Relic of Blessed John Paul II Coming to Peoria
Bishop Jenky invites everyone to join him for a historic Mass and celebration honoring the life of Blessed John Paul II on Monday, November 18, at 7:30 PM. During this Mass, the Bishop will welcome the official relic which is a vial of blood encased in a gold gospel book. The relic will be brought by Mother Adela Galindo, Foundress of the Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary, and other sisters of this community, which has two sisters serving here at PND. After Mass there will be the opportunity for private veneration of this relic.
The Diocese of Peoria is only one of three dioceses nationwide to host this holy event. Holy cards with John Paul II image will be given out to be touched to the relic.
