A Letter From Us
Dear Cathedral Gift Shop Customers,
As concern over the COVID-19 pandemic continues to grow, additional safety measures have been put in place to protect Cathedral visitors and staff. With the implementation of the Los Angeles “Safer at Home” directives, the entire Cathedral Complex is now closed to the public. This action includes temporarily closing the Cathedral Gift Shop and its shipping department. For that reason we are unable to process any on-line orders for the moment.
We know that at times like these, we find comfort in a statue of our favorite Saint, that special rosary, and daily scripture readings and meditation to help us keep the faith. We encourage you to browse through our online store and create an account and a wish list so that these reminders of faith can find their way to your Catholic home when we are back and running. Check back with us and we will update you as more information becomes available.
In the meanwhile, please know that the prayers of the Gift Shop staff and all the Cathedral family accompany you during these challenging days.
For more information about COVID-19 and what you can do to keep healthy and safe, visit the Centers for Disease Control at cdc.gov or your local health department's website here.
Let us continue to pray for the health of our community, their families and friends. God Bless you all.
Gift Shop Store Manager
Sharing A Prayer In The Time of Coronavirus
Prayer in the Time of the Coronavirus Most Reverend José H. Gomez Archbishop of Los Angeles Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas. We fly to you today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana. Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness. For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance. Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust. In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind. Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts. We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy. Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen.
