40 Days for Life Spring/Lenten Prayer Campaign through March 28

Knowing that "with God, all things are possible," people of faith and conscience unite in 40 days of Prayer and Fasting, Community Outreach, and Peaceful Vigil for an end to abortion. This ministry is endorsed by Bishop Soto and all Catholics are encouraged to participate. The public centerpiece of this ministry is a peaceful prayer vigil, which is being held in cities throughout the world. After just 5 days of peaceful vigil we already know of 15 babies saved! Thank you so much for your prayers!  The two prayer vigils nearby are in Sacramento at FPA Abortion Clinic, 2322 Butano Drive and San Andreas at Hwy 49 & Mountain Ranch Rd.  Please visit for additional information and to sign up for vigil hours.


Called together by Jesus Christ, who came to restore us to friendship with the Father, we continue the work of our Savior to bring salvation to all peoples through the life-giving Church He established.


Inspired by the example of St. Katharine Drexel, we strive to serve the Lord by:


  • Making the Eucharist the source and summit of our lives

  • Building intentional community

  • Preaching the Gospel to the people of Amador County

  • Forming missionary disciples

  • Reaching out to those in need
