Welcome to the website of the Roman Catholic
Diocese of Palm Beach!

During this month of July, as we celebrate the freedom given to us in our great nation, it is well to reflect that the month of July is dedicated to the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. It is through the Precious Blood of the Lord that we are given true freedom — the freedom from the enslavement to sin.

Whether you are searching for information about the diocese, parishes, and schools or about the Roman Catholic Church in general, I hope that our diocesan website will be of help to you.
The Diocese of Palm Beach is comprised of five counties in Southeastern Florida: Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and Okeechobee. From Sebastian to Boca Raton and from Palm Beach to Pahokee, the 241,100 Catholics of the Diocese of Palm Beach span the economic and cultural spectrum of the area and contribute to a vibrant faith experience in our 50 parishes, 3 missions, and 1 Hispanic Pastoral Center.  
Whether you are a full-time resident, a part-time winter resident, or a tourist visiting our area, I pray that you will enjoy your time in the Diocese of Palm Beach, and as you tour our website.
May Mary, Our Lady Queen of the Apostles, patroness of the diocese, guide us in the footsteps of her Son, Jesus Christ.  
Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito
Bishop of Palm Beach
