2 IN THE DIOCESE June 11, 2019 | The Valley Catholic Rosio Gonzalez Joins Diocese of San Jose as Chief Operating Officer Saint John Paul II once said “Life with Christ is a Wonderful Adventure.” For the Diocese of San Jose and Rosio Gonzalez life’s adventures are about to merge. Bishop Oscar Cantú announced in mid-May that Gonzalez will become the Chief Operating Officer for the Diocese. Gonzalez is expected to begin her position in late June. It is a homecoming for Gonzalez, who was born in Gilroy and is a gradu- ate of San Jose State University. She and Bishop Cantú worked together in the Archdiocese of San Antonio when the Bishop was an Auxiliary Bishop and Gonzalez was the Department Head for Pastoral Offices. “It is wonderful to be back home af- ter living away for 17 years,” said Gon- zalez, during a meeting with Chancery staff. “I am really blessed to be working with Bishop Cantú and all of you. I can’t imagine being anywhere else.” Gonzalez holds a Master of Social Work with Specialization in Manage- ment from Washington University in Saint Louis and a Bachelor of Social Work from San Jose State Univer- sity. In addition to her knowledge and expertise, she also brings a commitment of service to and passion for the Church. In addition to working with Bishop Cantú in San Antonio, Gonzalez led Catholic Charities of Idaho as its execu- tive director, served in the Archdiocese of Washington DC as a Deputy Director for Catholic Charities, and as President of the Consortium of Catholic Acad- emies for the last five years. Gonzalez has been successful in spearheading the strategic direction and overall management of these organizations, while building strong collaborations and fiscal strength. “Rosio is someone who will help us align our offices,” said Bishop Cantú. “She is very mission driven. She will help us in communicating effectively with each other and those we serve. I am delighted to work with her again.” On a personal side, Gonzalez has been married to William Rainford, who is currently the Director of Parish Op- erations at Saint Mark’s Catholic Com- munity in Boise, Idaho, for 22 years. They met at San Jose State University. Their daughter, Mayra Rainford and grandson, Alessandro, who is 2 years old, live in Houston, Texas. “My role is to support all of you in any way I can,” said Gonzalez to her new co-workers. “We will learn to collaborate with each other and serve with each other as we execute the mis- sions and the desires of Bishop Cantú and the Church.” Appointments of Bishop Oscar Cantú June 9-15 Sun/Sat USCCB – General Assembly.
