ABOUT THE DIOCESE:
We started in 1833; with Fr. John Mary Cyr visiting Peoria, noting “Peoria is already and will be more so, one of the most important points on the Illinois River for Catholicity, if nothing will be neglected on our part. It is therefore high time to take the matter into consideration; it is now time to plant.”
We have since grown to what we are today, a diocese of over 130,000 Catholics spread throughout 26 counties, 156 parishes and over 40 schools. We serve the mission of Jesus and the Church through the many offices and ministries that strive to provide a path to missionary discipleship in the model of Christ Himself. The mission of our diocese is the foundation for how we run it. We believe that your job should support your vocation, your gifts and your charisms.
Our bishop, the Most Reverend Louis Tylka, envisions the future of our Diocese one of further planting: seeds of faith in those who’ve left the Church; seeds of hope for the strong Catholics who remain; and seeds of charity for those in our midst who are most in need. This role will be an integral part of growing in the diocese.
