Moving Toward Parish Community Tithing

For the Diocesan Mission and Ministries

Beginning July 2021, the Annual Catholic Services Appeal will be replaced by the Parish Community Tithe Gift toward the Diocesan mission and ministries. Moving forward, parishes will be asked to contribute 10% of parish general support, excluding revenue from Cemeteries, Schools, or Bishop Approved Capital Campaigns. These gifts will ensure the ministries of the Diocese, in support of the universal church, will continue to share in the goodness and growth of discipleship and stewardship throughout the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois. On this page, you will find a variety of resources, trainings, and updates regarding the transition.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Katie Price, Director of the Parish Vitality and Mission Advancement Office at 217-321-1121 or
