Walkabout Week begins on Sunday, January 13. As we enter the last stage of the discernment process for the next bishop of San Diego, I want to encourage everyone in the diocese to read the biographical information available for each candidate on the diocesan website.

If you have any questions, please contact the Rev. Martha Anderson.
