Parish Life

The heart of a parish is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.

Pro-life Volunteers Wanted!

Women’s Clinic of the Antelope Valley in Palmdale is a pro-life ministry as well as a licensed medical clinic offering free pregnancy testing, peer-counseling, and ultrasounds.  We are looking for volunteers to donate their time and skills in a variety of ways to help operate the clinic, especially:  LVNs, RNs, and computer techs.  Also we are in need of a second doctor who can offer just a few hours per month by assisting in the reading of ultrasound scans remotely – from the comfort of home.  Please call Karen at 661-350-6304.  Thank you!

Mission Bell PreSchool

Our 2019-20 school year is off to a great beginning! Thank you for your prayers! Speaking of a great beginning, if you hear these words, in the beginning, God made the Heavens and the Earth, and it was good, ringing through our hall, that’s us! Our scripture song for the month of September is about the story of creation from the book of Genesis. A hand lifted signing God, hands stretching up and out for heaven and hands forming a circle over our heads are but a few of the movements to go along with our music! Keeping true to our Mission Statement MBPS is dedicated to the ideals of educating our little saints in an environment that surrounds them with a foundation rooted in our strong Catholic faith. That leads them to develop, grow, and succeed. Thank you God for the gift of our Catholic faith!
