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.
