Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Peace of Christ!

The Filipino clergy, religious, and laity of the Diocese of Oakland will be embarking on a 4-year spiritual journey to celebrate the 5th Centenary of Philippine Evangelization. This Jubilee celebration bears the theme: “Celebrating 500th Anniversary of Filipino Catholic Evangelization: Our Faith, Our Journey, Our Mission.” 

While this is a Filipino celebration, this is not exclusively for Filipinos. Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, envisions this as a Diocesan celebration. 

Thus, In relation to this, we would like to ask for your assistance to participate in the activities planned. We also seek for your help to disseminate the information to your parish community in whatever means possible. Herewith attached is a document, containing details of events and dates. Kindly generously help in the printing, reproduction and circulation of this. 

We are humbly hoping for your support and prayers. 

Thank you and may God bless us all. `

In Christ, we remain,

The Filipino Clergy of the Diocese of Oakland
