About Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge

On July 20, 1961, Blessed Pope John XXIII established the Diocese of Baton Rouge, comprising the twelve Louisiana civil parishes located in south Central Louisiana. The Holy Father named St. Joseph Church in the See city, built in 1853-1855 and renovated many times since, to be the new diocese's Cathedral. At present the Diocese of Baton Rouge is divided into 68 ecclesiastical parishes, two ethnic apostolates, and two additional University chaplaincies. More than 100 active secular and religious priests serve in the Diocese, and there are just over 212,000 Catholics in the region.
