The April issue of Catholic Herald Magazine, the magazine of the Diocese of Sacramento, has been published. The digital edition is available on the right margin of this website or at the image to the left of this story.
The theme of the April issue is diocese’s upcoming ONE Capital Campaign, including a cover story interview with Bishop Jaime Soto, reflecting on the diocese’s strategic plan and the upcoming capital campaign. He also discusses in the interview some of the priorities of the campaign, including the formation of the laity, Catholic education, youth and young adults, and the diocese’s Spanish-language radio station, Radio Santisimo Sacramento.
On Sept. 8, more than 450 people gathered for The Catholic Advantage Celebration, a new annual event to recognize the many achievements of Catholic schools and all those who make them what they are today.
During the evening, Msgr. Edward J. Kavanagh (shown above, right, with Bishop Jaime Soto) and the Christian Brothers were honored as the recipients of the two inaugural Lifetime Achievement Awards for their longstanding and impactful contributions to Catholic schools in the diocese. For more than a half-century, Msgr. Kavanagh led St. Rose Parish and St. Patrick’s School and Orphanage in south Sacramento, while the Christian Brothers have made a lasting impact on the diocese that will be felt for years to come.
