The Need

The need for our first-ever Diocesan Capital Campaign is prompted by two main factors: Growth and Opportunity

Catholic Community Growth

The Diocese of Orange is experiencing vibrant growth:

  • 1.2 million Catholics are in OC, or about 40% of the total population
  • It is now the 10th largest diocese in the U.S.
  • Financial resources are essential to support our expanding Catholic community

Emerging Opportunities Now

Immediate opportunities exist to connect, share and reinvigorate the missionary spirit of our faithful through:

  • Renovating and dedicating of our Christ Cathedral
  • Supporting our local parishes, priests, Catholic education and ministries
  • Aligning with Pope Benedict XVI’s call to New Evangelization and Pope Francis’ call to care for the poor and marginalized

Give now!
