Several Local Clergy On The Move

Posted by wlpo on May 31, 2012

The month of June will bring several changes with catholic churches in the area.  Forty-two priests in the Peoria Diocese are being reassigned.

Father Robert Rayson of St. Hyacinth’s and St. Patrick’s in La Salle and St. Thomas More in Dalzell will move to churches in Champaign and Seymour.  Taking his place in La Salle will be Father Antonio Dittmer who is coming from Minnesota.

In Oglesby, Father Michael Andrejek is going from Holy Family to St. Joseph’s in Pekin.  Replacing him at Holy Family is Father Gary Blake who is now at Holy Cross in Mendota.

Father Patrick Fixsen is staying with St. Patrick’s in Arlington and Holy Trinity in Cherry but is going from being an administrator to a pastor.  Monsignor Philip Halfacre of St. Michael the Archangel in Streator is expanding his role to include St. Pat’s in Seneca.
