Queen of Angels Catholic Church in Santa Clarita, California, is much like any Catholic church you might have attended before the Second Vatican Council occurred in the 1960's. This Council, Supposedly intended to bring about a genuine spiritual renewal in the living of our Faith, inaugurated liturgical changes that broke drastically from the Church's sacred liturgy and traditions of nearly 2,000 years. It is because of these Changes and the resultant universal loss of faith among so many bishops, priests, nuns and laity, that Queen of Angels and chapels like this one are drawing more ans more interest from concerned Catholics all over the world.
The pastor of Queen of Angels is Father Dominic Radecki, CMRI, a religious priest. The bishop and priests of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) offer only the Tridentine Latin Mass in all the churches an chapels they serve. Remaining faithful to all of the Church's venerable teachings and traditions. Queen of Angels Church reflects the stability and endurance of truths and doctrines that will never change with the times.
The faithful receive Holy Communion on their tongues as they kneel at the communion rail in humble adoration of the Real Presence of God. Ladies wear head coverings and modest clothing out of respect. The reverent silence in the House of God indicates a living faith in Christ Who dwells in the tabernacle.
We have a full schedule of activities at our church. All The Sacraments are received exactly the way they always were before Vatican II: Baptism, Confirmation, Penance, The Holy Eucharist, Matrimony and Extreme Unction. There are numerous parish groups who attend Queen of Angels, ranging from basic catechism instruction for the youth and converts to the Faith, to our parish organizations for the Teens, for Christian Mothers and for those who wish to lead a more dedicated spiritual life as members of the Confraternity of Mary Immaculate Queen. We invite you to check out all of our parish activities on this website.
We at Queen of angels welcome visitors to our parish at anytime of the year, but especially at Christmas and Easter. Although the number of parishioners has outgrown our small church, newcomers are always welcome. Each of our parishioners adds something unique to the family atmosphere we think is very special here at our church. Come and see it for yourself! If you have not been to a Latin Mass in many years, if you have never been to one at all, you will be pleasantly surprised at what you find at Queen of Angels. You will feel as if you have come home, as indeed you have.

Prayer to the Queen of Heaven
August Queen of Heaven, Sovereign Mistress of the Angels, who didst receive from the beginning the mission and the power to crush the serpent's head, we beseech thee to send thy holy angels, that under thy command and by thy power they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks, and drive them hence into the abyss of woe.
Most holy Mother, send thy angels to defend us and to drive the cruel enemy from us.
All ye holy Angels and Archangels, help and defend us. Amen
O good and tender mother! Thou shalt ever be our love and our hope.
Holy Angels and Archangels, Keep and defend us. Amen
Novena of Confidence
to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
(for family relations that have fallen away)
O Lord Jesus Christ, to Thy Most Sacred Heart I confide this intention (silently mention here the names you are praying for). Only look upon me, then do what Thy Heart inspires. Let Thy Sacred Heart decide. .. I count on it ... I trust in it ... I throw myself on its mercy, Lord Jesus! Thou wilt not fail me.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee.
Sacred Heart if Jesus, I believe in Thy love for me.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy Kingdom come!
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked Thee for many favors, but I earnestly implore this one. Take it, place it in Thy open, broken Heart, and when the Eternal Father looks upon it, covered with Thy Precious Blood, He will not refuse it. It will no longer be my prayer but Thine, O sacred Heart of Jesus. O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee. Let me never be confounded. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Joseph
O glorious St. Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ, to thee do we raise our hearts and hands to implore thy powerful intercession in obtaining from the benign Heart of Jesus all the helps and graces necessary for our spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a happy death and the favor we now implore, _____.
O glorious St. Joseph, through the love thou bearest to Jesus Christ and for the glory of His name hear our prayers and obtain our petitions. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, assist us.
The time may be delayed,
the manner may be unexpected,
but the answer is sure to come.
Not a tear of sacred sorrow,
not a breath of holy desire poured out to God will ever be lost,
but in God's own time and way will be wafted back again in clouds of mercy
and fall in showers of blessings on you
and on those for whom you pray
