Prayer of the Penitent

Lord Jesus Christ,

you are the Lamb of God;

you take away the sins of the world.

Through the grace of the Holy Spirit

restore me to friendship with your Father,

cleanse me from every stain of sin

in the blood you shed for me,

and raise me to new life

for the glory of your name.  Amen.




Lord God,

in your goodness have mercy on me:

do not look on my sins,

but take away all my guilt.

Create in me a clean heart

and renew within me an upright spirit.  Amen.

Love Your Enemies 

Love your enemies.—Matthew 5:38-48 

Can you picture getting to heaven, and the first person you meet is the one you liked least on earth? It’s possible. 

After all, God loves that person just as much as he loves you. 




About Our Church

Welcome to the website of St. Dorothy Catholic Church in Glendora, CA.

On this site there is information about our church and location, our schools and care facility. You will also find our history, and the most important aspect of our life together, the celebration of the sacraments.

We are an active Christian faith community. We are a parish within the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Over the years, the parish has been served by religious orders as well as by diocesan priests.

We are equally blessed by a tremendous diversity among our parishioners. We have a large age range from babies and school children to the retired and elderly. As well, ethnic communities bring a richness to our parish. We believe that no matter what our age, culture or ethnicity we are brothers and sisters and together form the Body of Christ, the church in this place and time.
