Growing In Faith Together

The Upper Room Ministry

Welcome to

The Upper Room Ministry is about experiencing personal and communal prayer, growing into a closer relationship with our Lord, faith sharing and spiritual fellowship.  We will pray together before the Blessed Sacrament and have a Healing Mass (once a month). We will also have opportunities to learn more about our Catholic Faith with events and talks by Fr. Leon, Fr. Matthew and guest speakers. 

For more information, contact Elizabeth Trujillo at 805-642-7966 Ext 115.
