This beautifully illustrated book, written by an eminent church historian, honors the lives of over 85 Catholics of Southern California whose endurance in the pursuit of their faith commitment is worthy of emulation by those of us who follow in their footsteps. These local "heroes", whose lives spanned the 19th and early 20th century came from all walks of life, both laity and religious. Included among the Outstanding Laity are recognizable local names such as Carrie Doheney, Helen Modjeska, Cesar Chavez, Gregory Peck. Other sections honor Pioneering Religious Women, Episcopal Leaders, Religious Men, and Priestly Pioneers.
