Our objective was to expand our influence and bring the Indonesian Catholic community together to avoid it being proselytized by another church.

 In August of 2001 we joined the Diocese at each church, resulting in ICC- DSB (Indonesian Catholic Community-Diocese of San Bernardino) for the Diocese of San Bernardino. The ICC-DSB chose their own chaplain, organizing Mass twice a month at the St. Joseph The Worker Church in Loma Linda and worshiping word twice a month. ICC-DSB is also involved in the local parish of St. Joseph the Worker Church and engages further in the Diocese of San Bernardino by joining the Asian Pacific Ministry, collaborating with other ethnic groups, and participating at the Bishop’s Dinner event. 

 We have welcomed Bishop Gerald Barnes at our Indonesian Mass; participated in Asian-Pacific Formation Day, the Diocesan Migration Mass, Chrism Mass, and Bishop Barnes’ 25th Anniversary Mass.

 There is a sense of familiarity with other ethnic groups through having regular meetings that raise the mutual sense of belonging in Diocese San Bernardino. We respect and appreciate other ethnic appearances in collaboration. Knowing each other’s ethnicity builds up interpersonal cooperation between ethnic people in our community.
