Experience the Living Waters

Province V covers Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, eastern Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin: 14 dioceses, 844 congregations, 220,000 lay persons and clergy.

Each diocese is bordered by at least one body of living water; the great American rivers, the Great Lakes, and myriad smaller bodies. The image of Living Water, baptismal waters, continues to shape our relationships and ministry.
