Father Francisco Velazquez, left, pastor of St. Joseph Parish in Sacramento, meets with Kurt Chismark, right, executive director of Catholic Social Service of Sacramento, and clinical social worker Claudia Alvarez to make final plans for a new bilingual counseling program at the parish."I realized there were people seeing me needing spiritual direction," Father Velazquez said, "but there were very human needs too -- the need for counseling and therapy I could not provide."Describing St. Joseph as "a very special parish, a community faced with social justice issues," Father Velazquez said that while 80 percent of parishioners are Latino, the new parish-based counseling program seeks to address the pastoral needs of the entire community.By providing parish office space for the counseling program, Father Velazquez envisions clients feeling "confident and comfortable" in discussing very personal issues of concern.In retrospect it was providential that one of Father Velazquez's parishioners is Alberto Velazquez, lead organizer with the North Valley Sponsoring Committee.
