March 13, 2020

To Our Community in the Diocese of San José:

Santa Clara County, together with the greater Seattle area, has been at the epicenter of the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the United States.  Over the past few weeks, our Diocese of San José has followed the guidance of Santa Clara County health officials in responding to the presence of the virus. The Governor of California has weighed in recently requesting that no gatherings assemble with more than 250 persons. In my recent discussions with county health officials, I have been told that we have reached the exponential phase of the epidemic, with the number of those testing positive for the virus expected to rise dramatically.

As a Diocese, our top priority remains the health and safety of our families, children, and the vulnerable of our community. Out of an abundance of caution, we have closed all Diocesan school facilities from today, Friday, March 13, through Friday, March 27. In addition, I am requesting that all parishes, missions, and chapels in the Diocese of San José suspend all public Masses beginning Saturday, March 14, until further notice.   Baptisms, weddings, and funerals may be celebrated but should be limited to immediate family.  Faith Formation classes also should be suspended until further notice.  All parish gatherings are being suspended until further notice.

With the preceding in mind, I have issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass during this time for all Catholics in the Diocese of San José.

Though public Masses are being suspended, I encourage parishioners to remain connected to their parish community and to pray for each other. The Diocese and several parishes will continue to livestream Sunday Masses in various languages. Information on these Masses and other spiritual resources are provided on our Diocesan Response to Coronavirus webpage at dsj.org/coronavirus.

During this difficult time, I ask that our priests, deacons, religious, and parish staffs remain attentive to the needs of shut-ins, the elderly, the sick, and the vulnerable through creative outreach.  Priests will remain available for individual confessions and urgent pastoral needs, including the anointing of the sick (Last Rites). I also encourage our parishes to reach out to parishioners through phone campaigns, social media, and other methods.

We are profoundly saddened that we are not able to celebrate the Eucharist as a community, but we are reminded that Christ always remains with us, especially in times of uncertainty such as these.  Be assured of my continued prayers for you and your families.

 
Yours in Christ,

Bishop Oscar Cantú

The 2020 theme for the Annual Diocesan Appeal is, ‘Encountering Christ – Faith in Action.’  One of the constant themes of Pope Francis in his preaching and exhortations is our call to become ‘missionary disciples.’  That term has two distinct, but complementary, elements to it: following Christ as his disciples and being sent to witness to God’s love, truth, and beauty.  So, too, does our 2020 theme bear these two important elements: encountering Christ and putting faith into action.

Your ADA gift enables us in our Evangelization work and outreach, particularly in the areas of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, Catechesis and Faith Formation, the Hispanic Apostolate, Social Justice Ministry, the Institute for Leadership in Ministry, the Formation and Training of Seminarians and Deacon Candidates, who are our future priests and deacons, and the Ongoing Formation of those already ordained. Only your gift, combined with the gifts of others throughout our Diocese, can make all of this possible.

Please consider a gift to the ADA to help support the day-to-day services that our parishes rely on for support. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Those responsible for the spiritual and material goods of the Church are entrusted with

the stewardship of others’ gifts, and are ultimately responsible to the Lord. As a faithful

steward, the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Jose is committed to maintaining the highest

standards of conduct and ethics. The mission of the Church requires no less.

To this end, the Diocese of San Jose has partnered with EthicsPoint to provide a

confidential method to hear suggestions, concerns or reports of financial misconduct.

The EthicsPoint Hotline (1-888-325-7863) allows parishioners, volunteers, employees,

vendors and others to make confidential reports regarding the mismanagement of parish

or school property, cash and all other assets. Reportable are also issues of apparent

disregard of policies pertaining to the proper management of these assets. Suspected

unethical behavior by employees, volunteers, staff, trustees, officers, directors, agents or

contractors of the Diocese should also be made to EthicsPoint. All reports may be made

anonymously.

It is the hope of the Diocese that EthicsPoint will assist in the protection of all who

interact with the parishes, schools, chancery and other diocesan agencies.

EthicsPoint accepts reports of financial misconduct through its website

or its Hotline: 1-888-325-7863.

A complete report will be made to diocesan leadership, so that leadership

may review and provide feedback and resolution for the issues that are reported.

Please direct any questions that you may have about EthicsPoint or reporting concerns

by calling 408-983-0241
