines on you continually. "- Friar Joe Scerbo, S.A.

"The chapel is a peaceful place to contemplate the presence of God.  It's a place where we are likely to hear God's will for us, to find the direction our life needs, to experience God's love, and to return to our world renewed and refreshed." - Fr. Dave Heney
