The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels
Standing in the midst of downtown Los Angeles, the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels serves the total Archdiocese of over 4 million Catholics. As the heart of all 288, Parish Churches and communities, it is the place where the Archbishop celebrates the major Liturgies of the year with clergy, religious and laity. The Cathedral serves as a “model Church for all Parish Churches” in the style and content of its liturgical celebrations.
In design, art and furnishings, the Cathedral is rich in cultural diversity in a city in which Sunday Mass is celebrated in 42 different languages. In these first seventeen years, the Cathedral has welcomed countless pilgrims and visitors.
The Relic of the Tilma of St. Juan Diego is now permanently enshrined at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, after being on tour in 20 cities throughout the United States. The relic is a piece of St. Juan Diego’s tilma—the cloth that holds the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
The relic—likely the only one in the United States—is a small piece that was detached from the tilma and given to Archbishop John Cantwell of Los Angeles by the Archbishop of Mexico City, Luis Maria Martinez in 1941. It has been in the archives of the Los Angeles Archdiocese under the care of Monsignor Francis Weber since 1981.
The tapestries created by artist John Nava for the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels are the largest collection hanging in a Catholic place of worship in the United States. Throughout the ages, large scale pictorial wall cycles have served as one of the most effective forms of literary expression, vividly telling the stories of the Greeks, Romans, Medieval and Renaissance periods, especially to a largely illiterate population. The tapestries are part of this heritage and link the very contemporary Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels to this long tradition. In modern times, as in the past, tapestries have served as an art form that can combine great size with intricacy of detail, and in the Cathedral serve to soften the tonal quality and enhance the acoustics.
