The Diocese of Orange and Christ Cathedral will soon be breaking ground on the St. Callistus Chapel and Crypts, a new worship space underneath Christ Cathedral that will serve generations of Catholics throughout Orange County. 👏

“I did not forget the sacrifice of the St. Callistus parishioners when they left their church, and I am pleased to name the chapel for the old parish,” said Bishop Kevin Vann. “We are excited and blessed to add another location on campus to worship our Lord and pay respect to the founding members of the St. Callistus parish. As the focal hub for our Orange County Catholic community, having this new chapel makes us an even stronger beacon.”

“We have such a huge community here,” Fr. Angelos, vicar general and moderator of the curia for the Diocese said. He noted that given the sizable population the Christ Cathedral campus regularly serves — some 12,000 people celebrate Mass in multiple languages on any given weekend — the chapel is needed as an additional worship space.
