The Diocese of Orange is the growing Catholic Community in Orange County, California
Our vision is to establish and support dynamic, vibrant parishes and schools which welcome all to live the Gospel with faith, joy, charity and unity. Our Diocese encourages each person to have an active life of faith that is integrated and woven into the fabric of their daily lives through the community and sacramental life of the Church.
We value working collaboratively together “with humility, gentleness, and patience, maintaining our unity in the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Together we seek: To worship by listening actively to the Word, praying for the needs of all, actively participating in the liturgy, and receiving God’s grace in the Sacraments. To evangelize by the way we share our lives and treat each other, by the Gospel that we share, and the strength we find in our community of faith.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19- 20. We are diverse Catholics united in Christ. We follow the Gospel’s call, live out our faith and share our lives in service to others.
