Welcome to the Catholic Diocese of Gary


As members of the Body of Christ, the people of the Roman Catholic community of the  Diocese of Gary, diverse but united  through Baptism and empowered by the Holy Spirit, nourished by Word and Sacrament, are called to continue the mission of Jesus by being a sign and instrument of God’s kingdom of truth, peace, justice, and love.

Welcome to the website of the Diocese of Gary! Our parishes, programs, and institutions are here to serve you. Should you wish news or information of recent events, please refer to the website of the Northwest Indiana Catholic.

If you live in or near Northwest Indiana, I invite you to become actively engaged in one of our parishes. If you are not Catholic or if you have been away from the Church for some time, please consider joining us for worship at Holy Mass. We would love for you to experience the joy of growing in a deeper relationship with the Lord Jesus and, through Jesus, with our Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit. You will find in Christ Jesus the fulfillment of the deepest longings of your heart and the way to a peace that the world cannot give.

God love and be with you always!

Sincerely yours in the Lord Jesus,
Dale J. Melczek
Most Reverend Dale J. Melczek
Bishop of Gary
