Ss. Simon & Jude serves as a touchstone to the universal Church for a growing faith community of almost 800,000 Catholics, in 116 parishes and missions spread throughout four counties in Arizona.
As the parish community of the Most Reverend Bishop, the Cathedral of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix houses the kathedra, or chair, from where the Bishop carries out his service to the Church as Teacher and Shepherd. Locally, the Cathedral Parish and School is a spiritual haven for almost 2000 households and nearly 500 Catholic School students.
