St. Lawrence of Brindisi, Los Angeles, CA
The friars have served at St. Lawrence Parish since 1923. Although the area is poor, the people are rich in faith and they and the friars work together to give hope and help to many in Los Angeles. The ministry of St. Lawrence reaches out to the entire community, and the friars are well-known and respected for their love of the people here.

St. Francis told us to love and serve the church. One of the ways the friars do this is to serve the people of God as priests and brothers working in parishes. There are presently three parishes staffed by the Capuchin Franciscans in Western America: Our Lady of Angels Parish in Burlingame, California; Mission Santa Inés in Solvang, California, and St. Lawrence Parish in Watts (Los Angeles), California, and a friar serves as pastor of Our Lady of Fatima Byzantine Catholic Church in San Francisco. Other friars also assist local parishes by celebrating masses and other sacraments.
