Welcome, we are blessed to have you.

Diocese of Stockton's Photo of the Week:


Pictured is Cynthia Dragun, the Victim Assistance Coordinator for the Diocese of Stockton with Fr. Banka, Fr. Suresh and Fr. Sleeva at a respite hosted by the At One With the Spirit ministry from St. Patrick's in Sonora. The At One With the Spirit ministry helps parishioners with spiritual development. The respite was held at the convent of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in the city of Carmel. Although it was limited this year due to COVID-19, the respite served as a great platform for clergy and parishioners to share their spiritual journey with others.
