Whether you be a parishioner, a fellow believer, or someone in search for something more, thank you for taking the time to consider our website.

You will find here just a preview of the close-knit community found in our four parishes. We have proudly lived the Catholic Faith in Sangamon and Morgan Counties for more than a century, and pray that it please God to give us another hundred years in his service.

If you’re looking for a community of Catholic Christian disciples in which to grow in the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ through prayer, worship, and service, we welcome you.

Mission Statement

“We, the members of the Quad Parishes, consisting of St. Mary’s of New Berlin, Sacred Heart of Franklin, St. Sebastian of Waverly, and Visitation BVM of Alexander, Diocese of Springfield in Illinois, are committed to be disciples of Jesus through baptism in the Roman Catholic tradition. We will strive to make Christ more visible in our lives, our communities, and the world, through worship, serving others, and proclaiming God’s Word. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to share the love of God, with our time, talent, and treasures, in order to make our parishes a place for all who love God to call home.”

The Quad Parishes are in the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois
