A Little History of the Faith in the Diocese of Allentown:

It was on January 28, 1961, that the Diocese of Allentown was established. Berks, Carbon, Lehigh, Northampton and Schuylkill counties would be split off from the Archdiocese of
Philadelphia, Pope John XXIII wrote in an apostolic letter, “as one bud sprouting from another.”
A few weeks later, the Pope appointed Bishop Joseph M. McShea as the founding Bishop of our Diocese. “This is a day of birth,” Bishop McShea said on the occasion of his installation in the Cathedral of Saint Catharine of Siena. “The Diocese of Allentown springs forth as another flowering of the Catholic Church, the mighty tree born of the smallest of seeds.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church #1373

 

“Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us,” is present in many ways to his Church: 197 in his word, in his Church’s prayer, “where two or three are gathered in my name,” 199 in the poor, the sick, and the imprisoned,199 in the sacraments of which he is the author, in the sacrifice of the Mass, and in the person of the minister. But “he is present . . . most especially in the Eucharistic species”
