Welcome to Our Mother of Confidence Parish in the University City area of San Diego. I am the pastor, Father Mark Campbell. I appreciate you checking out our parish website. I look forward to meeting you in person!
Our Mother of Confidence Parish was founded in 1964. Since then, our parish family has grown to more than 1500 registered families. Our parish community is a vibrant, loving, and compassionate place to nurture and live out our faith together.
A place where you can WORSHIP. We believe that Christ is the center of all that we do. Life gets busy with work and family obligations. I’d like to invite you to take time out and celebrate Mass with us. Each weekday morning we have Mass at 8 o’clock. And we have 5 weekend Masses to accommodate any busy schedule.
Our Mother of Confidence is more than Mass! It is a place where you can CONNECT though our many organizations and ministries. We have something for everyone! It is a chance to build lasting relationships. Our parish is a place where you can GROW IN YOUR FAITH through our ongoing faith formation for people of all ages. Our parish is a place where you can GIVE… and where you can SERVE through our practice of being good stewards. Many people say Our Mother of Confidence feels like home and we know you will feel at home here, too. We believe that all are called to be on a spiritual journey and what matters is not where a person is on that journey, but actually being on the journey itself.
We welcome you, regardless of your struggles, your failures, or where you are on that journey. You are invited, accepted, and we are here to serve you!
For more information, please scroll through our website. I look forward to seeing you at Mass.

FIRST FRIDAY MASSES ARE AT 8:00 A.M. AND 5:30 P.M. BOTH MASSES ARE FOLLOWED BY ANNOINTING OF THE SICK. AT THE MORNING MASS WE HAVE BENEDICATION AFTER A VERY SHORT PRAYER SERVICE.
Lent begins with the celebration of Ash Wednesday and concludes 40 days later before the celebration of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday.
Catholics are asked to choose their own penitential practices but are also asked to observe the practices of fast and abstinence during the 40 days of Lent. The Lenten Fast and Abstinence Regulations are as follows:
- Everyone 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent.
- Everyone 18 years of age and under 59 years of age is bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. (The obligation of fasting ceases with the celebration of one’s 59th birthday.)
- On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, only one full meatless meal is allowed. Two other smaller meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted on these two days, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the obligation does not oblige.
- Catholics should not lightly excuse themselves from these prescribed minimal penitential practices.
