The Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory kick-off fundraising event was a success! On Sunday, October 2nd we had a wonderful night of Bocce Ball and fellowship at a local venue here in San Jose, CA. 

 The Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory wants to share with you some background about how Divine Providence has been guiding us ever since March 2020, when COVID obliged us to move out of our usual location for worshipping God and gathering as a community.

On Friday, November 22, Canon Raphael Ueda, Rector of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory in San José, celebrated a Solemn High Mass for the Feast of St. Cecilia and led a prayer for the canonization of Servant of God Father Magin Catalá, O.F.M., at Mission Santa Clara on the Santa Clara University campus. Canon Jean-Marie Moreau, returning for a visit, served as Deacon, and gave the homily. Original "California Mission Mass" music written down by the missionaries for the converted native Americans to sing was also sung by the choir during the Mass.
