It is with pleasure that I welcome you to the web site of the Diocese of Springfield. Along with the larger church, the Diocese of Springfield and our congregations exist to assist people in their Christian spiritual formation and faith development so that they may inherit eternal life. We do this, as our mission statement affirms, by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and ministering to all people in His Name.
I pray the time you spend at this web site will be helpful to you. As the chief pastor of the Diocese of Springfield, I desire to serve you in every appropriate way. If I or any member of our faith community may be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to communicate with us.
Faithfully yours in Christ,
The Right Reverend Peter H. Beckwith
Tenth Bishop of Springfield
