Why is the For Christ Forever Capital Campaign necessary?

The need for our first-ever Diocesan campaign is prompted by two main dynamics:  growth and opportunities. With 1.3 million Catholics in Orange County, we are now the 10th largest diocese in the U.S. We also have opportunities now – such as the renovation and dedication of our future Christ Cathedral – to create powerful unifiers to connect, share and reinvigorate our faithful. Financial resources are essential to support these factors. Learn more here.

Who benefits from For Christ Forever?

Each and every Catholic in Orange County benefits from the campaign. Funds raised will go directly to support our campaign’s five key priorities noted above. Learn more here.

Why should I give to For Christ Forever?

Our campaign is an historic opportunity for all us as Catholics. It is a time to prayerfully reflect on all the blessings God has bestowed upon us. And it is a chance for each of us to enable and ensure we are able to address local parish needs, catholic education, priest retirements and the role of the future Christ Cathedral now and for decades to come.
