                        The 2019 Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal…Blessed to receive, chosen to give 


A most heartfelt thanks to all those who have already responded with a gift to The 2019 Catholic Service and 

Ministry Appeal. If you have not done so as yet, there’s still plenty of time. One-time donations or pledges – in 

any amount – are needed and can be made through your parish or at www.diobelle.org (click on “Giving 

to the Diocese”). Your generosity supports 15 agencies and programs that daily serve thousands of people. 

Please consider making your gift today or at any time you are able in the coming months. We also ask 

for your prayers for the success of this year’s appeal and all those we serve. Thank you and may God bless you 

always.      Judy Phillips – Diocese of Belleville 



On Good Friday, the traditional “Collection for the Holy Land” is an opportunity for all Catholics around the world to be one with our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land.  From those territories, we continue to hear the outcry of thousands of persons who are deprived of everything, at times even of their own human dignity.  Especially on Good Friday, their heartbreaking cries invite us to embrace them with Christian charity.  On the day of Jesus’ own death, we make a spiritual pilgrimage to the Holy Land, walking in the steps of the suffering and crucified Christ.  Please be generous during the Good Friday “Collection for the Holy Land.” 


Holy Tuesday trip: All Confirmandi candidates are required to attend the Chrism Mass in Belleville. We are meeting at 9 am, April 16, in front of St.Charles parish hall. We will attempt to car pool if possible. If you are going with another school, please meet us in front of the Cathedral in Belleville so we can sit together. We will randomly pick 2 from each parish to get the holy oils. They in turn will present them to their home parish on Holy Thursday.    Monica
