Additional observations St. Isadore Church is a parish of the Diocese of Oakland. It was established in 1910, and is in an Oakland suburb.
I can’t remember any time that Danville was referred to as a suburb of Oakland.
Why not? It’s the closest big city. Danville is in the Oakland diocese, not the SF Arch.
I love Fr. Matt Murray. I went to his ordination at the Oakland cathedral. He used to be pastor at Divine Mercy Church in Oakland. We miss him on this side of the hills. Yes, he really is a good conservative guy with lots of common sense.
