San José Coadjutor Bishop Oscar Cantú Visits Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory


On Saturday, March 2, 2019, His Excellency Oscar Cantú, Coadjutor Bishop of the San José Diocese, visited the Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory. The coadjutor (co-assister) assists the diocesan bishop, and in modern times, a coadjutor automatically succeeds the diocesan bishop upon the latter's retirement, removal, or death; Coadjutor Bishop Cantú will succeed current-Bishop Patrick McGrath.

Canon Matthew Talarico, U.S. Provincial Superior of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, celebrated a Solemn High Mass with Canon Raphael Ueda, oratory chaplain, as Deacon and Abbe Kevin Kerscher from the Oakland Apostolate, as Subdeacon. 


Bishop Cantú attended the Mass in choir and preached on Our Lady's closeness to her Son.



The church was as full as it is at a regular Sunday Mass with members of the oratory, who came to support and to welcome the future bishop of the diocese, and the reception for the bishop in the Cristo Rey school cafeteria after Mass was also well attended.
