.- An outdoor Mass in northwestern Los Angeles will be celebrated this Sunday in thanksgiving for the appointment of Archbishop Jose H. Gomez as coadjutor of Los Angeles.

The June 27 Mass will be held at 5:00 p.m. at St. Catherine of Sienna Parish in Resada, a district of Los Angeles. According to the California Catholic Daily, an e-mailed announcement said that the parishes of Deanery 5, the San Fernando Valley, “welcome everyone to a Thanksgiving Mass in honor of Coadjutor Archbishop Jose Gomez.”

A reception will follow the Mass at 7:15 p.m.

According to the announcement, the Mass will be held outdoors in the parish area called “Field of Dreams.” Limited tickets are available for handicapped seating and reserved seating. Tickets for general seating will be handed out on a “first-come, first-served” basis and are provided through the parish.

Archbishop Gomez was Archbishop of San Antonio from 2004 to 2010 and Auxiliary Bishop of Denver from 2001 to 2004. With the retirement next year of present Los Angeles Archbishop Cardinal Roger Mahony, he will become the most prominent Hispanic prelate in the U.S. Catholic Church.
