Beatitudes  - Ministries

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

We set aside the first Monday of each month for 12 hours of perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Volunteers are present throughout the day so that Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is never alone. We close at 7pm with an hour of prayer and thanksgiving. Everyone is welcome to spend time with our loving Lord.

Catholic Men's Fellowship of La Mirada 

Directing men’s lives toward the greater Glory of God


Challenged like never before, men battle daily with who we are, and the man God calls us to be. Our faith cannot be lived in isolation, CMF helps men connect with other men who seek to know, love, and serve our Lord better. Come gather in a safe space, with likeminded men, to openly talk about spiritual matters. As 'Spiritual Works in Progress', participants help each other move closer to God, and support one another in becoming the best possible versions of themselves. Men are encouraged to learn from one another: how to be a better man, how to better cope with the stresses of life, and how to form stronger happier relationships. Through fellowship and an openness of faith, we can live out God’s calling in our lives, and lay vocations.

Beatitudes' lectors function as lay ministers in the Eucharistic celebration by proclaiming God's Word to the assembled faith community. It is a priority in our parish to provide a program of formation, practice and critique for women and men who feel called to this ministry.

The universal church has established a number of requirements for the celebration of the sacrament of matrimony. Certain documents are required as part of the marriage preparation process.

Couples must contact the parish and initiate the preparation process no later than six months prior to the date they hope to celebrate their wedding. Couples are encouraged to contact the parish long before this, from the beginning of their engagement.

Ministers of Eucharist for Sunday/Daily Liturgy

As our parish family continues to grow, more people are receiving the body and blood of Christ. Lay women and men are needed to share Jesus by serving as special ministers of the Eucharist. A training/formation course is provided before commissioning as a Eucharistic Minister. Let us know if you are interested in helping.

Ministry to the Sick

The purpose of the Ministry of the Sick is to bring Jesus to the sick, to pray and praise God. We remember Jesus' passionate love and presence in the Eucharist. We bring our love to the family of the sick. We encourage them to pray with us. We usually go to visit in pairs.

Parish Liturgy and Worship Committee

Did you ever wonder why the weekly liturgies in our parish are so vibrant, so prayerful? Did you ever wonder who helps coordinate the readings, music, environment, the feasts and seasons of the church year so that we might celebrate them more meaningfully and prayerfully?

Behind the scenes is a dedicated group of people called the Worship Committee. They value liturgy and are knowledgeable concerning liturgical documents and traditions. They come together regularly to pray, plan and prepare how to make the gathering of our parish family more meaningful.
