The Roman Catholic Diocese of Sacramento is an ecclesiastical territory or particular church of the Roman Catholic Church in the northern California region of the United States. It comprises the counties of Siskiyou, Modoc, Trinity, Shasta, Lassen, Tehama, Plumas, Glenn, Butte, Sierra, Colusa, Sutter, Yuba, Nevada, Yolo, Placer, Solano, Sacramento, El Dorado, and Amador, and is headquartered in Sacramento, California. Also known as the See of Sacramento, it is led by a bishop who pastors the mother church of the diocese, the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament. Originally a major part of the defunct Grass Valley Diocese (which included several counties in northern California and Nevada), Pope Leo XIII established the present-day diocese on May 28, 1886.
Today, the See of Sacramento remains a ceremonial suffragan of the ecclesiastical province of the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Its fellow suffragans include the Dioceses of Honolulu, Las Vegas, Oakland, Reno, Salt Lake City, San Jose, Santa Rosa and Stockton.
Weekly mass count was about 136,500 in 2009. There were an estimated 800,000 Catholics in the area that did not attend mass regularly.
