Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the See of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois and the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

Case Statement

The Centennial Campaign is a unique project that engages all the parishes in the diocese in an effort to revitalize parish communities through mission support, resource renewal, campus refurbishment, and sustainable financial planning. The Centennial Campaign recognizes and seeks to honor the generosity and hard work of the faithful of this diocese who established parishes and built our churches and schools by engaging the support and generosity of the faithful in planning and funding the future of each and every parish in the diocese. By 2028, a symbolic year that marks the centennial of the dedication of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, the mother church of the diocese, we will celebrate parishes that are equipped for mission, campuses that are centers of hospitality and welcome, and parishes with sustainable financial plans to ignite stewardship and discipleship for the next 100 years!


The Centennial Campaign is a five-year effort from 2023-2028 marking the 100thanniversary of the transfer of the diocesan See city in 2023 and the 100th Anniversary of the dedication of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in 2028. This campaign is a celebration of the legacy of stewardship throughout the diocese, with a special focus on parish life. Inspired by the Fourth Diocesan Synod, the renewal of stewardship as a way of life is reflected in each parish and diocesan project. Together, we will create communities oriented toward mission impact, ignited for evangelization, and transformed through vibrant stewardship long into the future!
