Welcome to Our Lady of Refuge Parish!





No matter what school your children attend, please help by filling out this survey

The LA Archdiocese wants to hear your opinions on the education

This is NOT just for Catholic school parents, but for ALL parents... your input is most appreciated!

Celebrating the Season of Lent

February 14th through March 28th

We are a Roman Catholic faith community in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.  As a parish family we strive to continue the work of Christ by proclaiming and living the Gospel, celebrating the Eucharist and Sacraments, and sharing God’s love through lives of prayer, service and stewardship.  We invite you to join our parish community!

This Week in the Parish Highlight

Lenten Fish Fry is back!  Every Friday during Lent

5:30 pm to 8:00 pm in the Cafeteria

Fridays during Lent all Catholics are required to abstain from meat, so why not join your parish family at our annual Fish Fry dinner.  Dine-in our take-out.  Beverages and Deserts $1 extra each.

Proceeds go to support Our Lady of Refuge Catholic School

Together in Mission kicks off this weekend

"Let us love" is the theme for this year's Together in Mission Campaign

This Archdiocesian program helps those parishes and schools that need financial support.

Gift of a Lifetime Campaign is underway!

A Catholic education is the Gift of a Lifetime... but some families have a hard time paying tuition.  Our annual Gift of a Lifetime campaign allows OLR to offer tuition assistance to those most in need.  But just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a parish to support a school... so please give generously this year!
