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 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...
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
This place is awful to go and baptize your children. I really hate talking like this about the house of jesus but this place really needs some organization. We showed up at 745am and the line for the baptisms was already out to the street. I could not believe how many baptisms take place at once. The place is hot and stuffy inside, there are so many kids in there crying and yelling that you cannot even hear the priest give the mass, which is probably a good thing because all the priest did was scold everyone in the church for 1 1/2hrs. This was very upsetting to me. I wanted to hear a nice mass and the priest talk to us about the baptisms and just give a good speech, but no...all he did was scold us. I was there this past weekend and I do not recommend it. It was not what I expected, I expected something more traditional and a nice memory that I can cherish for the rest of my life, instead I came out of there very unhappy. I am thankful that my children are baptized but if I had to do it all over again it would not be here at this church that is for sure.
I love to go to see and pray at the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament which is a beautifully adorned Monstrance with the Holy Eucharist in it. So much history, the beautiful people that go, and the prayer. Lovely. Blessings.
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.
I would like to congratulate The Placita Church and the Priests, who held today's baptismal ceremony. This was my first time at that Church and must say it is beautiful:) I would recommend more organization. I couldn't believe the volume of baptisms. Thank you so much for a beautiful, family oriented congregation.
i was baptized at the Placita Church, by my single mother, who was struggling to survive and raise me and my siblings..she made a promise to God and she kept it..today, my mother is with god, and my siblings and i are all very successful and healthy..her promise was to raise her children with god, and never turn her back, no matter what the odds, if he would be merciful and bless us..i made this same promise when i baptized my two children also..
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.
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.
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!
