Established post World War II to serve the Polish immigrants in South California, the Pope John Paul II Polish Center aims to preserve the cultural heritage of its Polish members. Operating since long, the first official mass at this center was however held in 1983, after which this place has become a hub for Polish activities. The center hosts and conducts allied activities like Polish classes, festivals catering to the community as well as events that reflect the culture. The center also takes care of the recreational aspect by conducting regular contests, sports activities and interactive sessions. Music artists and performers are also welcome here.
