Why Not Here


His traditional robes set him aside from the others. But Daniel Jenky's blue baseball cap was a reminder he was just one in the crowd.

As hundreds of men marched Saturday morning from Liberty Square on the riverfront to St. Mary's Cathedral, the bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Peoria mingled with those toward the back of the pack rather than lead the way.

"If I invite the men of the diocese to do this, I should walk with them," Jenky said. "If I didn't, that's like the commander saying, 'Go over that hill. I'll just stay back here.' "

The sixth annual Call to Catholic Men of Faith March drew men and boys of all ages from the diocese's 26 counties to Downtown Peoria in celebration of unity and solidarity.

Read all of Catholic men moved by faith.
