On Thursday, Oct. 10, students, educators, priests and volunteers from around Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth and Ocean Counties will gather with Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., for the annual Catholic Schools Mass at 10 a.m. in St. Robert Bellarmine, Co-Cathedral, Freehold.
Due to space constraints the annual Mass is not open to the general public. However, it will be live-streamed on the Diocese’s YouTube channel, which you can watch below:
Participants will come together from 40 parish, regional, diocesan and independent Catholic schools from across the Diocese. More than 700 upper elementary and high school students will gather with adult advisors, school leaders and parish clergy to give thanks for Catholic school education and to pray for all those involved in this critical ministry for the Church.
