Sister Felicia, who is in charge of Chautauqua, is looking for volunteers within the parish to help coordinate and plan this years event. Chautauqua will take place here at SLOT-SCJ on October 8th, 2016. It is intended it will form part of our Centenary celebrations and as you remember, it was last celebrated here in 2006, and a great success. Sister Felicia has an organized team from around the Diocese, but would like additional members from our parish. If you are interested, please contact Colin in the office and he will be able to update you on forth-coming meetings and provide contact information with Sister Felicia.

9TH Annual Gala (Rescheduled)
November 13, 2016 4:00PM - 8:00PM
at the Columbo Club
Come celebrate our 100TH Birthday of St. Lawrence O'Toole - St. Cyril of Jerusalem Church
This year we will be honoring Seniors of the Parish who have been registered for 50 years or more !
Annual Gala was previously scheduled for June 5, 2016 but since we are having our first Latino led Dinner on May 7, 2016, we thought the dinners we scheduled too close together.
The second half of 2016 in particular is going to be exciting due to the amount of activities we have planned. These include the Luau, International Dinner and the Gala. Between August and November we have one fundraiser / social each month. We look forward to seeing you at these events !

Founded in 1966 as the joint National Conference of Catholic Bishops (NCCB)and United States Catholic Conference (USCC), it iscomposed of all active and retired members of the Catholic hierarchy (i.e., diocesan, coadjutor, and auxiliary bishops and the ordinary of the PersonalOrdinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter) in the UnitedStates and the Territory of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Inthe Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the bishops in thesix dioceses form their own episcopal conference, thePuerto Rican Episcopal Conference (Spanish,Conferencia Episcopal Puertorriqueña).

The USCCB adopted its current name in July 2001. Theorganization is a registered corporation based in Washington, D.C. As with all bishops' conferences,certain decisions and acts of the USCCB must receivethe recognitio, or approval of the Roman dicasteries,which are subject to the immediate and absoluteauthority of the Pope.
Welcome to the Diocese of Oakland! This website was created to advance our diocesan mission to know Christ better and to make Him better known.
In every age, the Church must use the best available means of communication to proclaim the truth of the Gospel. And so Pope Benedict XVI enjoined us to be a part of the Internet revolution: "In this field too we are called to proclaim our faith that Christ is God."
You are encouraged to learn more about our diocese through the information gathered here. Like all websites, ours is a work in progress. Please return often as we add information we hope will broaden your understanding of the work done in His name by the local church.
