Archbishop's Circle

Begun in 2016, the Archbishop’s Circle is a growing group of individuals who donate funds to be used at the discretion of Archbishop Cordileone for special projects and initiatives that he has identified. 

In 2017, Circle funds are supporting the following activities:

  • Implementing a Stewardship program within the archdiocese
  • The Walk for Life
  • The Rosary Rally
  • A pilgrimage to Lourdes for our seminarians and other young men discerning a vocation
  • A digital communication conference to assist parishes
  • Escuela Pastoral - the new pastoral school for Spanish-speaking Catholics
  • An expansion of offerings for Marriage Preparation

Members of the Circle have the opportunity to gather for retreats, dinners, a tour of the Seminary, and other select events.

There are already nearly 60 members of the Archbishop’s Circle, ranging in age from their 20s to over 90!
