From The Pastor

                                             

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to St. Bede Parish.

I extend a warm welcome to newcomers and visitors.

If you are a parishioner, I hope that you will find the information that you need, in order to become more fully engaged in the life of our family of Faith.  If you are a visitor, I hope you will find our website to be a reflection of this wonderful parish and that through this site you will be drawn more deeply into life in Christ, through our parish community. Here you will find a wealth of information about parish life, ministries, organizations, and service opportunities.

With coronavirus (Covid-19) in our midst, we face a difficult and confusing time and we do so with great uncertainty of what lies ahead.  It is an unsettling time for most of us. As your pastor, I would like to suggest we seize the opportunity to strengthen our faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ and adhere to the guidelines given by the state of California, the Center for Disease Control and our own Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

May I suggest our best defense is praying and keeping our faith, working together, following the advice of the experts and not letting fear and panic take over our lives. Above all, we need to remember that our Lord Jesus never abandons us as He is our shepherd. 

I assure you of my prayers in this difficult time. We are in a very uncertain time where the landscape is changing frequently.  I urge you to be attentive to changes. Archbishop Gomez sent out an email letter highlighting the actions that are being taken within the Archdiocese to protect parishioners during this medical crisis.  

Keep in mind that I urge your prayers and vigilance in doing whatever you can to protect the public health and keep our families and neighbors safe from harm.  This is an ever changing situation and I will keep you advised as the requirements change either through the bulletin, Constant Contact emails, the parish website (www.bede.org) or our social media sites.

During this time, our older parishioners and/or those whose health is compromised may need additional support.  I urge us all to be ready to help with the needed assistance such as shopping, etc.  If you need help or know someone who does, please contact the Parish Center. 

Please do not hesitate to call or contact us in the Parish Office at 818-949-4300.  Our Parish Staff and Clergy are here to serve you and your family.
