About Diocese of Santa Rosa
The Diocese of Santa Rosa was established February 21, 1962, from portions of the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the Diocese of Sacramento. The Diocese of Santa Rosa serves 41 Parishes, 22 Missions, and 10 schools, sprawling over 6 counties, 53 cities, and 11,711 square miles. We serve a diverse range of churches and schools, from the Greater Bay Area to the California/Oregon state line.
Our mission flows from our identity as a Eucharistic people, a people gathered to give thanks for the abundant blessings that we share. As the people of God in the Diocese of Santa Rosa, our task is to share in the ministry of Christ in the communities of Sonoma, Napa, Lake, Mendocino and Humboldt and Del Norte counties. The success of this work depends on all of us.
Catholic schools serve in partnership with parents who desire to form and educate their children for a Christ-centered life through rigorous instruction focused on building intellectual, emotional, moral, physical, social and spiritual competencies.
