A Eucharistic Community Living the Good News Daily
This is my commandment: love one another as I have
loved you. (John 15:12)
Welcome to Our Lady of Fatima Parish—virtually! For over 70 years, this parish has been Revealing the Light of Christto the San Clemente community. The parish reflects a rich diversity of ages, cultures, languages, occupations, and life experiences all united in our one Lord, Jesus Christ.
At Our Lady of Fatima, we believe that each person has been blessed with unique gifts from God, gifts to be offered in service to one another. This is the message of love that Jesus proclaimed through his life, death, and resurrection. Our love of God is manifested in our praise and worship of Him, and in our care for all His people. This website provides a means for us to ‘proclaim from the e-housetops’ the power of God’s love working through our sacramental life, faith formation opportunities, and outreach ministries.
Whether you are a current parishioner or a first time visitor, we invite you to take a few moments to walk through our website to experience the faith, hope, and love that the members of this community share with one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. As we travel this grace-filled journey of faith, may we continue to love one another as Jesus has loved us!
While public Masses are resuming, our parish campus will remain closed throughout the week.
In compliance with the order released on Thursday, March 19, 2020, by Gov. Gavin Newsom, all parish facilities are closed to the public.

Dear parishioners and friends of Our Lady of Fatima,
We give thanks to God! Bishop Kevin Vann has set the Feast of Corpus Christi, June 13-14, for the resumption of public Masses. Our Lady of Fatima will celebrate the full schedule of Masses beginning that weekend. For safety and simplicity, we will phase in our full return. During phase 1, we will offer Mass outside in our Academy's quad (bring your own chairs) with live streaming into McGowan Hall (chairs supplied). Please review the Mass Guidelines at a Glance for more information on returning to worship. The parish is committed to following all recommended guidelines to ensure a safe environment including the cleaning and sanitizing of our facilities.
To support our return to public worship, we will need additional liturgical ministers (e.g. lectors, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion). We are most in need of expanding our Hospitality Ministry (ushers and greeters) to ensure the comfort and safety of everyone returning to Mass. Click here for details. If you would like to be part of the re-open efforts, contact the parish at firstname.lastname@example.org call the office at 949-492-4101. Our parish voicemail is actively monitored throughout the day.
