Bishop Stephen Blaire of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Stockton is looking forward to Pope Francis' first-ever visit to the U.S.
St. Anthony's Catholic School Principal Mary Lou Hoffman started her Catholic education career as a teacher for St. Luke's Catholic School in Stockton and was there for 16 years.
When inquired about the underlying mission of the St. Stanislaus Church in Modesto, Reverend Ramon Bejarano said that the church not only strives to live in religious unity with parishioners within the Catholic faith, but also with members of the broader community.

VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope Francis is expected to raise issues ranging from climate change to income inequality when he visits Cuba and the United States Sept. 19-27.

It does not have the glam and glitz of Los Angeles, skyscrapers of San Francisco or golden beaches of Malibu. And that's a plus, because the 209 area code is filled with quaint towns like Lockeford, famous for their one-of-a-kind foods, natural skyscrapers of majestic Yosemite National Park and the gold mining towns of Mother Lode. If you are based in Manteca, head out north, south or east, in all directions there are towns to be explored and treasures to be found.
Those who have never been to Turlock need to only to check out one area to see the best that the city has to offer: downtown.

But Manteca is more than that; the up-and-coming city nestled in the heart of San Joaquin Valley is truly a treat to all five senses.

The Manteca Senior Center is a 10,000-plus square-foot, multi-purpose facility at 295 Cherry Lane serving adults and seniors age 50 and above throughout the greater Manteca area.
For the nearly 500 members of Turlock Senior Citizens, the Turlock Senior Center is more than just a meeting place to find companionship, entertainment, and activities with other senior citizens.
Sometimes, what is actually on the lunch menu is the farthest thing from the minds of diners at local senior centers, as the sites are just as much designed for socializing as eating.
If you can everything about a community by how well they take care of their seniors then Lathrop deserves an award.
