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.”
Matthew 25:35-36
