The Annual Diocesan Mass for the Separated and Divorced will conclude the Separated and Divorced Retreat on September 12 at 11:00 a.m. at San Pedro Center-Camp Side. This Mass is celebrated in memory of Father James J. Young, CSP, who was instrumental in founding the North American Conference of Separated & Divorced Catholics in 1974. He was a man of vision and compassion, heeding the Gospel call of ministering to divorced men and women who need a voice in the Church. He was the first chaplain of the NACSDC and guided it until his untimely death in September 12, 1986.
