Dear SFC Parishioners:
I am writing this letter to inform you that this year I will celebrate 43 years of active Priestly Ministry.
This year I will also complete 34 years of active Priestly Ministry in the Diocese, and 26 years of continued
service as Pastor at 3 different parishes in the Diocese of San Jose. As I enter the twilight of my
Priestly Ministry I have requested permission from our Bishop to retire effective July I, 2021.
Bishop Cantu has granted me permission to retire. I will be in residence at St. Joseph Home
for Retired Priests of the Diocese, located within the campus of St. Joseph Parish, Cupertino. Throughout
my retirement years I will make myself available to help parishes and/or individual priests for daily or
weekend masses. I am thankful to the Lord for the gift of Priestly Ordination and Ministry and I am truly grateful
to be part of SFC community and serve you as Pastor.
Please welcome Rev. Fr. Anthony Mancuso as incoming SFC Pastor effective July 1, 2021, to be assisted
by Rev. Fr. James Okafor, and Rev. Fr. Vincent Dang as SFC Parochial Vicars effective July 1, 2021.
My congratulations to Rhonda Clark, incoming new SFC School Principal starting SY2021-2022.
My heartfelt thanks to Jane Daigle for the many memorable and great years as SFC School Principal. My
sincerest thanks to Rev. Fr. Gabriel Lee, who will be starting a new assignment as Parochial Vicar at St. Mary’s
Parish , Los Gatos, starting July 1, 2021. My sincerest thanks to Joan Schenck for 25 years of service with
our Religious Education and her numerous other responsibilities at SFC as she begins a new chapter in her life with her retirement.
With my prayers and God’s blessings,
Rev. Fr. Joe Galang
