The Patriarchal Diocese oversees about 150,000 faithful in four countries; Israel, Palestine, Jordan and Cyprus, covering a rich tapestry of cultures, languages, religions and traditions. In Jerusalem, the Catholic community is the largest Christian community, with some 4,500 people out of an estimated Christian population of about 11,000.

Serving all with special emphasis on the support and care of indigenous Holy Land Christians remains the enduring mission of the Mother Church, the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem.
