Join Bishop Soto, women religious, and our evangelical brothers and sisters for an ecumenical prayer vigil.

You may have seen that the LA Dodgers honored the so-called Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (SPI), which mock religious sisters, Jesus, and our Catholic faith.

The California bishops condemned this action in a statement, but now, a State Senator has invited SPI to be honored on the floor of the California State Capitol on Monday, June 5th.

Encouraging the ridicule of our faith - and, in a particular way, mocking religious sisters who sacrifice their lives as brides of Christ - is unacceptable.

The event's tone is not political or confrontational but meant to be peaceful, hopeful, and honoring of the incredible work that religious sisters have done for so many years in California as a witness to the beauty of our faith. Please bring rosaries, and leave protest signs at home.

Bishop Emeritus William K. Weigand will offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament on Sunday, June 4, 2023 at 10:00 AM in thanksgiving to God for sixty years of priestly ordination. All are invited to celebrate this significant milestone with him.

Northern California has been blessed by this devoted disciple and zealous shepherd. The courage, wisdom, and generous charity of Bishop William serve as an inspiration for all the faithful, religious, and clergy in the Diocese of Sacramento.

May Jesus, the Good Shepherd, bless his faithful servant with continued health and grace. Ad multos annos!
