The Roman Catholic Diocese of Laredo (Latin: Dioecesis Laredanus) is a Roman Catholic diocese located in Laredo, Texas. It was founded on July 3, 2000. The San Agustin Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Diocese of Laredo. James Anthony Tamayo is the current bishop of the Diocese. It covers an area of 10,905 sq. mi. and has 222,250 members. It has 51 Priests, 29 Deacons, 32 Parishes, and 23 Missions.
The U.S. Provincial for the Oblates of Mary Immaculate has decided that the Order, due to a lack of personnel, will be leaving Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Laredo, effective July 8, 2018. On that date, the parish will come under the pastoral care of the Diocese of Laredo. The Oblates will continue to serve Our Lady of Refuge in Eagle Pass and Sacred Heart Church in Eagle Pass.
Serving Others in God's Love
We are called to follow Christ as missionary disciples by serving others and living our faith in all that we do. Let us take a few moments each day from June 22 - June 29 to pray, reflect, and take action on religious liberty, both here in this country and abroad.
