Parishioners, their families, priests and Catholic faithful gathered on Sunday to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of Holy Family Catholic Community Church. About 1,300 people attended the centennial celebration, which began with an afternoon Mass in the church’s sanctuary. Participants also took part in prayer and songs. A procession of clergy and religious leaders made their way into the church with parishioners in tow. “I think it’s especially moving to have the families of priests who once served here,” Fr. Joseph Shea, the church’s pastor, said.

Claudia Peschiutta LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE -- Pastor Jon Karn is happy his parishioners choose to spend their Sunday mornings at the La Canada Flintridge Country Club. That's because they don't go to hit the links. They go to listen to his messages. Formed less than five months ago, the Church at Angeles Crest holds its services in the country club's ballroom. It's a church without a church, something Karn hopes will draw in the kind of people who might be put off by "something with stained glass and an organ."

A group of parishioners had gathered inside the chapel of St. Mark's Episcopal Church for a planning meeting a couple weeks ago when a woman came in searching for the “healing cross.” Past the church pews, at the end of a long hallway, the Byzantine-era cross hung encased in a glass box, surrounded by gold studs and illuminated by lights. The woman reached through a hole drilled in the glass. She touched the face of Christ etched into the center of the cross no bigger than one's palm.

I struggled a bit over writing this column - that is, whether or not to provide the noxious Westboro Baptist Church any ink about their planned protests Sunday at four Glendale churches. The group, rightfully called a cult, hates pretty much everyone: soldiers, priests, homosexuals - especially homosexuals - and anyone not sharing their myopic worldview. They do all manner of outrageous things, in part, to get people like me to write about them. And, lucky us, the circus is coming to town.

Jazz singer Denise Donatelli is an intimate performer. Her love songs, by virtue of her almost confessional medium dynamic and warm alto voice, have a rare intimacy. Emotion is something she deals out slowly, like cards in a poker game; each one puts the previous one in a different light. Musicians and other peers have championed Donatelli's work: her recent "Soul Shadows" album (Savant) was a Grammy nominee for Best Album. And she'll shift gears this Sunday when she performs at the monthly jazz vespers service at All Saints Church in Pasadena.

Local Catholics this week hailed the selection of Pope Francis - the first pontiff from the Americas who is known for his devotion to the poor and mission outreach - and expressed hope that it would reinvigorate a church rocked by scandal and grappling with disenfranchisement. Before taking his papal name Wednesday to succeed Benedict XVI as leader of the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, Pope Francis was known as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina, where he built a reputation as a Jesuit, ascribing to the religious order's focus on poverty and social justice issues.
