Welcome to the Jackson Diocese.... A Word from Bishop Latino
Welcome to the web site for the Diocese of Jackson! We are home to over 48,000 Catholics in 105 parishes and missions. Our diocese covers 65 counties and almost 38,000 square miles making it the largest geographical diocese east of the Mississippi River. Since the time of the early Spanish explorers, there has been a Catholic presence in what is now the State of Mississippi. The early missionaries and those who have followed have found ways to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others.
The internet provides a new way to spread this Good News to Catholics and the world at large. In this web site, you will find information about this diocese: its structure, its parishes, schools, and other ministries, and who to contact if you have any questions. It is my hope that you will find this site informative and helpful.
God bless you!
