Prioress Susan Hutchens Welcomes Bishop Tylka

Below is a congratulatory statement, printed in the Catholic Post on Sunday, July 19th:

We, the Sisters of St. Benedict, Rock Island, extend a heartfelt Benedictine welcome to Bishop Louis Tylka.  We are delighted to walk and work together as you lead the Diocese of Peoria. 

As a community that embraces the value of prayer, community and hospitality, we receive you as a presence of Christ in our midst.  In joy, we share the gift of promoting peace and recognizing that equal justice for all is a God-given right of all humanity.  

Honoring Pope Francis' cry of Care for our Earth, we appreciate the beauty of all creation, and invite you to visit and experience the quiet and peacefulness of our home, retreat center and monastery grounds.  Congratulations!

Sister Susan Hutchens, OSB
Prioress, St. Mary Monastery, Rock Island
