Welcome to the St Francis of Assisi Roman Catholic Community. We are located near downtown Los Angeles in the Silver Lake area. Our community comprises of a Church and School (TK-8). We are an international community and masses are held in English and Spanish. The community is influenced by its Patron St. Francis of Assisi and his charism is a part of our daily life.
As Catholics, in a community of many cultures, we are called to be followers of Christ, ministering to others in service, love and prayer. In the spirit of Saint Francis of Assisi, we strive to be a caring and evangelizing community focused on the Holy Eucharist.
We affirm our faith, according to our Judeo-Christian tradition. Our faith comes from God’s call to Abraham, our father in faith, to form a people of God and He continues to call us to work for the Kingdom.
In the spirit of St. Francis, with his Christ-centered vision and cosmic experience, we begin to experience that all things and all human beings are brothers and sisters, through the transforming love that God revealed in Jesus Christ.
We welcome into our Catholic community, which is the new people of God, all who have the desire to create a better world and experience the transformation of a cosmic experience, despite life’s multiple difficulties.
With the hope of the risen Christ we can overcome all evil through the Eucharistic celebrations until we are able to participate fully in the feast in the Kingdom of God.
