Summer Bulletin

Welcome to the Summer edition of Faith Doing Justice! I hope you are enjoying some free time this summer. I took this picture of my summer garden which is growing well with all the rain and now sunshine.

Social justice is also growing in our diocese. I haven't updated this blog for awhile just because there's been so much going on!

We just held our second Justice Symposium on June 24 at Santa Clara University and over 250 attended. We were able to honor a great leader in our diocese, Monsignor Eugene Boyle who just celebrated his 60th anniversary as a priest.

We have been working on the Catholic Campaign for Immigration Reform and participated in the April 10 and May 1 marches. Father Jon Pedigo has been appointed as director of this effort in our diocese.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you. Thank you for all that you do. The following are some articles to update you on some recent activities.
