While respecting the architectural legacy of its original founders, extensive renovations are needed to the entire 34-acre campus to prepare Christ Cathedral to welcome a Diocese of 1.3 million members and growing, as well as to prepare the Cathedral itself for the sacraments. The maintenance of the Cathedral is ongoing and the ministries that continue to serve our community in Orange County is expanding. That’s why your support matters!
Your gift will shine forever, as the Christ Cathedral pursues its mission of embodying the Word of God for all those in our community and around the world. If you are considering the most appropriate use of your gift, we invite you to explore ideas from some of our current donors.
