  • This was our first time attending Mass in the new Church---beautiful! A contemporary Church that kept the prior "Circle".....but with pews with kneelers and an amazing Baptismal font and murals. We ar...  more »

  • My wife and I have celebrated Easter Sunday services here over the years. The evening service on Saturday night is soul-stirring as you walk through a candlelit labyrinth. It's definitely a grounding ...  more »

  • Revisited this community to see if they have gotten better than the 1970's style of worship they exhibited years ago. Still very liberal and modernists parish. Terrible music! Certainly not Catholic music. Not for true seekers of real Catholicism. They are closer to Episcopalians or Methodists in ethos. They make their own hosts which is fine. Years ago they had invalid matter for the Eucharist but have come around to using valid matter again. Very not Catholic experience.
  • Wonderful and spiritual place. Even for non Catholics
  • If you're looking for a place to go and contemplate, pray or just enjoy nature,this is a great place to do just that. The people are very nice and respectful, there is a wonderful labyrinth to walk and if you get thirsty there is water fountains and soda machines!
  • Welcoming and proudly slightly weird (for a Catholic place). The congregation really care about being welcoming. They regularly have classes and retreats throughout the year, just check their website. They have lovely walking paths on the large desert acreage here. Walk the labyrinth, sit and think or pray, it's a beautiful place to be. Currently undergoing a huge renovation (so they can fit in more people).
  • It's wonderful because absolutely everyone is welcome there and you feel it.
