What is the community like?
Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and School is nestled in the hills of Hermosa Beach and shines in the light of Christ for the surrounding South Bay community. With the direction of the Franciscan Friars, this quaint and friendly church welcomes all to encounter Jesus in a deep, life-changing way, then go beyond our walls to make the kingdom of Jesus known. Mass is available every day to celebrate the Eucharist and to provide healing in various forms. There are several ministries and connect groups to join for fellowship and support. The community is blessed with many volunteers and are always looking for more who wish to share their Time, Talents, or Treasures. Highlights include Sunrise Mass on the Beach on Easter morning and the annual OLG Fiesta with carnival foods and games - bringing everyone together with joy, music and laughter.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Non-Christians are always invited to share in the liturgies and to stop by the office for more information. During communion, come forward to receive a blessing by crossing your arms over your chest. To learn more about Catholicism, OLG offers adult classes to explore the faith and help prepare those who want to become Catholic.

Fr. Paul Gawlowski, OFM Conv.

Friar Paul joined the Conventual Franciscans after getting to know the friars as a Parishioner of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Hermosa Beach, CA. He was working as an Electrical Engineer in the Aereospace industry at the time. As a friar he has; served as a teacher of Religion and Physics at Bishop Montgomery High School in Torrance, CA., received his MDiv at the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley CA, has served as Social Outreach Director, Associate, and Pastor of St. Paul of the Shipwreck Church in San Francisco, and as Associate Pastor at Our Lady of Grace in Castro Valley CA. His most memorable ministries were; founding and managing the Sister Thea Bowman Food Pantry, the After School Sports and Arts Academy, and community organizing for homeless housing, and anti-violence especially through street vigils. It was as a pastor that he learned to love administering the sacraments, preaching, teaching, and pastoral ministry. Friar Paul is an advocate of the New Evangelization and enjoys sports and music in his leisure time.
