Our Mission Statement - We, the community of Saint John Eudes, dedicate ourselves to continuing the mission of Christ. Grounded in our Baptismal covenant with the Lord Jesus Christ, we seek to do God's will through the power of the Holy Spirit, the intercession of Mary our Mother, and the example of our patron, Saint John Eudes. Our commitment manifests itself in Evangelization, Worship, Service, Education and Stewardship.

Seeking to Do God’s Will
Through the Power of the Holy Spirit
St. John Eudes Parish was founded in 1963, at a time when the West San Fernando Valley was expanding greatly. Some of the Old West still gives our city of Chatsworth a certain flavor, but we attempt to bring to the needs of our households the strength of our Catholic Christian faith that can be applied to the realities of our day.
We have a vital parish life that is centered on our worship, and we bring many talents and resources together to assure that our praise and homage of God is a worthy offering. Opportunities are offered for growth in prayer, in knowledge of our faith, and in service to others in the name of Christ.
May this informational resource help you to discover among us an encouragement to serve the Lord with joy!

The Jubilee Year of Mercy
Pope Francis has declared a Jubilee Year of Mercy from Dec. 8, 2015, thru Nov. 20, 2016. In his declaration, he prays that “In this Jubilee Year, may the Church echo the word of God that resounds strong and clear as a message and a sign of pardon, strength, aid, and love. May she never tire of extending mercy, and be ever patient in offering compassion and comfort.”
In order to allow us to receive all the graces the Year of Mercy offers, pilgrimage churches have been designated throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Special events and activities are also being planned throughout the year around the Archdiocese and our own parish. Information about our parish events will be posted in the bulletin and on this website. Further information is available on the special Archdiocesan website.
Also visit the St. John Eudes Faith Formation Year of Mercy Website for special resources available for the Year of Mercy, as well as special parish and regional events.
