Strategic Plan


Project Siempre Adelante, the Diocese of Orange’s forward-looking Strategic Plan for 2024-2029, reignites evangelization through supporting parishes, strategic youth outreach, and a strengthened Catholic school identity, all guided by responsible stewardship and a collaborative spirit.
