It is customary for the Bishop-Elect to celebrate Vespers with the people and clergy of his new diocese on the eve of his ordination. The episcopal regalia (miter, crosier, ring) are usually blessed at this time.
Vespers is scheduled for Wednesday, June 21, at 7 pm. The liturgy will take place at St. John Vianney Church in Bettendorf. Due to the large interest, this will be a ticketed event; details are still pending.
