Welcome to the Diocese of Orange’s virtual tour of the Christ Cathedral campus, the spiritual home of the Bishop of Orange.
This tour incorporates comprehensive, 360-degree views of all major sites within the 34-acre campus: the Christ Cathedral, Arboretum, Cultural Center, Tower of Hope, Chapel in the Sky and Great Plaza.
Embedded throughout the tour are more than 30 videos that go into every detail about various aspects of the Garden Grove property, from its sacred artwork and stunning architecture to its religious artifacts and history dates to its era as the Crystal Cathedral under the Rev. Robert Schuller.
The Very Rev. Christopher Smith, episcopal vicar and rector of Christ Cathedral since the Diocese of Orange purchased the campus in 2012, narrates the videos and provides important context.
Future expansions of the virtual tour will cover the newly expanded Cathedral Memorial Gardens cemetery grounds and Our Lady of La Vang Shrine, which was blessed in July 2021.
We hope you enjoy the tour!
