I visited one day and was interested in attending Mass and then time ran out and I didn't go - also, I wasn't quite sure about the validity. I spoke to the Secretary of the parish, and she assured me they are in full communion with Rome and believe in Transubstantiation. They have a nice website: http://stmaryoftheangels.org/

When we visited England, almost all of the Anglican Churches assured us they were fully in line with Roman Catholicism, but they were not - so I am suspicious. This particular Church in Los Angeles is absolutely beautiful, reverent, sober, etc., and I would like to experience a Mass there because it seems to be able to offer something we can't find anywhere else.

Can anybody here shed a little light on this and perhaps educate me? I apologize ahead of time for my ignorance, and I do indeed assure you that I have read the website thoroughly and I even called them. They are not listed in the Archdiocese' Directory, but that really doesn't mean much for a city of this size that ordained only TWO priests this year.

PAX

Since they call themselves 'St Mary' of the Angels Anglican Church', I would say to stay away from them. They sound like they are part of the 'Continuing Anglican' movement, groups that have left the Episcopal Church because of the homosexual priests/bishops controversy but have not yet come Home to Rome. If they were, indeed, a Catholic Church, I would expect to see the word Catholic somewhere in their name or at least 'Anglican Use' which is the proper name for Catholic Churches that came out of Anglicanism.

And despite the size of the Archdiocese, I seriously doubt that they just forgot to list one of their parishes. :)
