The Diocese of Stockton is blessed by committed, generous and faithful people who bring the Light of Christ to others.  Many deserve recognition.  I am pleased to announce the 17th Annual Bishop’s Awards to be held on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at the Mark Gallo Health and Fitness Center at Central Catholic High School in Modesto. The Bishop’s Awards recognize individuals who have been an inspiration through their lifelong dedication to the Catholic way of life. They are individuals who, through their love and devotion of Christ’s teachings, have made a commitment to serving others.


I am certain you have many parish volunteers and leaders who meet the criteria to join this special group of recipients. Consider members of your finance and parish councils, ministry leaders and parish school. 


I invite you to submit your nominations for those individuals who continually demonstrate commitment and support to our Catholic community. Nominees may be individuals or married couples, and you may submit more than one nominee. The Pastor’s approval from the nominee’s current parish is required on all nominations. Please keep your nominations confidential.
