Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

In 1981, the Diocese of San Jose was established. We were born out of the Archdiocese of San Francisco and our first bishop was the Most Rev. Pierre DuMaine. Our diocese covers all of Santa Clara County that has over half a million Catholics.
This year, our Diocese is celebrating 40 wonderful years of ministry to God’s people in the Valley of St. Clare. This is a year of gratitude not only to God but also to all of you for your continued support of the different areas of ministry.  Read more...
