This is a ticketed event. Please pray for our Diocese as we prepare for the Dedication.[wpcdt-countdown id="30336"]
We Catholics in our life of worship reverence signs and symbols. In fact, it has been said that the language of worship is the language of sign and symbol. From a small portion of bread and wine, to water gushing in abundance, to clouds of incense rising to heaven, to hands gently laid on one’s head in loving reverence, these and so many more gestures within the rhythm of our liturgy ‘speak’ their profound and grace-filled meaning. And, at the heart of that meaning is the celebration of the Holy Presence of our God who makes his dwelling place with us in His Anointed Son, the living Christ.Read More
Almighty ever-living God,
Through baptism, you gave us the gift of being part of the Church, the Body of Christ in the world;
And, you have given us the gift of being part of the Diocese of Orange, a growing community on a pilgrimage of faith together.
Grateful for the many blessings of over 40 years as a local church, we eagerly anticipate the dedication and opening of Christ Cathedral as the center of our diocese and a place to gather, worship, and witness to the love of Christ.
Be with us as we continue growing as a vibrant community of Faith under the leadership of our Bishop, Kevin Vann, and his auxiliary Bishops Timothy Freyer and Thomas Thanh Thai Nguyen.
Help each of us to put our gifts at the service of Christ’s mission of salvation and unity, so that we may truly be “Missionary Disciples” to continually build up the Body of Christ.
Help us live always from a spirit of abundance and gratitude.
Guide us as we plan for and discern the future of our diocese, giving priority to evangelization and faith formation, improving its governance and financial sustainability, and supporting our Catholic schools.
Give us the mind and heart of your Son, Jesus, whose life, death, and resurrection are the source and model of our ministry.
Send us the gifts of the Holy Spirit, especially wisdom, understanding, and fortitude, so that our efforts may bear fruit according to your will.
