What We Do

Blessed Sacrament, Hollywood, Calif.

Blessed Sacrament Parish is a wonderfully diverse community located in the middle of historic Hollywood. Our ministry, which began in 1904, is focused both to enrich our community of faith and to improve the quality of life of those that live in Hollywood. We dedicate ourselves to a rich liturgical tradition in which the sacramental life of the Roman Catholic Church is made vibrant and alive. Our religious education program seeks to prepare children and adults to fully participate in this sacramental life. In addition, our elementary school (kindergarten through eighth grade), places emphasis on both the academic and the spiritual development of our students.

We are also committed to the larger community of Hollywood. Our social service program seeks to serve the very poor of our community. Moreover, we seek to empower those who struggle to make their home in our community through our involvement with the Hollywood Interfaith Sponsoring Committee, a community organization in the PICO network.

Walking with Christ who suffers, dies, and rises with our people, Dolores Mission, a Jesuit Parish, responds to the spiritual, educational, physical, and emotional needs of our community.
