    One half hour for confessions?

      Having been a member of St. KIERAN Parish for over thirty years, I can tell you we are a small but loving community. Our priest, Fr. Ben, and Deacon Frank Riley, fearlessly preach the Truths of our Faith. Four other local Catholic Churches offer Confession times throughout the week..

  2. St Kieran’s is a beautiful church with a warm and welcoming congregation. I have attended Mass at St Kieran many times while visiting family members who reside in El Cajon.

    Good news, but regret the interior appearance of that building. It’s difficult to think of it as a church.

    • Becky Taylor says

      Originally intended to be the hall, but the land planned for the church building was found to be unstable, so it became the permanent church. I like it because it has lots of light!

      I’m so sorry you didn’t notice our beautiful tabernacle, altar and reverence.

  4. Who did the soil test before the Diocese bought the land?
    Interior looks very similar to St Elizabeths in Carlsbad. Maybe the Diocese got two buildings for one design fee.
