Traveling Monstrance in the Quad City Area

At Corpus Christi in 2022, Bishop Lou Tylka announced that a special monstrance would travel across the 26 counties of our Diocese in support of the National Eucharistic Revival. Holy Hours and evenings of prayer would support the efforts of the Revival through 2024. The monstrance was made in Spain and tailored to be representative of the Diocese of Peoria. Four gemstones were replaced with enamel symbols of the diocesan crest, the Sacred Heart, the pierced heart of Mary and the lamb of sacrifice, all of which can be found in St. Mary's Cathedral in Peoria.
