Saint Victor Catholic Church, located at 8634 Holloway Drive, is a Roman Catholic church in West Hollywood, California.[1]

History[edit]

The parish was founded in 1906.[2] It has served many different parishioners: oilmen and railway workers, film industry figures, post-World War II families, gay men, etc.[2] From 1992 to 1994, Archbishop George Hugh Niederauer lived in the church.[3]

The adjacent St Victor's school closed in the 1970s and its building is leased to a private, non-sectarian school, the Pacific Hills School.[2]
