Reclaiming Christ's Mission Together

Our call to a life of stewardship leads us to reflect on the countless blessings God has bestowed upon us. Bishop Barber invites every parish and center in the Diocese of Oakland to take part in our Reclaiming Christ’s Mission Together Capital Campaign to support our Catholic Schools, Local Parishes, Catholic Charities, Religious Education Leadership Training, Priests’ Retirement Benefits Trust, the Annual Bishop’s Appeal, and Planned Debt Restructure. This is the first Diocesan wide Capital Campaign conducted in the history of our Diocese!

Over the next few months, we will be involved in conducting our Reclaiming Christ’s Mission Together Capital Campaign here at St John Vianney Parish. In order to fully explain the magnitude of this endeavor, we will be hosting informative receptions designed to raise awareness about this project and to provide families with opportunities to ask questions. You will be receiving an invitation within the next week. Fr. Jim would like to see every parishioner attend one of these receptions. You will hear more about the campaign in the coming weeks.
