Mission Statement of the Diocese of Springfield

Loved and chosen by God
we are the Catholic Diocese of Springfield in Illinois.

Through Baptism,
we share responsibility
for continuing the mission of Jesus.

We are called
to be a community
whose members enable and support
the gifts given to each by the Spirit.

We are sent
to make Christ visible in our world
through worship,
proclamation of the Word
and service to all God’s people.
