Our Lady of the Angels is not a parish. However, it has permission to celebrate sacraments. To do so, please check our day and time availability by calling +502.5053.3636 and indicating: The type of event, the date, the time, and the name and phone number of the person responsible for the event.

 Even though we provide a certificate for weddings and baptisms, the official registering is done at the end of the year at San Mateo Apóstol parish:

Since our work is sustained by donations, the voluntary offering of each event is suggested. However, the amount of the offering is left to your discretion. You may give your offering in cash or as a check to Valle de los Ángeles.
