Friday Night Basketball at the Church of Presentation in Stockton! The Priests from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Stockton (starring our Father Banka #8) took on the Seminarians from Diocese of Stockton Vocations. It was an exciting game, with the Seminarians winning 31 to 32.

We feel blessed to have these incredible men from India serving God in our Country. Thank you, Father Yesobu Banka, Father Prakash Sagili, and Bishop Jaya Rao Polymer for all you do. Including the beautiful morning Mass at Saint Patrick Church Sonora CA.


Hello, St. Patrick’s faith family and friends. During this ever-changing coronavirus, Father Yesobu Banka’s leadership continues to be inspiring, encouraging, and hopeful as he serves the Lord here in Sonora, California. However, the coronavirus continues to take many lives and cause great suffering in his home country of India. Let’s Pray with Father Banka as he sings to the Lord in his native language of Telugu. “Lord, please come to save our country and save our humanity. Without You, how can we fight corona? And, how can we wipe our tears of loss if You are not with us? How can we live our life if You are not journeying with us? And, how do we fight and win corona if You are not strengthening us? Come, come and be with us to fight corona. Come and save our country and humanity.”
