Posted by wlpo on May 29, 2016

How does a Catholic church acknowledge their retiring pastor?  You can find out by attending an open house and reception from Noon – 3 Sunday at Utica Knights of Columbus.

Monsignor James J. Swaner celebrated the 55th year of his ordination as a priest Saturday.  Bishop Jenky, CSE of the Peoria Diocese will officially grant Swaner senior status at Noon June 8th.  A mass was held earlier Sunday morning.
