Mission Statement

As Christian stewards, our mission is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people through word, sacrament, service and community life.

Blood Drive


Every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. Yet blood cannot be manufactured; it must be given by volunteer donors. Because blood has a limited shelf life, the community blood supply must constantly be replenished to meet patients’ needs. You can make a life-saving contribution by donating your blood at the St. Bonaventure Blood Drive.

St. Bonaventure Blood Drive
Friday, July 12
11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Red Cross Bus in Parish Center Parking lot

• The number one reason people don’t donate is that they were not asked.

Back-to-School Drive for Homeless Kids

Colette’s Children’s Home 

BACK-TO-SCHOOL DRIVE FOR HOMELESS KIDS

Colette’s Children’s Home operates several local shelters serving women and children who have fallen into homelessness due to crises such as job loss or domestic violence. Last year Colette’s received nearly 4,000 requests for help and was able to provide housing and supportive services for 633 homeless women and children in Orange County. 

These children range in age from kindergarten to high school. The Justice & Peace Ministry would like to send them back to school with the clothes and supplies needed to do well. We ask our parish community to join in this effort. 

Will you be doing back-to-school shopping? Please consider buying for one more child, perhaps the age of your child. Ask your child what they would want to have in their backpack for school, or a piece of clothing they would like, and buy one more for a homeless child. 

Bring your donation to the parish center the weekend of July 27-28. We can also use gift cards to Payless for shoes and Kohl’s or Walmart for basic clothing. Thank you for caring! 

To learn more about Colette’s visit www.healinghomelessness.org.

HOPE OFFICE Volunteers & Special Need

Volunteers Needed:
The HOPE Office is an ALL-volunteer program, which assists those in need within our community. We need HELP and are looking for folks willing to give their time and make some new friends along the way.

We need help with the following positions:

• Pick-up food once a week from Albertsons (approximately 2 hours and must have a large car or truck and be able to lift 20lbs).

• Work a shift in the Office (two shifts per day 10:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. or 12:30-3:00 p.m., Monday-Friday); desk (process paperwork with clients); pantry (fill food orders for clients) OR clothing room (accept donations, sort and hang clothing).

Special Need:
The HOPE Office is in need of CEREAL! With the increase in families and seniors that HOPE is assisting on a monthly basis, and the lack of product at the Food Banks, we are asking for your help.  Drop off CEREAL at HOPE anytime Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m

For more info or if you would like to volunteer, please call 714-501-2772.

Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Would you like to have the Sacred Heart of Jesus enthroned in your home? Would you like to exhibit the official and social recognition that the Kingship of the Heart of Jesus reigns in your Catholic family? The Legion of Mary is offering this time-lost tradition of our Catholic faith. If you would like to learn more about consecration and enthronement contact the Legion of Mary by e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

WHAT IS ENTHRONEMENT?

Enthronement gives special recognition to the Sacred Heart of Jesus by giving the image of the Sacred Heart a place of honor in the home and dedicating each family member to His Sacred Heart by an act of consecration. 

In this way, the family is brought under the benign influence of the Divine Heart, which asserts itself in all the events of family life. The Enthronement is a recognition of the living presence of Our Lord in the home, where His Divine Heart, as King of Love, is the Center, attracting all the members of the family.

Greeters Needed!

Isn't it wonderful to have someone say, "Hello," "Good Morning," or just "Hi" to you with a smile? It brings us out of ourselves and wakes us up to the gifts—all around—that God has ready for all of us each day. In these days of renovation, we have only one entrance into our parish church. It would be so nice to have someone there to greet us as we come in to praise and thank our Lord. We are in need of some joy-filled persons to volunteer their time, at least one or two persons for each Mass. Would you like to greet your fellow parishioners this way? We would love to have you. We need your joyful presence! Please contact Betty Kuhn at 714-536-0585 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

GIVE+ your church giving app

We have updated our electronic giving suite, now called Giving Plus. We are still using the same trusted company Vanco, while now being able to offer new, more convenient ways to give. This also allows us to preserve the functionality of our previous suite for those who already give electronically. In addition to giving online, you can now give through the app and text message. More information is on the way, along with some special training to help those interested in electronic giving to get set up.  Thank you for your continuing generosity that allows our parish to do so much good.

Recycling Suspended

Our parish recycling program has been suspended due to the ongoing church renovation. Please do not leave recyclable items on church property. Please take your items to a local recycling center (Beachside Recycling & HB Recycling are nearby) or place them in the blue recycle containers provided by the city.

Thank you to the wonderful volunteers and the many recycling enthusiasts who have participated.  We hope to resume next summer or fall 2019.
