Placita Church (La)
The oldest religious structure in Los Angeles, this 1822 building is also known as the Church of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels. Originally built as a simple adobe by Franciscan Padres with the labor of local Native American Indians, it took an additional 40 years to construct the whole church. This Catholic church now features some fine modern additions, including a tile mosaic of The Annunciation, created by artist Isabel Piczek in 1981.
The employees that I had to speak to in regards to the up coming of my God Daughter's baptism has left a sour taste in my mouth. They gave us a paper a month ago that indicated when we need to register the child and the times of when the ceremony takes place. No where in this paper shows one time where they have an English ceremony. I spoke to them on Friday to find out there is only one English and it's on a Sunday. The guy (not a gentlemen) gave me a hard time saying well you are Hispanic, aren't you? You shouldn't have a problem hearing the Spanish Mass. Just because the church is in ELA don't insult me by discriminating me whether I do or do not know Spanish. I along with the godfather do not speak Spanish. This is the state of California, this church should at least make it a bilingual mass, NOT EVERYONE SPEAKS SPANISH. This church does not have a problem sticking out their hands when it comes to having to pay for the Baptism ceremony. Very upsetting... I will take this higher up because no parents or god parents should be treated like this. We take joy in being god parents.
I cant believe that in order to be Godparents at this church you have to be married in a catholic church or its not valid! We are good people so why is it wrong that we couldnt get married in a church.I believe and worship god like everyone else, and i will definately support my godchild and show him the teachings of the lord.
I am a regular to this church. I go to the 4:30 p.m mass every Sunday. I noticed that the past 2 Sundays there has been a new mariachi. WOW! They are amazing!! You notice a different vibe in the church while they are singing and playing. The old mariachi wasn't like this new one! You can tell that they know what they are doing. I want to congratulate whoever brought in this new mariachi! Hopefully they are not temporary and that they will stay. I will definitely be enjoying the mass more with beautiful music that God has blessed them to play for us all!
I love LA PLACITA when i was there to visit from pennsylvania it was like good old times and great memories. My son was there for first time and he had to much fun he loved everything about it. The food and music and mass everything just like i remember it. Im twwenty seven and i was baptized here.La plazita is in our family
What can u expect from a church that has to accommodate thousands ? yes they need organization but why don't u write a letter to the church better yet star a petition on all the things the church needs to improve in maybe you'll have a better experience next time?
My sister and I from Albuquerque, NM went to the baptism of my nephew. We were really disappointed of the way they scolded everybody for about 1 hour or more, they even took turns, and it was packed and hot and to top the cake they wouldn't even allow to take picture during the baptism. Oh my poor brother was very embarrassed with us because we travel so far for this; it wasn't his fault - but I don't think he'll do that again with his next child. God please help this people!
The church itself was beautiful, you can truly feel a presence. Unfortunetly the neighborhood/ surrounding area is very unkept. There many beggars that are constantly in your face and the streets are full of trash. It was nice, just nice...
My son was baptized there in April of 2000. After moving around I seemed to have lost his certificate. As I'm trying to get him into Catechism now I really need that certificate. I live in AZ, I called them and everyone was nice to my needs. The best part of it all is how convenient they make it all to be from the baptismal to getting a copy of the certificate. I'd definitely do it all over again.
I baptized my 3 kids their, and one on my nephews. Yes it is small an a little unorganized, but I would do it over and over again. The priest and staff were great and you could feel and experience cathloic tradition at its finest here. My wife and I are expecting are 4th child soon and we will be baptizing him right here. I love this place.
We batized our goddaughtter and goddson and just being in the church was a blessing and the father was so open about what life is. I recommend for everyone to share this experiance if you go to Olvera Street. Just take some time and enjoy the sight that you will see. My husband I will be Baptising soon and would love to see the blessing of our other goddson to be blessed in this church.
