Las Vegas Area

About the Area

This 27 year old Archdiocese is the 2nd fastest growing and 2nd youngest Catholic Diocese in the USA. With 850,000 Roman Catholics and now one month old as the Metropolitan See of Las Vegas, this “only” new Archdiocese in the US in 2023 will have Reno, NV and Salt Lake City, Utah under her wings.

     We are blest with Archbishop George Leo Thomas, KC*HS and Auxiliary Bishop Greg Gordon, KC*HS, and retired Bishops Richard Higgins, KC*HS and Joseph Pepe, KC*HS. Three of these wonderful Bishops have been Spiritual Directors on our last 3 Pilgrimages from the Las Vegas Council. We have grown annually at nearly 20% for the past 6 years. The Areal total is 124 as of 2023. 

In our annual meeting of 2021, based in Las Vegas, we declared the theme, “UPON THIS ROCK” as the basis for our programs.  Our 12 monthly Rosaries average 68% of the Area’s attendance. Our Committee structure of 8 members includes – Justice & Peace, Spiritual, Member Engagement/Enhancement, Legacy, and Invitation to Formation.  We meet four times a year. Mid Year Meetings are every March and consistently average over 100 in attendance. 

We are proud of the Council’s Team development of the FIAT (Faith in ActionToday) initiative. We also have two active Latin Patriarch Seminarians through the Order’s Adopt a Seminarian Program, that are involved in our Area’s development and updates. The communication vehicle…FTU (First Tuesday Update) reaches nearly 500 readers monthly and is now a joint effort of the Council. 

Our prime goal for all Dames and Knights is their Personal Sanctification, this drives our Time-Talent-Treasure to assist the Living Stones in all ways.
