Thank you to all who celebrated the life of Bishop Emeritus Tod Brown with us 🙏 

More than 1,500 attended the funeral Mass, including priests and bishops from around the West Coast. Interreligious clergy also attended, including His Eminence Metropolitan Serapion of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of Los Angeles, Southern California and Hawaii. Cardinal Roger Mahony of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles was the celebrant. 

Bishop Brown will temporarily be laid to rest at the Cathedral Memorial Gardens before being transferred to the cathedral’s St. Callistus Chapel and Crypts, which are scheduled for completion next year.

Rest in peace, Bishop Brown.

To see more from the Mass, visit the link in our bio.

“Bless this home with its books and belongings that store the knowledge of the ages and the memories of Sister Kathleen Marie for all of us…” - Bishop Kevin Vann at the blessing of the new Sister Kathleen Learning Center

Last weekend, members of the St. Joachim community gathered at the home of late Sister Kathleen Marie and joined in the dedication of her home to its new purpose as the St. Joachim Catholic Schools campus library and learning center.

Sister Kathleen Marie Pughe, CSJ — who belonged to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange — resided in the 900-square-foot house for 14 years. The educator served as St. Joachim’s principal from 2006 until her retirement in 2019 and was an adored figure in Catholic education for more than 50 years.

Those who knew Sister Kathleen are certain “she is smiling down and is so happy that this place is used for the students, for this to be a second home for them, because she really had a heart for the kids.”

Join us in continued prayer for Sister Kathleen and for the success of the new Learning Center 🙏
