Bishop Michael J. Barber

Speaks at our Tuesday, December 10th breakfast


Join Catholics at Work on Tuesday morning, December 10th, to meet Oakland Bishop Michael J. Barber, the compelling and inspiring leader for the half a million Catholics in our diocese.

He is a pastor, Jesuit scholar, and military chaplain (until his recent retirement). Bishop Barber leads our Diocese with powerful uplifting and noble balance. 

Recently, he summarized his vision on the diocesan website "Our Diocese is a place of prayer where we embody the corporal and spiritual works of mercy, strengthen parishioners' Sunday experience, and form Missionary Disciples." Bishop Barber will expand on these themes in his presentation.

The C@W breakfast begins at 7am (Bishop Barber will say mass at 6:30am) at Crow Canyon Country Club in Danville and ends at 8:15 am. Please register now by clicking the Register Button to the left.


Catholics at Work is an outreach ministry of the Oakland diocese, whose purpose is to bring energized people, lay and clerical, national and local, to discuss vital faith-based programs and challenges and to bring Christ into our daily lives.


The C@W calendar includes breakfast and evening programs from September through May.

Join us to hear these speakers and be part of our faith-based gatherings! Bring a friend. Find out about our other events by clicking the Calendar of Event link to the left.
