Thank you so much for visiting our new website of Our Lady of Refuge parish community in Long Beach, California. On behalf of this warm, loving, faith filled community, I welcome you in the Spirit and Love of Jesus Christ.
This site is still a work in progress so please be patient with us as we upgrade it to the standards we desire.
I have been part of this community for a few months now and on a daily basis I am inspired by the ordinary People of God living their faith with such passion and love.
This parish website is a glimpse into the heart of our parish. I want you all to enjoy it and hopefully visit and celebrate Mass with us.
All are welcome. May Our Lady of Refuge Pray for Us.
In the Peace of Christ,
Fr. Gerard O'Brien, Pastor
