Bishop-Elect Thomas Daly's Episcopal Ordination (San Jose, CA)

Some photos captured from the Diocese of San Jose's video feed online (UStream) of Bishop-Elect Thomas Daly's Episcopal Ordination that took place today, May 25, 2011. Kudos to the Diocese for making this webstream available online. The number of viewers who watched online appears to have exceeded the number of people who were actually present at the Cathedral! Amazing how technology works! Let us keep the new Auxiliary Bishop Daly in our prayers!

Four new priests for the Diocese of Oakland, California!

It has been quite sometime since I last posted on the blog (juggling family life and work hasn't been easy these couple of months, not to mention blogging!), but I wanted to just quickly mention about the four priests that were ordained two days ago (May 14, 2011) by his Excellency, The Most Reverend Bishop Salvatore J. Cordileone at the Christ the Light Cathedral. It was unfortunate that due to a conflict with my schedule, I wasn't able to make it on their Ordination Mass. However, I'd like to request that you keep the new Fathers, Fr. Alexander Q. Castillo, Fr. Edilberto Castanas, Fr. Gerald Pedrera and Fr. Rafal Duda in your prayers.
