Dolores Mission serves one of the toughest and poorest neighborhoods in Los Angeles: Boyle Heights. Led by the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits, Dolores Mission serves families who live in the local housing projects: Pico Gardens, Las Casitas and Pueblo del Sol. We respond to the spiritual, educational, physical, and emotional needs of our community. By responding to these needs, particularly through the creation of Christian base communities (comunidades de base) and grassroots organizations, Dolores Mission partners with outside agencies to allow Christ’s healing and transformation and to raise consciousness about larger issues of justice and peace.
