The Diocese of Baton Rouge is divided into 68 ecclesiastical parishes, two ethnic apostolates, and two additional University chaplaincies. More than 100 active secular and religious priests serve in the Diocese. The Diocese itself comprises an area of 5,513 square miles. The total population of the Diocese is listed as 924,844 persons (according to the 2006 government census numbers), and Catholics make up only about 23 per cent of the total population — diocesan census figures put their number at just over 212,000. But Catholics have traditionally exercised a wider influence in society and on public policy over the years. Just under half of all Catholic children in the Diocese attend Catholic schools; others are expected to take part in parochial catechetical programs.
The personnel of the administrative departments of the Diocese of Baton Rouge collaborate with the bishop in his work of evangelizing, catechizing, leading worship and giving pastoral care to the people of the larger community, and support the parishes, schools and other organizations of the diocese in accomplishing their ministry.
