Encounter the Joy!

“Encounter the Joy of the Gospel and Set the World Ablaze” is the Diocese of Richmond's five-year pastoral plan for evangelization, anchored in Jesus’ joyful message.

Living Our Mission

The Diocese has embarked on an historic two-year $65 million capital and endowment campaign to raise financial resources to more fully support the mission and ministry of the local Church now and in the future.

Belonging to the Catholic Church

The Catholic Virginian has published a series of articles about the institutional dimension of the Catholic Church, considered in light of the November opening of the St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary, in Buckingham County, Virginia (near Farmville). The seminary is operated by the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX), an organization that is not in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church. No seminarians from the Diocese of Richmond will be enrolled there.
