St. Frances Cabrini Parish welcomes Fr. Daniel Urcia! Fr. Daniel is a Catholic Chaplain for the Department of Restorative Justice in the Office of Social Ministries. He works full time as a prison chaplain in the two adult Correctional Facilities of the County of Santa Clara. He was the former pastor of St. Elizabeth Parish in Milpitas and St. John Vianney Parish in Alum Rock, San Jose.
A native of the Philippines, he was ordained to the priesthood in 1989 as a member of the Somascan Fathers and joined the Diocese of San Jose in 1998. Fr. Daniel will continue to serve full time this important ministry as he takes up residence at our rectory. Fr. Daniel, like Monsignor Manrique before him, wants to become involved in our Cabrini Parish and parishioners will be seeing him at Sunday and daily Masses in the future.
