Serving the Catholic Community of Castro Valley

OLG’s 75th Anniversary Book

“People of Faith: 75 Years of Community at Our Lady of Grace Parish”, written by longtime parishioner Mark Vaz, is a beautiful hard bound book and is truly a treasure!

Our Lady of Grace Church, a Catholic community in Castro Valley, California, celebrated 75 years of community in 2022. Parishioner and renowned author, Mark Cotta Vaz, compiles a wonderful history of the parish and interviews many members, sharing their memories. Community as sustenance is the thread woven through this history. As Mark so eloquently writes “As we chart our way to our heavenly home, it is a divine provision for us as wandering pilgrims to be nourished by the equation of love and the resulting peace that wafts like a cool breeze across the desert vastness.”

Cost is $14 per copy at the Parish Office. Cash or Check please. Your copy may be autographed by Mark upon request.
