Finding Spirituality Los Angeles


queen of angelsOn September 4, 1781 Governor Felipe de Neve under the authority of the Spanish King, Carlos the Third, founded El Pueblo de la Reina de Los Angeles. Eleven men, eleven women, twenty-two soldiers and one Jesuit priest christened it The Town of the Queen of Angels.


Two hundred and twenty-nine years after that pivotal day people from around the world are still finding spirituality in LA. Greater Los Angeles is home to over 2,500 spiritual institutions and religions, the traditional, the new, the conservative and the unconventional. Catholic, Jewish, Baptist, Mormon, Muslim, Independent Spiritual, Methodist, Gospel of Christ, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Baha'i, Pagan, New Age and Mystics flock to her nave; to pray, chant, surrender, sing, open, empty, find grace in her cosmic mix.
