Fr. Xavier D'SouzaAssociate Pastor:
Rev. Xavier D’Souza

I come to Holy Trinity after serving three other parishes, Holy Family in Glendale, St. Mary’s in Palmdale, and St. Michael’s in Los Angeles.  I look forward to being with all of you.  Prior to my coming to the USA in 2011, I served the Archdiocese of Bombay (Mumbai) for 21 years as an Associate in 3 parishes and later as a Pastor in two parishes.  I came to the USA on my Sabbatical leave in 2011.  Sensing the acute need of priests in the USA, I told the pastor in Palmdale that I could serve the USA for some years, provided my archbishop consents.  Accordingly, Archbishop Cardinal Oswald Gracias, one of the nine Cardinals on our Holy Father Pope Francis’ Advisory Team, accepted my request to allow me more time to serve here in LA.  Later on, I submitted a request again to remain in LA.

In my family, we have four kids:  two boys and 2 girls, coming originally from Goa, in India.  However, we were all born and raised in Mumbai.  I am the third in the family, preceded by my elder brother and a sister.  I have a younger sister too.  Both of my parents have completed their earthly journey, and, as our faith reminds us, are now with the Lord for eternity.  My elder brother is a music teacher in Mumbai, while my elder sister is a teacher in our parish school.  My youngest sister tutors and is actively involved as a Catechist.

  I joined the seminary in Mumbai, and also completed my Philosophy and Theology there.  I was ordained a priest of Jesus Christ on March 31, 1990.  I relish my ministry here at Holy Trinity Church.
