From the Pastor:

 

  It seems that I am spending most of my days here getting re-acquainted with everybody as well as getting used to new ways of doing things and meeting new people too.  I have a dedicated email address for everyone in the parish to use if you want to contact me about something.  The email address to reach me is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  In previous years I had a yahoo email address, but that yahoo address was stolen around Christmastime of 2014.  The Yahoo/AT&T people gave me the runaround with both of them telling me to call the other one and so my email just disappeared and left me without anybody’s email address in my contacts list.  Even now from time to time someone in my family or yahoo email list tries to contact me using the old address and then they get a bit upset that I am not answering their emails.  So everyone, please, use this new address at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

         Bishop Nelson Perez sent out a letter to all of the parishes stating that the Diocese of Cleveland will be using funds from the Rooted in Faith, Forward in Hope campaign to fund a one-year subscription to FORMED (http://formed.org).  Our parish subscription to FORMED will expire in March of 2019, and the diocesan free subscription will begin on April 21, 2019, Easter Sunday.  I usually fall asleep on the couch at my brother Joe’s house in Wickliffe by Easter Sunday afternoon.  So I won’t be using the free subscription on Easter Sunday.  But all of you will have the chance to continue or start using FORMED for another year thanks to the Rooted in Faith campaign.  If you remember, our parish was one of the pilot parishes for the campaign and we led the way for other parishes to have a successful campaign just as we had.

         This is a busy weekend with Masses for the Fourth Sunday of Advent followed by Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Masses on Monday and Tuesday.

The parish office is closed until Wednesday January 2, 2019I pray that all of you will enjoy a Blessed and Merry Christmas!

         Fr Troha

Used Clothing Drop-Off Shed

There is a new Used Clothing Drop-off Shed located along the fence-line in the main parking lot. Items accepted are:

All clothing, shoes, sneakers, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, pillowcases, drapes, and stuffed toys. Please....NO rags, fabric scraps, pillows, toys, or household goods; please understand that these unwanted items are a hardship and expense to dispose of.

The company servicing this shed is St Pauly Textile. They have been working with a large number of parishes in New York State and are expanding now into Ohio. They send the clothing to people who can use it all over the US and World.

Recycling these clothing items help the environment by keeping your clothing out of the landfill.

You may be able to receive a tax deduction for your donation. Receipts are on the shed.

Please help us to keep your donation clean and dry. If possible, please put in tied or closed bags. Thank you!
