Bishop Appeal

We have begun the annual Bishop’s Appeal in the Diocese of Oakland. This is a yearly appeal and not just a 2nd collection. It is a vital, annual commitment that you can spread out over ten months. We realize that many of you have been most generous to Reclaiming Christ’s Mission Together, the Diocesan Capital Campaign and may be still paying your pledges. This Bishop’s appeal provides the support for the day to day operations on the ministries and services essential to the Church of the East Bay. We hope that each family will be generous and make a gift and a commitment as your means allow. Thank you to all who have made their pledges already.

Act of Mercy for the Year of Mercy

The Diocese of Oakland, in partnership with Catholic Charities of the East Bay and the Alameda District Attorney's Office, will partner to open a Safe House for minors (11-17) who have been sexually trafficked. The Bay Area is a nationwide hub for Human Trafficking, and these children are the most victimized and vulnerable. Together, we can bring healing, hope and dignity to their lives. In conjunction with the opening of the Safe House, Catholic Charities of the East Bay and the Office of Life and Justice will coordinate a campaign to build awareness and mobilize action in all 84 parishes. If you would like to assist with this work please contact Steve Mullin at smullun@cceb.org or Cristina Hernández at chernández@oakdiocese.org .
