Fall 2014 - Welcome. Development of a larger and newly designed website is underway.  Meanwhile, this interim website will keep you up-to-date on news from parishes and organizations across the diocese as well as from Bishop Provenzano and diocesan ministries.

Facebook and Twitter social networks also get timely status updates and postings about the diocese.

As always, we welcome your parish news and website suggestions by email.


Because most photo files are large and can disrupt email delivery, do not email photos.  Please write for special instructions before submitting photos.
