The mission of the Catholic Diocese of Jackson is to proclaim Jesus as Savior by living the Gospel, so that all people may experience the crucified and risen Lord.
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty
and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me,
in prison and you visited me.”
This mission statement, launched by Bishop Joseph Kopacz and his envisioning team in January, 2017, is just part of a new set of pastoral priorities for the Diocese of Jackson. Learn more about the priorities and how you can be a part of the new mission and vision here.
