Ongoing Meal Train for our Galesburg Priests
We would like to offer one healthy and homemade meal per week to
Father Miller, Father John Baptist, and Father Riordan to support them in their busy schedules and say thank you for all they do for us.
To keep the process efficient, we will organize the meals around one day per week and have one central drop off location. We are hoping it also fosters some shared dinners for them!
If you are interested in participating or would like more information, please contact Jenn Moffitt at 309-621-3995 or [email protected]

Rachel’s Vineyard weekends for healing after abortion are offered throughout the year in locations across the United States and Canada, with additional sites around the world. Rachel’s Vineyard is a ministry of Priests for Life. The Catholic Diocese of Peoria sponsors two retreats each year which are open to men and women of all faith backgrounds.
The program is an opportunity to examine your abortion experience, identify the ways that the loss has impacted you in the past and present, and helps to acknowledge any unresolved feelings that many individuals struggle with after abortion. Because of the emotional numbness and secrecy that often surrounds an abortion experience, conflicting emotions both during and after the event may remain unresolved. These buried feelings can surface later and may be symptoms of post abortion trauma.
