Since January of 2012, Bishop Jenky has asked every Catholic in the Diocese of Peoria to join him in reciting the Prayer to St Michael the Archangel, in response to the attack on our religious freedom resulting from some regulations contained in the Affordable Healthcare Act. While some of the the HHS (US Dept of Health & Human Services) mandates have been lifted through a Presidential Executive Act, our bishop has asked us to continue praying for religious freedom in our diocese due to ongoing threats to our basic rights.
The devotion to the child Jesus, really goes back to the beginning of the Church, with the visit of the Three Magi from the East. It has taken on various forms, in different countries, ever since.

And so, since Lent of 2014 we've turned back to this devotion for our parish.
