Dear Brothers and Sisters,
“Encountering Christ – Faith In Action” is the theme for our 2020 Annual Diocesan Appeal. This reminds us that, as Baptized Catholics, each of us has received an invitation to join as members of one community of faith and as followers of Jesus Christ.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt appreciation for your ongoing support of the Diocese of San Jose. Without your gifts of Time, Talent and Treasure the variety of pastoral projects that serve our community here in Santa Clara County and beyond would not be possible.
Your gift to the Annual Appeal has far-reaching effects and impact. Through your generosity this past year, you helped engage our youth eager to put their faith into action, you prepared our young couples for lifelong marriages, you provided formation that deepened the knowledge of our parish leaders, you created accessibility for Catholic education to students in need, and you supported ongoing educational and spiritual formation for priests, deacons and seminarians.
I am grateful to all who have already given to this year’s ADA for your charitable outreach effort in our Diocese. If you have not had an opportunity to make a gift, I hope that you will view the video below to learn how your gift supports your parish and the ministries of the Diocese of San Jose.
Please continue to keep me in your prayers and know that you and your family remain in my daily mass intentions.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Oscar Cantú
Bishop of San Joseada
