About Us

Artzi OnaOur laity organization is about keeping the Catholic in Basque identity.

This is not to create a separate Basque Catholic entity or to pull Basques from their current parishes; this is only to supplement efforts to strengthen the faith of Basque Catholics with periodic Basque community and religious services that are open to all.

We have taken the name of ARTZAI ONA, which in Basque means “good shepherd,” to meld with the metaphor of Christ Jesus as the good shepherd.

Helping with this effort as he is able, is Fr. Antton Egiguren who is currently assigned to a parish in the Diocese of Fresno in California.

Ours is a voluntary organization. If you’d like to find out more about how to be involved, email us at info@basquecatholic.org
