Hope and Encouragement Series

A huge and heartfelt Thank You to Fr. Nathan Cromly and all of the men who participated in the virtual Men’s Retreat on Saturday, January 16! We know it is not equivalent to an in-person retreat, but trust that it will be fruitful in your life!


It is with sincere sadness that we announce, despite our best efforts to plan a COVID safe event, the Diocese of Fresno will not allow the Kern Catholic Prayer Breakfast to take place at this time.


We recognize the feeling of isolation and frustration, many Catholic parishioners and parish priests are experiencing during this pandemic. We have an idea to hopefully continue our mission of uniting the Catholics of Kern County.


Beginning on Ash Wednesday, February 19, we will host a seven week “ Hope and Encouragement Series”. The series will be broadcast live on Kern Catholic, Facebook and Instagram each Wednesday evening from 7-7:30 PM. Each week will feature a different priest offering encouraging words and then praying the Rosary with the viewers. We hope that folks can gather around the computer and participate “together” as we, the Catholics of Kern County unite in prayer, as one Body in Christ.


Please check back for details to be released around February 1, 2021. 

Thank You to...
