The Diocesan Curia

The diocesan curia is composed of those institutes and persons who assist the Bishop in governing the entire diocese, especially in directing pastoral action, in providing for the administration of the diocese, and in exercising judicial power (469, Code of Canon Law).

The curia is composed of the Bishop’s Office, the Vicar General’s Office, the Chancery, the Tribunal, the Vicariate for Administration and three Pastoral Vicariates: the Vicariate for Education, the Vicariate for Evangelisation and the Vicariate for Pastoral Formation.

For the departments within each vicariate, see the Diocesan Structure.
