Farewell Fr. David Ochoa Our Archbishop Cardinal Roger Mahony has decided to transfer Fr. David Ochoa to St. Matthias Parish in Huntington Park. St. Matthias is a big Hispanic parish and this year they lost two priests, and so there is a necessity to send Fr. David to help in the ministry of this parish. All changes are difficult for the priest and for the community but in this time of shortage of priests we are called to make sacrifices. We thank God for Fr. David Ochoa who has been a blessing to our parish. We pray for him that God may bless him in his new parish. Fr. David will begin his service as of July 1, 2010. Parish office and center will be CLOSED on Monday, May 31, 2010 due to the Memorial Day holiday. We will have only a 9:30am concelebrated mass on this day. Regular office an mass times will resume on Tuesday, June 1st. Registrations for 1st & 2nd year First Communion and Confirmation 1 & 2 will begin on Wednesday, May 12, 2010. Please pick up a registration form which includes the requirements and application. Did You Know? Helpful Tips for Childproofing Your Home Though we often think of babies and toddlers when we hear the words "baby proofing" or "childproofing," unintentional injury is the leading cause of death in kids 14 years old and under, with more than a third of these injuries happening at home. Have you removed the rubber tips from all doorstops? Have you checked that all used or hand-me-down baby equipment hasn’t been recalled? For helpful checklists on how to make your home safer for your young children, please visit: and click on “First Aid & Safety.” For particular help, you may call Assistance Ministry at 213 637 7650.

FACILITY USE & RESERVATIONS at IHMC Parish organizations or anyone planning to use any of the Parish facilities must fill out the facility request form in the parish office and get it approved before making further plans. Turning in an application does not necessarily mean you can begin using the room. A representative from the main office will call to confirm your approval. Any schedule or room changes must also be approved.

Pautas para Asegurar su Hogar para los Niños A pesar que uno piensa automáticamente de niños pequeñitos cuando se habla de asegurar el ambiente domestico para los niños (“childproofing”), accidentes son la mayor razón de las muertes de jóvenes de 14 años de edad o menos, y más de una tercera parte de esto ocurre en casa propia. ¿Ya removió las puntas de hule de la cuñas de sus puertas? ¿Ya comprobó si los juguetes de años pasados no han sido declarados peligrosos? Para estas listas de información útil para la seguridad de sus niños en su hogar, por favor visite el sitio de web: y haga click en “First Aid & Safety” (Primeros Auxilios y Seguridad). Para obtener ayuda, llame a la Oficina del Ministerio de Ayuda al 213 637 7650.

Adios Padre David Nuestro Arzobispo, el Cardenal Rogelio Mahony ha tomado la decision de cambiar al Padre David Ochoa a la parroquia de San Matias en Huntington Park. San Matias es una parroquia hispana muy grande y este año perdieron dos sacerdotes y se ve la necesidad de mandar al Padre David a apoyar el ministerio en este parroquia. Todos los cambios son dificiles para el sacerdote y para comunidad pero en este tiempo de escazes de sacerdotes todos estamos llamados al sacrificio. Damos gracias a Dios por el Padre David ya que el ha sido una bendicion para nuestra comunidad. Pidamos por el para que Dios lo bendiga en su nueva parroquia. Padre David comenzara su servicio el 1 de Julio, 2010. QueensCare Health and Faith Partnership
