RC Diocese of Grand Falls
The Diocese of Grand Falls, covering 19,200 square miles, comprises nearly half of the geographical territory of the island of Newfoundland, which covers 43,000 square miles. The province of Newfoundland, made up of the island and the larger mainland territory of Labrador, is Canada’s tenth province.
Our diocese consists of thirty parishes. Twenty-four parishes are along the extensive and rugged sea coastline, while six are inland parishes. Our diocese was originally known as the Diocese of Harbour Grace, then the Diocese of Harbour Grace-Grand Falls, and in 1964 it became the Diocese of Grand Falls.
The Diocese of Grand Falls serves the People of God in central and eastern Newfoundland with joy and enthusiasm. As you browse through our website, it is our hope that you find this energy and joy reflected therein.
