Remembering Bishop Patrick McGrath

Today we mourn the loss, and celebrate the life, of Retired San Jose Bishop Patrick Joseph McGrath. What sticks out most to us at St. Joseph Financial Services is how Bishop McGrath was a strong supporter of Catholic education. He established a number of programs to help strengthen Catholic schools, including a scholarship program and a teacher training program. Bishop McGrath saw the vision of SJFS as an important part of ensuring the stability and future of Catholic schools and parishes. He gave space for us to launch the firm in its original San Jose location in 2018. We are eternally grateful for his life, leadership, and Catholic service. May perpetual light shine upon him!
