All Nationalities are welcome and all Italians may consider St. Peter's their parish.
St. Peter's Italian Church is the National Italian parish for Southern California. It was established as a mission church for the spiritual assistance of the Italian people in the spring of 1904.
Throughout the years, St. Peter's has been a home for many where they could experience comfort, guidance, enlightenment, and family life in a true spirit of welcome and togetherness as well as celebrating the sacraments with much faith in the spirit of their culture and traditions.
As a Catholic parish we are committed to value our historical heritage, to nurture the faith of God's people by serving the Italian population and, in a universal spirit, continue embracing all those who wish to come and celebrate with us their faith as a true Christian family.
