A Letter from the Office of the Bishop
August 22, 2021
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As you may have seen in the media reports, the people of Haiti experienced both an earthquake and a tropical storm earlier this month. Already an impoverished nation, Haitians are attempting to cope with both human loss and the loss of so many homes and buildings, including structures the Church relies on for worship, education, and charitable works.
The Bishops of the United States are inviting the faithful to respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters through a special collection. I have asked the pastors of the Diocese of Belleville to invite your support in the month of September. All funds donated for Haiti will be distributed by charities which will provide immediate aid to those who are hurting as a result of the two disasters.
As thousands of poor people in Haiti pray to God for help, I invite you to join me in begin part of God's loving response through your generous donation to this special collection.
May Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Patroness of Haiti, intercede for all who died or were injured in these disasters, along with their families. May Our Lady intercede for all of us and keep us close to Jesus her Son.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Michael McGovern, Bishop of Belleville
Thank you to our
for continuing to
support St. Joseph!
