A comprehensive strategy is being crafted to strengthen Catholic culture in Orange County and propel the growth of the Diocese of Orange far into the future. The Diocese’s strategic plan, called Project Fidelium, comes as the dedication of Christ Cathedral approaches and Catholic parishes in Orange County continue to welcome new parishioners. Christ Cathedral is undergoing an extensive renovation of its interior and will be dedicated on July 17, 2019. The cathedral campus in Garden Grove will be the spiritual home for Orange County’s 1.5 million Catholics, making the Diocese of Orange the 12th largest Diocese in the U.S. Most Rev. Kevin Vann, Bishop of Orange, created the initial framework for Project Fidelium in 2016, the 40th anniversary of the Diocese of Orange.
