Dear friends, Merry Christmas!

In God’s name and forever grateful, I begin my ministry in the Diocese of San Bernardino as Ordinary Bishop. I thank almighty God for the gift of our lives and for the gift of Jesus in the Eucharist and in one another. Special thanks to Bishop Barnes for all those years of faithful dedication to the Diocese. Bishop Barnes, you have shown us what “Amar es Entregarse” is all about. Thank you for your guidance throughout these difficult times. May God keep you healthy and joyful for many years to come as you begin your well-deserved retirement time. You will remain in our hearts and prayers; please pray for us! Sisters and brothers, please keep me in your prayers as I continue to pray for all of you.
As I begin my ministry, while continuing to listen and learn more about our large and diverse Diocese, I would like to build on the momentum that is clearly present here. As we begin, do not look for any big changes right away: Department Directors, Episcopal Vicars, Vicars Forane, Office of the Bishop Personnel, Vicar General, Presbyteral Council, all of them remain as they are until further notice. Thank you everybody.
There is no doubt, when looking at the events of this past year, that I am coming to lead the Diocese at a very challenging time. Yet, I have already witnessed such strong and committed faith in the people of our Church of San Bernardino. We carry within us the love of God, and our promise to do our best to live out the Gospel message every day. In my years of ministry, from the seminary days to serving as priest and then as a bishop in Chicago, I have encountered many new challenges. I have always trusted in God’s plan for me to serve His Church, and that He will give me all that I need to do his work. When I reflect on this, I have great joy and hope for our future together sisters and brothers!
Let us continue to trust our Lord as we move forward in this mission of Christ Jesus in the world. Through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe and that of Saint Bernardine, our patron saints, we put our trust in God our Father to assist us with the wisdom of the Holy Spirit as we continue our journey together serving the people of our Diocese. In Christ’s love, peace and wellbeing to all of you.

Thank you so much. May God bless you!

Bishop Rojas
