The University of Illinois Springfield is proud that our colonnade has been chosen as the center piece of the 2010 St. Joseph's Home Official City Ornament.
The UIS colonnade was completed in the summer of 2005. It quickly has become the major landmark of the university.
Each ornament is die-cut, hand-assembled, 24-karat gold-plated, and made in the U.S.A. No more than 5,000 of these ornaments will be produced. Each comes with a signed and numbered certificate.
Proceeds from the annual ornament project support the mission and the ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Immaculate Conception.
