At the Parish
In the 1980s, at the request of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the Oblates of the Virgin Mary were invited to staff the newly-created parish of St. Peter Chanel, located in Hawaiian Gardens, California. In a short period of time, the Oblates have developed an active community of worship which serves a growing Hispanic and Filipino population. In addition to the daily and weekend Masses, confessions are available every day and there is daily Eucharistic Adoration. Retreats are also offered on a quarterly basis.
Prayer: The Key to Salvation!
St. Alphonsus Liguori, Doctor of the Church, insisted on prayer as the key to salvation. This great saint asserted: “He who prays much will be saved, but he who does not pray will be damned.” Even the worse sinner in the world, if he turned to prayer, then he could be saved. Remember the “Good Thief” who at the very end of his life, he turned to Jesus and talked to Him (that was his prayer) and he was saved. Jesus assured him with these consoling words: “Amen I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” St. Augustine coined this pithy saying, that we should all memorize, “He who prays well, lives well, he who lives well dies well, and he who dies well, all is well.” The tone of our life and the end our life will depend on how well or how poorly we have prayed. All the saints agree that prayer is indispensable for conversion, purification, sanctification, perseverance, and eternal salvation.read more
