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.
