Peoria Diocese: May 2006 Archives

Homily at Catholic Men's Rally


Last weekend, my diocese had our annual men's rally and Mass that occurs near the feast of St. Joe. The Catholic Post has Bishop Jenky's homily online. Do check it out.


If Jesus is our best friend and our greatest love, we really have nothing to fear and we can be good men, faithful husbands, devoted dads, brothers and sons, zealous priests and deacons, unashamedly Roman Catholic believers. And just as every word of the Scriptures holds together and fits together, opens windows into eternity, and plants God’s truth in the very depths of our souls, so should our fraternity in Christ unify all our efforts and strengthen our fidelity.

One of my favorite days of the year!

The Catholic Post, the Peoria diocesan newspaper, has released the list of clergy moves which will take effect this month.

Last year, for the first time, I realized why I get excited about this every year: it's so very Apostolic. I think of Paul sending Timothy to the Corinthians, to the Phillipians, and to the Thessalonians to minister to them. It's another one of the ways that we're connected to the early Church.

Anyway, here's the list of this year's assignments.

What's got me particularly happy is to see that my own parish is getting a new associate pastor, a young priest who I know back from the old days. In fact last year, I blogged about a conversation I had with him some years back.
