A favorite biblical verse: “Caritas Christi urget nos” - “The love of Christ urges us on.”
You are invited to join us for our Magnificat special guest speaker, Auxiliary Bishop, Joseph V. Brennan and hear his vocation testimony at our upcoming Magnificat prayer meal on Saturday, August 13.
Nearly one year ago, Archbishop Jose Gomez appointed Bishop Brennan as the Episcopal Vicar to lead the faith of more than one million Catholics in the San Fernando Pastoral Region. With offices adjacent to the Mission, Bishop Brennan oversees 55 parishes and schools in the San Fernando, Santa Clarita, and Antelope Valleys.
Bishop Brennan is a native son. He was born in Van Nuys in 1954 and grew up in the local area. After his ordination to the priesthood, Bishop Brennan served as associate pastor at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Los Angeles, St. Linus in Norwalk and at the Cathedral of St. Vibiana in Los Angeles. Later on, he was a pastor at St. Linus in Norwalk, and Holy Trinity in San Pedro. After becoming Moderator of the Curia, he was in residence at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels and at Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church.
Bishop Brennan has worked tirelessly for building an educated faith community and sits on the Board of the Catholic Education Foundation. His outreach to the poor has led him to serve on the Board of Together in Mission, the archdiocese special fund that supports struggling parishes or older churches in need of repair.
Bishop Brennan is also known for his gifted singing voice. He is often heard performing at parish and holiday functions and can be seen on YouTube. If the Spirit moves him, perhaps Bishop Brennan will sing for us! Come and enjoy this most blessed time together with our Bishop Brennan in this Jubilee Year of Mercy.

Magnificat is a ministry to Catholic women. Its purpose is to help Catholic women open more and more to the Holy Spirit through a deeper commitment of their lives to Jesus as Lord and to impart the Holy Spirit to one another through their love, service, and sharing the good news of salvation. It thus provides opportunities which will foster a desire to grow in holiness.
We serve the entire Archdiocese of Los Angeles and take the name "Our Lady, Queen of Angels"
