Bishop Francis Xavier DiLorenzo 1942 – 2017


As we mourn the passing of our beloved Bishop DiLorenzo, we reflect on the accomplishments of our Church during his time as the Shepherd of the Diocese. One of the monumental achievements was the historic Living Our Mission campaign which was conducted between 2014 and 2016. It’s design was to light the way to the road ahead and challenge us to look beyond our parish walls and become one true community of the Catholic faithful. Its inspiring success and impact can be articulated in no better way than by Bishop himself in these thoughts he expressed in the first Living Our Mission Annual Report.

“As I reflect on my time as Bishop of Richmond, I think of all we have accomplished together and how our Church has grown in amazing ways. More children and young people are becoming actively engaged in the Church; more people are discerning their call to priesthood, permanent diaconate, and religious life; more families are better able to afford to send their children to Catholic Schools; and more people are getting vital assistance for basic human necessities. Because of the success of the Living Our Mission campaign, I can say with certainty that this growth will continue and our Church will continue to thrive well into the future.”
