Bishop David O’Connell speaks at his episcopal ordination at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels Sept. 17, 2015. (Victor Alemán)

“Enteral rest grant unto Bishop David O’Connell O Lord, and let Your perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul rest in peace.” We as a community are sadden at the tragic loss of Bishop David. He was known for his compassion and love for the lost and forgotten, gang members and the poor, immigrants and unaccompanied minors left at our borders, families and children, youth and young adults everywhere. He had two powerful prayer practices: Prayer of the Heart & Gospel Reflection Process. He recorded two short videos explaining these practices which can be found at Bishop Dave.

Comunidad's Annual Appeal

Comunidad has begun its Annual Appeal and we ask our members to help support our ministry, both financially and with prayer. Your continued support allows YOUR ministry to reach members of the LGBTQ+ community at events like Pride, the annual Pride Mass, monthly meetings and other community events. Our Annual Appeals Letter contains all the information needed to donate. Any support you can give is greatly appreciated. God Bless

Mardi Gras Fun

A big THANK YOU for all that joined us for the Mardi Gras celebration and made it such an amazing success. We all had so much fun with the games, trivia, “ice breakers” and food. Also, a shout out to all the members “behind the scene” that made it happen. Blessings to you all!!!
