Work Started on New Worship Space at Christ Cathedral in Garden Grove


Construction has begun on the St. Callistus Chapel and Crypts, a new worship space underneath Christ Cathedral that will serve generations of parishioners throughout Orange County for years to come. The project, located at 13280 Chapman Ave in Garden Grove, is being built by Driver SPG, a part of C.W. Driver Companies.

The modern Byzantine architectural style design by Johnson Fain will differ from the main sanctuaryís contemporary style. The intimate chapel will feature a more traditional European palette of gold and jewel tones, and include sacred art from Granda of Madrid, Spain. Different mediums are planned for the space: statues, mosaics, paintings and tapestry.

The $14.5 mil St. Callistus chapel is designed to accommodate 220 people and will have a marble altar for Masses with enough room for a choir, musicians, and 10 to 15 concelebrants. On either side of the chapel will be devotional shrines: one celebrating the legacy and history of the Diocese of Orange, and the second detailing the story of St. Callistus, the pope who lived in the 3rd Century A.D.

The chapelís name honors the St. Callistus parish and school in Garden Grove that closed in 2013 as part of the sale to complete the purchase of the property formerly known as Crystal Cathedral. The people of that parish became the initial congregants of Christ Cathedral. Since then, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange has extensively refurbished its 34-acre campus.

The St. Callistus Chapel and Crypts project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2024.
