Greetings! Welcome to Queen of Angels Church website. It is my hope that your visit will help you get to know our parish and Catholic Faith a little better and also assist you in becoming an active member of this vibrant faith community in beautiful Alpine, California.
As our website indicates, Queen of Angels Church is blessed with several programs and faith formation activities which are necessary for people of various age groups to establish, grow, and deepen their faith in Jesus Christ. As Pastor, I am truly blessed to be a servant of this vibrant faith community, guiding people to grow in the faith to a greater experiential knowledge of Christ our Lord.
Our pilgrimage through life is filled with unknowns: joy and sorrow, success and failure; with all the ordinary and sometimes extraordinary events of life. At every stage The Church is there. For new life: Baptism. For forgiveness: Reconciliation. For strengthening: Confirmation. For nourishment: The Holy Eucharist. For love: Marriage. For sickness: Anointing with Oil. And finally, the funeral services of the Church offer the souls of the faithful departed prayers on the last leg of the journey, and to the living, a source of consolation and peace in the knowledge that Christ’s Resurrection is our own.
The Catechism of The Catholic Church teaches us that “Guarding the Deposit of Faith Is the Mission Which the Lord Entrusted to His Church, and which She fulfills in every age.” Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us His Apostolic Church so that we would have certitude about the reception of God’s Grace [Jn 20:22ff], and also, an infallible knowledge of Christian Faith and Morals [Jn 16:18]. As a Catholic Parish we wholeheartedly embrace the teaching of Sacred Scripture, the living Tradition in the Church, and the authentic teaching of the Bishops united with the Pope [Magisterium], as well as the spiritual heritage of the Fathers, Doctors, and saints of the Church, to allow for a better knowledge of the Christian mystery and for enlivening the faith of all the People of God.
As the entire Christian life is centered upon the Holy Eucharist as its source and summit, Queen of Angels Church endeavors to make the Liturgical Sacrifice of The Mass its central focus. We invite you to come and experience Catholic Faith and Life in its fullness at our parish.
May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God, and the Communion of the Holy Spirit be with you always! Fr Tim
Our Lord Jesus told his disciples, "Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these (Mt. 19:14)." We built this playground to welcome families with young children, as our Lord commanded. Children are encouraged to play here after Mass. Just be safe!
