ONE Campaign Update ... Thank You!!!
Facility upgrades coming to Mercy HS
We are very pleased and excited to announce that the Diocesan
Finance Council has approved the expenditure of ONE Campaign funds for two facility projects at Mercy High School. The first is the long-awaited air conditioning project for the gymnasium. The school will be installing a comprehensive
HVAC system, along with electrical upgrades. The second project is a complete replacement of all exterior windows and most of the entrance doors into the school. The new windows will
be attractive, double-pane, and energy-efficient. The doors will be store front models with tempered glass and ADA compliant hardware. These projects will greatly enhance the appearance and
comfort of the school, and in the case of the windows increase the school's energy efficiency. These are each 6 figure projects, and the goal is to complete them over this summer (2015).
Thank you to the Diocese and to all those who generously contributed to the ONE Campaign.
DIGITAL EDITION ON THIS WEBSITE
May-June issue of Catholic Herald magazine is
published, focusing on cultural feasts and devotions
The May-June issue of Catholic Herald magazine of the Diocese of Sacramento has been published. The digital edition is available on the right margin of this website or by clicking on the image at the left.
The theme of this issue is cultural feasts and devotions. The cover story features the family of Andre and Lisa DaSilva of St. Elizabeth Parish in Sacramento, who are part of the Portuguese Catholic community and are devoted to passing on their cultural and religious traditions to their family of four children.
Other feature stories include interviews with transitional deacons Victor Gutierrez and Michael Ritter, who will be ordained as priests for the Diocese of Sacramento on June 6; a feature on how the Chinese Catholic community is preserving a rich heritage for the Chinese-speaking faithful of the diocese; a feature on how Filipino Catholics in the diocese are devout in their faith and traditions; and interviews with three religious in consecrated life who say it opened doors to ministries they never imagined. 2015 is being celebrated as the Year of Consecrated Life worldwide.
Bishop Jaime Soto is publisher of the magazine, which is published six times each year and includes moving faith stories and high-quality photography about Catholics in the diocese as well as news and events of the local church. Individual faith stories are the cornerstone of Catholic Herald Magazine and columns also explore the Catholic faith and educate about the teachings of the church.
