CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: California (7434 words)
California, the largest and most important of the Pacific Coast States, is the second State of the United States in point of area, and the twenty-first in point of population.
The 800 miles of California's length from north to south are equal to the combined length of ten States on the Atlantic seaboard; the northern line of California is on the same latitude as Boston, and the southern line is that of Savannah, Georgia.
In California the Catholic Church, notwithstanding that she receives no financial aid from the State, and that the support of her schools and colleges must be derived entirely from contributions of the faithful, has done great things in the cause of Christian education.
