OSF HealthCare unveiled its new Women’s Health and Advanced Fertility Office on the North Side of Peoria Tues.

Bishop Daniel Jenky of the Catholic Diocese of Peoria led the ceremony with a blessing, followed by a sprinkling of holy water in each of the offices and examining rooms.

Bishop Jenky praised the new facility, calling it an extension of Saint Francis’ mission in Peoria.

“This allows women more choices, and it allows the hospital to enact its core mission to live in harmony with our Catholic faith,” Jenky said.

Hundreds of parishioners flocked to the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Peoria Saturday for the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe. 

The celebration with Mexican origins honors Jesus’ mother Mary. The day-long festivities at St. Mary's Cathedral gave attendees a taste of home.  

The cavernous cathedral was flooded with color -- women wore ribbons threaded in their braids, and a heap of fresh flowers lay below a statue of Mary.
