Diocese of Orlando

Teaching & Living the Light of Christ. Guided by our shepherd Bishop John Noonan. The Diocese of Orlando headquarters is located at the chancery building in downtown Orlando: 50 East Robinson Street Orlando, FL 32801

Mission: We are called to teach and live the Light of Christ toward Goodness, Righteousness and Truth. We respond to this call by enkindling a deeper faith in the hearts and minds of our brothers and sisters; forming leaders in Christ; and harmonizing ministries to the mission of the Catholic Church.

In times of separation, in moments of despair, may we always remember that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, loves us above all. We are never truly alone! ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

โ€Thanksgiving may be different this year; not having our families around us, but there is something that will never change and that is the meaning of Thanksgiving. Giving thanks is recognizing Godโ€™s grace in our lives. So letโ€™s give thanks to God for the many gifts, family, friends, faith, freedom, forgiveness, peace, hope, love, and more.โ€ - Bishop John Noonan

Despite our worries and fears, may our faith be wholeheartedly intact - praising and glorifying the Lord forever and ever, amen! โœ๏ธ

Today we honor 117 Vietnamese Catholic martyrs of the 19th century. They give testament to the sufferings inflicted on the Vietnamese Church, which are among the most terrible in the long history of Christian martyrdom.

Our Story

The Diocese of Orlando was established on June 18, 1968 and is home to a thriving and growing community of Catholic faithful. Our community includes 79 parishes, 12 mission churches, two basilicas, 42 schools and hundreds of ministries.

We represent many cultural and ethnic groups, believers of all ages, income levels and education, all united in the universal Catholic Church.

In addition to English, Mass is celebrated in the Diocese of Orlando in many languages. We all call Central Florida home but the Catholic Church is our spiritual home where we share Godโ€™s love, experience the sacraments, serve the needy and encourage the distressed.

Most of all, we come together for Mass to meet our Savior at the table of the Lord, grow in our relationship with Christ, lead others to holiness and share our blessings.
