Additional observations St. Vitus was established as a parish of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in 2018. It is the new home parish site of the Fraternity in the archdiocese, located in a renovated Syro-Malabar Catholic Church. Its building is modest, but the priests offer a beautiful traditional liturgy as well as deliver traditional, orthodox homilies.
