University Catholic Center

I'm New to University Catholic Center, UCLA. Where Do I Start?

Welcome to the Parish Community.

Welcome to the parish community! We’re so glad you’ve decided to join us. If you haven’t already, say hi to our parish priest, . He would love to meet you.

Doors are usually open early before Mass starts, and coffee is also available after the service so feel free to come up to any of our volunteers and introduce yourself. We have various ministries available in the parish so please don’t hesitate to ask any of our volunteers about ways to get connected.

Here at University Catholic Center we want to love God, to love one another, and to make the name of Jesus known.

Mass: What to Expect

If you have never been to Mass before, or if you haven’t gone in a long time, we are excited to have you join us as we celebrate and worship together.

We understand that it may feel foreign at first, and that some parts might seem confusing. The last thing we would want is for you to feel unwelcome during the service, so we have created a little guide for you to help you understand the liturgy a little better.

Why go to mass? Sacraments
