In 2001, Bishop William K. Weigand established the Office of Social Service Ministry in a renewal of the diocesan commitment to serving the poor, immigrants, the disabled and those in need.
The Office integrates the functions of:
Development and support of parish social ministries
Administration of the Catholic Charities organizations and programs
Networking with other community and faith-based programs and ministries
Liaison with the national offices of Catholic Relief Services, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and Catholic Charities USA
Liaison with the California Catholic Conference
The Office coordinates with other diocesan ministries and with the Annual Catholic Appeal.
