CANDIDATES FOR THE PRIESTHOOD TO BE ORDAINED DEACONS
Saturday, June 8 at 10:30 a.m.
Cathedral of St. Peter, Belleville
All are invited to attend!
This year’s annual Pentecost Festival is extra special since we are celebrating the Deacon Ordination of our two parishioners Nick Fleming and Joel Seipp. They both will serve as deacons at the 10:30 Mass. 

After Mass we will all gather on the East Lawn for our parish Pentecost Festival to honor these two newly ordained deacons! 
THE YOUNG ADULT INITIATIVE IS GEARING UP!
After a year of listening and learning, our Young Adult Initiative (YAI) Core Team is hitting the ground running through the generous $10,000/year grant we received from St. Meinrad.

Look for our banner and booth at the Pentecost Festival and learn more about the YAI. Young adult attendees (single, married, parents, etc.) can stop by for random prizes by connecting with us on Flocknote and providing feedback.
