Retired Bishop Keith Ackerman returns to central Illinois

From Peoria-

Bishop Vicar of Quincy Keith Ackerman once again lit up smiles of parishioners at Christ Church Limestone where he performed service Sunday morning.

Ackerman, the retired eighth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Quincy for the Anglican Church in North America, came back to the Hanna City church after current Bishop Juan Alberto Morales of Quincy asked him to return to the area for a diocene convention.

Ackerman spoke about the importance of giving thanks to God, family and friends.
"What a joy it is to come home," Ackerman said to the congregation of close to 50 devotees. "And now I've come to say thank you to all of you."

From 1994, Ackerman served as Bishop of Quincy and as Chaplain to the Peoria Chiefs until he retired in 2009. Since then, he has been living in Keller, Texas practicing his Spanish and working two days a week as a therapist in inner-city Dallas. He is also working on a new prayer book and helps the Bishop of Fort Worth.
