A diocese is entrusted to a diocesan bishop for his pastoral care. He is not alone, however, in fulfilling the responsibilities entrusted to him. One of the vehicles available to assist his administration of the diocese is his curia. The diocesan curia consists of those individuals as well as those structures which exist to assist the diocesan bishop in his governance responsibilities. The curia has a threefold function: guiding pastoral action, conducting general administration, and exercising judicial power.
