Our Lady of the Rosary of Talpa Catholic Church Los Angeles Short History

Our Lady Of Talpa Church began slowly in the poor village of Talpa de Allende in the 17th century.
Between the years 1926 and 1928, persecution in Mexico closed the churches and drove the priests into exile. Many Catholics followed them. Hundreds of families crossed the border into California and settled in Los Angeles, until Spanish became the language of the city’s east side. Without priests of churches, these fervent people preserved their Catholic traditions of faith in God and devotion to Our Lady. Soon Father Cordero, one of the exiled Mexican priests, was named administrator of the Mission of Our Lady of Talpa. The first mass was celebrated on Ash Wednesday, 1927; the first Baptism was recorded on October 27, 1928.

By 1938 the Mexican priests were able to return to their homeland. The Spanish Vincentian Fathers then accepted the charge of Our Lady of Talpa Parish. From that time until his death in 1964, Father Jose Cervera served as the people’s beloved Pastor. In spite of many hardships, Father Cervera’s strong faith in Our Lady led him to “dream big.” Father planned for a school and in September 1950, construction began. On September 16, 1951, the dream of many years was realized: Talpa School was opened! The first day of school was celebrated with Holy Mass at 9:00 a.m. in Our Lady of Talpa Church, which was attended by a large congregation of children and parents. The enrollment on that first day was 256 children for grades Kinder to 4th. Three Daughters of Charity were on hand to receive the first pupils of Our Lady of Talpa School. These three pioneers were Sister Rosalie, Sister Margaret Mary, and Sister Rosanna.
