Fr. Dan Danielson has been a priest of the diocese of Oakland for the past 53 years. Before retirement, He was the pastor of the Catholic Community of Pleasanton for 22 years. He was born and raised in St. Jarlath Parish in Oakland and entered the seminary in 1951. For many years he worked with the Continuing Formation of Priests, both in this diocese, in the Region and nationally. He became a convert to Stewardship after first encountering it from Bishop Begin, the founding bishop of this diocese who was a great advocate of the concept. Fr. Danielson’s description of Stewardship is “ Learning How to Grow in Thankfulness”. He did graduate work in Theology at Fordham University. He led the formation of the first deacon class in our diocese and have worked all the days of his ministry in various works of the central diocesan offices.
