The Founding Of Jesus Sacred Heart Parish
In Los Angeles, California
The Jesus Sacred Heart Parish was founded by Reverend Father Joseph Younan when he was a priest serving the Syriac community in Los Angeles, California. By requests of some Syriac families living around the Los Angeles area, he visited them frequently to offer his pastoral services and to minister the sacraments to them. Their efforts were crowned with the celebration of the first Divine Liturgy for their community in LA in September 1990 at the Caldean Church in North Hollywood. Father Younan later became the Bishop of Our Lady of Deliverance Syriac Catholic Diocese in The United States and Canada and presently, he is The Patriarch of the Syriac Catholic Church of Antioch.
