The Database of Publicly Accused Priests does not state or imply that individuals facing allegations are guilty of a crime or liable for civil claims. The reports contained in the database are merely allegations.The U.S. legal system presumes that a person accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty.Similarly, individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise.Admissions of guilt or liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements.For more information, see our posting policy.

Previous postBishop of El Paso (1996-2012)
Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles/Titular Bishop of Sitifis (1987-1996)

Armando Xavier Ochoa, D.D.[1] (born April 9, 1943)[2] is the Bishop of Fresno and was formerly the[3][4]Bishop of El Paso. Ochoa is an advocate of diocesan foster care programs and responsible water use.[5]

Early life[edit]

Armando Ochoa, who is of Mexican American descent, grew up in Oxnard, California[6][7] and was educated at institutions such as Ventura College and St. John's Seminary.[8] He was ordained a priest on May 23, 1970. Ochoa served at three parishes in Los Angeles before becoming an administrator of Sacred Heart Parish in Lincoln Heights, CA in 1984.[9]

Episcopal appointments[edit]

Ochoa was named titular bishop of Sitifis[10][11] as an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles by Pope John Paul II in December 1986.[12] He was consecrated on February 23, 1987 by Cardinal Roger Mahony. While as an auxiliary bishop, Ochoa was the principal co-consecrator of Bishops Joseph Martin Sartoris, Thomas John Curry and Gabino Zavala.

On April 1, 1996, Ochoa was appointed bishop of the Diocese of El Paso and installed on June 26 of the same year. During the eleven-year span between 1999 and 2009, there were only two ordinations to the priesthood in the Diocese of El Paso.[citation needed]

On December 1, 2011 the Pope appointed Ochoa as the bishop of the Diocese of Fresno, California, succeeding the late Bishop John Steinbock, who had died of lung cancer in December 2010 (the Fresno Diocese has an area of 91,268; a total population of 2,778,000; a Catholic population of 1,084,000; 166 priests; 46 permanent deacons; and 152 religious).


Ochoa considers the ordination of woman priests to be a moot point due to papal opposition; he believes that homosexuals should remain celibate in accordance with Church doctrine requiring all unmarried people to remain celibate; he believes that the priest shortage will be solved through faith rather than through allowing a married priesthood; and fears that teaching children about condoms in a school setting would send a "mixed message" regarding pre-marital sex.[13]
