Peoria Catholic Diocese’s priest reassignments are being announced

Peoria Catholic Diocese Bishop Daniel Jenky says he knows half the diocese will be mad. It’s time for reassigning priests.

By now, priests throughout the diocese have been told whether they’re being moved to different parishes. Jenky says priests don’t always like it either. Jenky was happy assigned to the University of Notre Dame for more than 20 years, and then he was asked to be the bishop in Peoria.
