Ways to Give: Supporting Your Cathedral


Be a Part of the Cathedral Success Story…

The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels is your Cathedral.  Archbishop Jose H. Gomez invites everyone in our wonderfully diverse community to experience all the Cathedral has to offer.  Ministry, charitable outreach, education, and music programs are available for any and all who seek it. 

Unlike some of the cathedrals of Europe, there is no charge to enter the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels and to enjoy its renowned art, architecture and music. 


The Cathedral truly belongs to everyone because the whole community contributes to its ongoing success, whether financially or through friendship.  The Cathedral was built solely with funding from private donations; the parishes within the Archdiocese of Los Angeles were not assessed for the Cathedral’s construction or its operations.  The Cathedral is a self-sustaining, non-profit organization and does not receive regular funding from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for operating costs. 

In the years since the bronze doors opened, the Cathedral has become the “City’s Cathedral” and is there for all in times of celebration and sorrow.  Please support the Cathedral generously and be a part of welcoming the world to this house of prayer for all peoples.
