With 57 churches, 5 centers and 35 schools within our diocese, we have a seat for you.
Our vibrant community of 1.3 million Catholics is on a journey of faith together – growing closer to God and another as we explore, experience, and share the mystery of Christ. Under the leadership of Bishop Kevin W. Vann, the OC Diocese works to establish and support dynamic, vibrant parishes and schools welcoming all to live the Gospel with faith, joy, charity and unity. We joyfully welcome you as part of this journey!

While no one is required to make use of this dispensation, those who do so must abstain from meat on another day (not on a Sunday or Friday) during the Lenten season.
