Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Thank you for your feedback in letting me know how much you appreciated learning what went into the celebration of confirmation. A few people also asked me what else I do at the diocese so I thought I would share that with you this week.

As our diocese is geographically compact, we don’t have regions but areas of responsibility. My areas include: Parish faith formation; youth and young adult ministry; the ministry on our college campuses; the formation of our teachers, catechists and volunteers; evangelization (including bringing focus missionaries into some of our parishes, St. Paul’s Street Evangelization, Damascus ministries for youth). I also oversee our Hispanic ministry, our office for worship, the implementation of RCIA, our Cathedral campus, our cemetery ministry, our security detail and am Bishop Vann’s liaison to the Orange Catholic Foundation. Additionally, I oversee our family life office which provides marriage preparation, natural family planning, mental health ministry, care for the divorced, separated, widowed, and our care for the whole person ministry. Thankfully, we have good people serving in these offices and I am blessed to work with them to continue to provide the best ministry possible to our parishes, schools and faithful.

Apart from my responsibilities at the diocese, I am also a police chaplain for the City of Anaheim and serve on the board of directors of a few national Catholic ministries, am on the executive committee of the CA Bishops’ Conference as well as a few committees for the US Bishops. As ministry is a blessing, I don’t feel like what I do is work and I am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with so many amazing people.

Please plan to attend an amazing movie, “Jesus Thirsts” in theaters June 4-5 in English and June 6 in Spanish!

In Christ,

Bishop Tim Freyer
