The Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau By Father Jeff Fasching
Introduction • Ordained a Catholic Priest in his early 30s, Father Jeff Fasching brings to his calling a broad range of experience in the world. He serves as chaplain and minister of sacraments for five local hospitals. Currently responsible for the spiritual leadership of the Latin Mass community in the Springfield-Cape Girardeau diocese, Father Jeff Fasching is the only priest in the diocese who celebrates the Mass in both Latin and English on a regular basis.
About the Roman Catholic Diocese of Louisiana • What is now the state of Missouri was part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Louisiana until the 1826 establishment of the See of St. Louis. The state grew more populous following the discovery of rich lead deposits, and the organization of the Catholic Church grew and changed with its people. The Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau was created in 1956 as part of these changes. Its patron saints are St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, whose feast day is November 18, and St. Pius X, the church’s 259th Pope, whose feast day is August 21.
About Cape Girardeau • In a departure from the practice of a diocese having a single cathedral as the bishop’s seat, it has two cathedrals, St. Agnes in Springfield and St. Mary of the Annunciation in Cape Girardeau. This is said to be a reflection of the church’s ultimate objective of centering a separate diocese on Cape Girardeau.
Conclusion • The Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau includes the 39 counties in Missouri’s southern region, about a third of the state. About 66,000 Catholics live within the diocese, in 66 parishes. The oldest parish, established in 1789, is the Immaculate Conception Parish in New Madrid, and the newest, founded in 2004, is the St. Francis of Assisi Parish in Nixa. The Diocese is active in numerous areas, helping its parishioners lead quality lives while providing them with spiritual counsel and guidance.
