Our Parish

Dear Friends,

Ever since the announcement of my retirement as pastor of St. Bernardine on June 30 this year, the questions most asked of me have been about my replacement.  This week the names of the new pastors for all the parishes of the archdiocese were announced.

This is the process.  When a parish needs a new pastor, any archdiocesan priest may apply to the archdiocesan personnel board.  The board interviews the applicants and makes a recommendation to the archbishop who makes the final decision.

Our new pastor beginning on July 1, 2017 is Father Michael Evans.  Ordained 25 years ago in St. Vibiana’s Cathedral, his first assignment was St. Gregory the Great in Whittier, followed by American Martyrs in Manhattan Beach.  Presently, he is finishing his term as pastor in Holy Angels Church in Arcadia. 

Born in Glendale, he is the youngest of three children.  His family attended Holy Family Church and he graduated from the parish school.  He then went to Our Lady Queen of Angels High School Seminary in San Fernando graduating in 1984.  Subsequently he attended St. John Seminary College and St. John Seminary, both in Camarillo.

We will welcome him with open arms and we already thank God for him and pray that his ministry here will bring many more blessings on our parish family.

I look forward to helping him in any way I can - just as Monsignor Murray helped Msgr. Dotson and me in his retirement.  I will continue to live here as one of the priests of the parish and look forward to many more years of priestly ministry. 

God bless us all, 
Father McNamara
