About the Parish

pekin_doorWelcome to the website for the Parish of Tazewell County. Located in the greater Peoria region of central Illinois, we are on the northwestern border of the Episcopal Diocese of Springfield.

Our Parish is an Anglican family that gathers in two locations — Saint Paul’s Church in Pekin, and All Saints’ Church in Morton. We are accessible and committed to the spiritual formation and education of our members according to the Catholic faith as embodied in the Book of Common Prayer.

all_saints_tabernacleWe invite you to join us at Mass, which we celebrate according to Rite I liturgy and ad crucem (eastward) orientation. The center of the worship in our Parish is the Sacrament of the Eucharist that overflows into our life of Prayer and ministry to the wider community — seeking to represent Our Lord Jesus Christ in our homes, in our workplaces, and in our neighborhood. Homilies offered for the Parish can be read here.
