ORDINATION DATE ANNOUNCED FOR NEW BELLEVILLE BISHOP 

Wednesday July 22, 2020 will be the date for the ordination and installation of Bishop-elect Michael McGovern as the ninth Bishop of Belleville. Cardinal Blase Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago, will be the principal consecrator. Bishop George J. Rassas, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus of Chicago and Bishop Edward K. Braxton, who will become Bishop Emeritus of Belleville, will serve as co-consecrators in the Cathedral of St. Peter for the 2 p.m. ordination Mass.
 
Archbishop Christophe Pierre, Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, has confirmed that he will participate in the ordination liturgy. Archbishop Pierre, who serves as the representative of Pope Francis to the United States, will read the papal bull  (or letter)  from the Pope appointing Bishop-elect McGovern to Belleville.
(Due to concern for the health and safety of the public in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, attendance at the ordination liturgy will be limited and social distancing protocols will be in place. The Diocese of Belleville is exploring options for broadcasting the liturgy so that people can participate in the ordination while at home.)
