Bishop Michael McGovern will celebrate a special "Mass for Young Adults" on Sunday, Aug. 9 at 5 PM at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Belleville.  All young adults, from high school graduates through age 35, are invited to attend, and meet the Bishop.  A light reception with cold drinks will be held after the Mass.  This is a good opportunity for Catholic young adults to pray together with Bishop McGovern and to meet other young adults from the diocese. 

                                                           Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time  --  August 2, 2020

Nothing Can Separate Us!  The first reading speaks of comfort foods.  The second declares nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.  The gospel shows that Jesus' need for quiet prayer can be interrupted by his pity on others' needs.  He puts the disciples to work in providing needed and satisfying food.  In this pandemic, some may still be separated from the Sunday assembly, from Eucharist and Communion, but never from Christ Jesus. 

The Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal Needs You!   A most heartfelt thanks to all those who have responded with a gift to The 2020 Catholic Service and Ministry Appeal;  we are truly grateful.  If you have not already done so, there's still plenty of time...one-time donations or pledges - in any amount- are needed.  Donations can be made through your parish or online at www.diobelle.org.  Please consider making your gift today or at any time in the coming months.  Thank you and may God bless you for your generosity.
