Bishop Armando Ochoa Announces Options United

December 15, 2017

A Pastoral Message from The Most Reverend Armando X. Ochoa, D.D. Introducing Options United

As Missionary Disciples of Hope we are called to be mindful of the lives of all, from the first moment of conception until natural death. This mission is guided by Catholic Social Teaching that finds its roots and nourishment in the Word of God and the Holy Eucharist. This mission carries with it no prejudice or judgment towards the people it is commissioned to serve. It is holistic, humble and compassionate in its approach. It recognizes Christ among us at every stage of life and in every circumstance.
