Our entire Province II shares in mourning the passing of Bishop G.P. Mellick Belshaw, IX Bishop of New Jersey. Bishop Belshaw’s leadership and ministry provided us all a pattern for a life lived for Jesus. Bishop Belshaw and his family remain in our prayers.
Into your hands. O merciful Savior, we commend your servant Mellick.
Acknowledge we humbly beseech you a sheep of your own
fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own redeeming.
Receive him into the arms of your mercy, into the blessed rest
of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company
of the saints in light. Amen.
May his soul and the souls of all the departed, through
the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen
