About Our Council

When the council was formed there were no surrounding parishes. St. Mary was it. The council met at the parish. A few years later the council purchased the old Oddfellows hall in downtown Escondido to serve as its council home and renamed it Monsignor Lawler hall in honor of the Priest at St Mary who was instrumental in forming the council .

As new parishes were spun off and became established, our council provided the initial members required to form the new council, two in Escondido and one in Valley Center.

The Regina Coeli Council works closely with the Saint Mary's Parish in Escondido assisting with Parish events, fund raising and various other projects supporting our Priests and parishioners. You will find our members active in all the ministries of the Parish.
