Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I am thankful for the warm welcome I have received from the wonderful people throughout our Diocese as I celebrate my second year this March serving as your Bishop. What a blessing it has been to participate in local confirmations, parish celebrations, celebrate Mass with our migrant families and youth leaders, and welcome our three hopeful candidates in discernment to the St. John Vianney House of Formation last summer: Brandon Salas, Osvaldo Zuniga, and Saul Perez. It gives me great joy to work in collaboration with our schools and parishes as we bring the good news of Jesus Christ to others through our specialized ministries of the Pastoral Center.
Your support – your “faith in action” - makes it possible for us to continue working together as missionary disciples of Jesus to strengthen our parishes and serve our families and friends throughout our great Diocese.
Please prayerfully consider making a sacrificial gift to the 2020 Bishop’s Ministry Appeal so that we can continue working together to “proclaim, share and live” our faith – all for His glory!
With gratitude, and in the Peace of Christ,
Most Reverend Myron J. Cotta Roman Catholic Bishop of Stockton
