Bishop's Message

Welcome to the Official Website of the Diocese of Bacolod.

In response to the call for New Evangelization, we as Church would like to reach as many people as possible for Christ and His Gospel.

With the possibilities that the web offers for interconnectivity, I am glad that the Diocese of Bacolod, through the Commission on Social Communications, is offering you access to our life as Church in Negros.

We are happy to have you.




PATRICIO A. BUZON, SDB, D.D.
