Los Angeles is one of the fashion capitals of the world, where for many Catholics, the path to holiness can be found walking down the runway, or styling a photo shoot.

But for the past three years, Sequoia Sierra, a young Catholic entrepreneur working in style and design, has channeled her love of faith and fashion into a unique start-up, The Liturgical Co., with a mission to make the Church’s beautiful liturgical design more accessible.

Sierra, a lay Third Order Norbertine and alumna of Christendom College, gained experience in the secular fashion design and style world, working in both television and film. She studied costume design at Los Angeles City College, and fashion merchandising at Los Angeles Trade Tech. Over the summers, she continues to take courses on faith, sacraments, and the spiritual life at Christendom College’s Notre Dame graduate school.
