CHINO HILLS—The Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary (SS.CC) will end its leadership of St. Paul the Apostle parish in Chino Hills after 28 years, effective January 2015.

 When the parish was established in 1986, then diocesan Bishop Phillip Straling asked the SS.CCs to assume its pastoral care. The Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary are, in fact, the first religious order ever to minister in the Diocese of San Bernardino, going all the way back to San Salvador parish in Colton in the 1840s.
