Participate in a
Holy Thursday Tradition
You’re invited to participate in the “Visitation of Seven Churches,” hosted by parishes throughout the Diocese of Orange. On April 6, after Holy Thursday Mass in your parish, continue to six other churches throughout the night to pray and meditate on the Lord’s Passion. Bring a friend or family member to take part in this special tradition!
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!
