pic_mcgrathDear Friends, Queridos Amigos, Các Ban thân mến,

 

It is with great joy that I welcome you to the Diocese of San Jose!  I, along with Bishop Garcia of Monterey, are grateful not only for the collaboration between our own dioceses but also, the collaborative efforts with offices and ministries in the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the Dioceses of Oakland and Stockton.  This collaboration will certainly make this Santa Clara Faith Formation Conference one to remember as we gather from all over Northern California and beyond.  Yes, we gather as a people of faith in a world filled with many challenges.  However, as this year’s theme reminds us, God is Always with Us! I pray that in these days we all explore and discover new ways to evangelize and share our faith which will enable us to connect and accompany others on the path of discipleship to Jesus Christ.

¡Con gran alegría les doy la bienvenida a la Diócesis de San José! Yo, junto con el Obispo García de Monterrey, estamos agradecidos no sólo por la colaboración entre nuestras Diócesis, sino también por los esfuerzos de colaboración con las oficinas diocesanas y ministerios de la Arquidiócesis de San Francisco y las Diócesis de Oakland y Stockton.  Esta colaboración ciertamente hará que esta Conferencia de Formación de Fe de Santa Clara sea para recordar cuando nos reunimos de todo el norte de California y más allá. Sí, nos reunimos como un pueblo de fe en un mundo lleno de muchos desafíos. Sin embargo, como nos recuerda el lema de este año, ¡Dios siempre está con nosotros! Hago oración para que en estos días exploremos y descubramos nuevas maneras de evangelizar y compartir nuestra fe que nos permita comunicar y acompañar a otros en el camino del discipulado a Jesucristo.


 

With every best wish and kind regard, I remain,

Con mis mejores deseos y bendiciones,

Xin gửi đến Quí Bạn lời chúc tốt đẹp nhất và lòng chân thành quí mến,

 

Sincerely yours / Sinceramente / Trân trọng kính chào các Bạn,

Bishop of San Jose / Obispo de San José / Giám Muc San Jose

As Bishop of the Diocese of San Jose, and on behalf of Archbishop Cordileone, Bishop Barber, Bishop Blaire, Bishop Garcia and Bishop Daly, I would like to welcome you to the Faith Formation Conference 2014. This year, the theme of the Conference is Living the Gospel Joyfully a theme that echoes Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, the Joy of the Gospel.  I pray that in these days, you will find the inspiration you most need for “a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ.” Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE
