Blessings to you and your loved ones from our Parish Family at St. Simon of Cyrene Catholic Parish! Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will explore the many ways we live the mission of Jesus Christ expressed in our parish vision:

Rooted in and propelled by the love of Jesus Christ, we, the people of St. Simon of Cyrene Catholic Parish, one Parish Family with ministry sites at St. Agatha & St. Martin de Porres Churches, profess a life-giving, all- embracing faith, fostering full participation in worship that nourishes us to care for one another and extend our lived faith, relentless hope and life-giving love to our Westside Communities.

We pride ourselves in honoring the legacy of Christ’s love through our welcoming spirit, our vibrant liturgies with soul-stirring contemporary Gospel music, comforting and challenging preaching, and our care for each other. This strengthens us to then engage our brothers and sisters in the surrounding communities with direct assistance and with programs that strengthen community families and address the social challenges and inequities that stem from systemic racism, mutually empowering all of us: We empower parents, youth, returning citizens and elders through our active engagement with programs that uplift them physically, emotional, spiritually and materially; and they empower us by allowing us to share the fullness of our gifts as Christ would have us do as His disciples.

Through us, when we are at our best, those we serve encounter the loving and life-giving presence of Christ within us as we, in turn, are touched by the Christ within them.

Please take the time to explore the many ways we seek to honor Jesus Christ’s love for us. Our hope is that you will feel the love of Christ through what you see on this site and provide us with the gift of your presence at one of our Masses or other events!

In the meantime, may we meet each other in prayer, where Christ seeks to bind us all together as one, pilgrims on the journey through life, loving each other into eternal life.

Peace! Fr. Larry Dowling, Pastor
