St. Mike’s is a parish in the Diocese of Los Angeles. The parish campus is located on 3.6 acres in Corona del Mar, a neighborhood nestled at the base of the San Joaquin Hills and facing the Pacific Ocean at the southern end of Newport Beach in Orange County, California.
Our parishioners not only live in the surrounding neighborhood, but in multiple zip codes that require a 20+ mile commute. There are areas of great worldly abundance just to our south and great worldly need just to our north. Our neighborhoods have a high proportion of families who have not found a spiritual home in organized religion.
