On any given evening, the auditorium of $1. Dominic Savio Church is filled with teenagers who are learning life skills, practicing new hip-hop and salsa steps, and/or rehearsing a new song in Spanish.

Amber Serrano says “Savio· – as youth call their Bellflower parish – is a place where she can relax, a place where she doesn’t have to impress anyone. For Stephanie Chavez, it is a place where she can release her inner child; for Julio Rosales, a place where he can be free, where he can show the best of himself “without being afraid of the crowds.” And Christine Mendoza says it is a place where she can talk about her religion without being judged.
