Welcoming Returing & Inactive Catholics - If you are a Catholic who has been away from the church, know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. We would like to invite you to be an active part of the SSJ community.  The parish is offering Landings—a program that offers “a safe place to land,” a place for listening and for being heard, a place for asking questions, and for reconnecting with your faith as an adult.  An 8-week program is being offered on Thursday evenings starting after Labor Day from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the School Library.  For more information call Jeff Koch at (714) 377-2612 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
