Diocese of Corpus Christi celebrates 100 years

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX

The conference and Mass are set for Monday.

Diocese of Corpus Christi spokesman Marty Wind tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times (http://bit.ly/H5yF4f ) that the celebration "marks 100 years of faith, tradition and service to the community."

Pope Pius X established the Diocese of Corpus Christi on March 23, 1912.

Wind says the diocese is currently made up of more than 110 churches. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, Galveston-Houston Archbishop, oversees more than 1.3 million Catholics in the area.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, will deliver the conference keynote address, "The Church in the Third Millennium."
