Additional observations All Saints is a university parish of the Diocese of Stockton established in 1998. It is currently in the midst of construction, building a bigger chapel and five new meeting rooms. In recent years, U.S. Bishops have been putting greater resources into university parishes, such as All Saints, recognizing them as a source of vocations, and young people who will, hopefully, start Catholic families of their own.
Sure, would be happy to drive there, would be nice if they were allowed to celebrate the Holy Mass – Gavin Newsom…
I believe the Bishops neep to invest in parishes to serve [primarily] university students. otherwise, these young people are likely to join the large group of former catholics.
I couldn’t agree with you more, mike m. College is often a time of crossroads, where students discover a fork in the road and have to choose whom or what they will serve. A strong and holy Catholic ministry is sorely needed.
