The Retreat House

On August 1, Bishop Jenky and Bishop Tylka solemnly dedicated the Sacre Couer Retreat Center outside of Henry, Illinois about 40 miles north of Peoria.  This new 70-bed retreat center includes conference rooms and two beautiful chapels.  The grounds include an outdoor Way of the Cross, and beautiful patio spaces with views of the Illinois River.  Fulton Sheen will be a featured part of the new center.  The library is dedicated in his honor and a prayer garden, the “JMJ Courtyard,” will feature a statue of Sheen.  Enjoy this brand new Facility and be some of the first people to retreat here!  For more information about the new Sacre Coeur Retreat center go here: https://www.scrcmagnolia.org/
