Liturgical Ministers - Lenten Recollection
Monday, March 1, 2021 at 7PM
In person - Livestream - Zoom

For further information, visit our website at:

The Diocese of Cleveland was given a unique opportunity by way of a grant from the Catholic Leadership Institute to participate in a pilot program that will result in a multitude of benefits for the parishes of our diocese. 

The Catholic Leadership Institute provides bishops, priests, religious, deacons, and lay persons in the Roman Catholic Church with world-class, pastoral leadership formation and consulting services that strengthen their confidence and competence in ministry, enabling them to articulate a vision for their local church, to call forth the gifts of those they lead, and to create more vibrant faith communities rooted in Jesus Christ.

How can you help? We are asking all of our parishioners to participate in a survey regarding the strengths and needs of our parish. This survey has several purposes. It will...
   - Allow our parishioners to reflect upon their spiritual growth and discipleship;
   - Identify the ways in which the parish effectively supports that growth and
look at opportunities to support that growth more in the future;
   - Provide valuable input to help pastors and parish leaders make decisions and
plan effectively;
   - Help pastors and parish leaders have a sense of where to focus their
evangelization efforts.

The deadline for completion is Monday, March 22nd. The survey should take you between 10-15 minutes to complete. Please note that your responses are kept confidential. Your parish and Catholic Leadership Institute will not have access to individual survey responses.

CLICK HERE to complete the survey. Access to the survey may also be found on our parish website. Those who do not have access to a computer can pick up a paper copy of the survey at the parish office.

Thank you again for your participation in this important initiative!

May God bless you!

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
With Confessions

Monday - March 1st at at 6:30pm

This week only - Exposition and Confessions will end at 7:00pm instead of 7:30pm to accommodate
the rescheduled Liturgical Ministers event.

In order to help raise much needed monies to make up for the shortfall in our budget caused by the pandemic we are excited to announce a new church fundraiser! In a few weeks you will be receiving a letter and calendar for the month of April with prizes listed for each day of the month. We are asking you to buy and or sell these calendars for the cost of $25.00 each.

Each day of the month will have a designated prize assigned to it and each day a name will be drawn and the winner will be notified of that day’s prize. Once your name gets picked, it will go back into the drawing for additional chances to win again! For $25.00 you will get 30 chances to win a daily prize worth a $25.00 value, with some days being more! If anyone would like to donate cash or gift cards of any amount to help keep the cost down that would be greatly appreciated! Please call Angie & Bill Noyes at (216) 912-8679 for more information.
