Welcome to the Cathedral
Welcome! Our parish community is made up of families and singles, children and seniors, all representing a wide diversity of ethnicities, races, varied interests, and backgrounds. People who come through our Great Doors include tourists, visitors, current members, friends from throughout the Diocese, and seekers open to where God may be leading them.
The size and array of services, classes, programs and events can be overwhelming. To help you get connected, we recommend the following:
Worship with us: The first step to becoming involved in any parish community is to worship there. Participating in the Mass lets you try out and see if this community is the one which you wish to make your spiritual home. For a list of our regularly scheduled masses.
Join us for Hospitality: following the Sunday 8:00 AM Mass (Vietnamese), 10:00 AM Stational Mass (English), 12:00 Noon Mass (English), and 2:00 PM Mass (Spanish). Hospitality after Mass is an informal, relaxed time to meet parishioners, clergy, and staff of The Cathedral of Christ the Light.
Stop by the Visitors' Information Services “VIS” desk: If you would like information about our Cathedral, the parish, faith formation, events and membership, or just how to get involved, see all the information here as well as on the kiosk nearby.
The Cathedral of Christ the Light is the home parish of the Oakland Diocese and a pivotal point of worship for Catholics throughout Oakland. We invite you to experience Mass in this sacred, light-infused space. Whether you are visiting us for the first time, or you are a parishioner of long standing, we invite you to explore these pages to stay informed about our parish.
If you have questions, call the Parish Office at (510) 832-5057 or to register as member of the parish.
