Our Focus


The Diocese of Sacramento celebrates multi-cultural diversity, and recognizes the customs, languages and social mores of numerous ethnic groups while also fostering a unity among God’s people.


The beginnings of this Diocese are rooted in the vision, talents and gifts of various individuals who immigrated to Sacramento. Further, in its 120-year history, the Sacramento region has become recognized nationally for its culturally diverse population and responsive services.


We honor and respect the dignity of all people, embracing our differences and celebrating our shared beliefs. Numerous ministries, programs and services provide resources and assistance for various ethnic groups to ensure that faith-life, catechesis and worship may flourish.
