About the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix is committed to helping the faithful encounter the living Christ through conversion, communion and solidarity. Led by the Most Rev. Thomas J. Olmsted, more than 1.1 million Catholics make this diverse, vibrant and faith-filled diocese their home.
The faithful worship, receive the sacraments and participate in the many activities and social events at one of the 93 parishes in the Diocese. More than 14,000 students attend one of our 28 Catholic elementary schools, six high schools and 28 preschools.
And thanks to your generous support of the Charity and Development Appeal, more than 70 community and charitable organizations are able to provide hands-on help for seniors, the homeless, those who have lost jobs, women who have been abused, and families in crisis.
