The Santeria Church of the Orishas is dedicated to the worship of Olodumare (God), the Orishas and our Egun (Ancestors). Our church adheres to the tenets and practices of Santeria (La Regla Lucumi/Lukumí) and welcomes all who are interested in learning more about Santeria, the Orishas, the ancestors or traditional Afro-Cuban religions. We are based in the Greater Los Angeles area of California.
We offer educational services in the form of in-person clases, online articles and lectures at local colleges and universities. Our religious services include spiritual guidance through Diloggún divination (Santeria Cowrie Shell readings), Obí readings (Santeria coconut readings), spiritualist mediumship readings, in-person cleansings, ebós (rituals), initiations and Egun (Ancestor) veneration meetings.
We believe in the immanence of spirit, the intercessory power of prayer, and the efficacy of the practice of setting vigil lights for petitions and praise.
