From the Desk of Auxiliary Bishop Ramón Bejarano

Greetings to everyone!
Most of you have already heard that the United States bishops called for a three year National Eucharistic Revival beginning last June. I would like to share the information about an Online Eucharistic Congress [this] week, September 22-24. I am so sorry for the short notice. Unfortunately, I was out of the country and I was not able to promote it. The online congress conferences can help us strengthen our faith and become more Eucharistic people. Registration is free.
If you want more information of the National Eucharistic Revival, you can visit their website,

Alpha Come & See

September 23, 6:00 PM, School Auditorium
Alpha is a casual, non-judgmental place for atheists, agnostics, non-Christians, fallen-away Catholics, and those who have questions about faith to have open, honest conversations about God. Our next Alpha session starts Friday, September 23, 6:00 PM in the School Auditorium. 
Each session begins with a meal, followed by an engaging video followed by an honest dialogue about life, faith, and meaning. Come to the first night, or come every week; there’s no pressure, no cost, and no commitment. It's best when you bring a friend. 


Synod Survey / Encuesta del Sínodo

Synod Synthesis Reports

The following reports echo the voices of the People of God in our local churches. Over 10,000 youth, young adults, adults, and members of marginalized groups voiced their sorrows, joys, and hopes for a more unified and synodal Chruch. More than 400 small-group sessions took place throughout San Diego and Imperial counties, bringing together members and non-members from all walks of faith in fruitful dialogue.
