The MCO is a multicultural and multiethnic group whose mission is to serve the church, the parish school and our surrounding community through financial support, educational scholarships and donations of time and talent. The MCO partners with fellow SFC organizations and sister churches within the San Jose Diocese to fulfill these goals.
Events include a Crab Feed Dinner & Dance to benefit our high school and college scholarship program, a Zumbathon to benefit the needy in our community, an annual MCO family picnic and a Virgen the Guadalupe Mass & Reception. We also participate in parish-sponsored events such as Fiesta, Lenten Soup Nights and SFC Thanksgiving and Christmas food and toy drives.
The MCO is also a spiritual and social organization. Many of our members have been active for over 30 years and consider each other family. Members do not have to be of Spanish-speaking or Mexican descent to join. Members do have to be registered Catholics within the San Jose Diocese. Membership dues are $10/year and are due in January.
The MCO meets in the Parish Center on the 1st Tuesday of every month. Meetings are generally two hours long. During the meetings we review Parish Council updates, plan upcoming events, socialize and pray together. If you are interested in becoming a member or attending one of our meetings, please call or email Darla Leis at (408) 784-6644 / firstname.lastname@example.org
