Monday, February 3rd, is the Feast of St. Blaise, the day we
traditionally bless throats. In honor of St. Blaise, we will bless throats
after all the Masses next weekend.
Thanks to everyone who participated in our first ever Trivia Night last
Saturday. Special thanks goes to Loretta Gudenas who coordinated the entire
event. After expenses, the parish received $1,525.00.
The Gospel tells us that Jesus “withdrew” when John the Baptist was
arrested. It is important to know when to withdraw. Many disputes at home
are about petty things. We may win an argument but damage the relationship.
Knowing when to withdraw from conflict is the Spirit’s gift of wisdom and
the reward is peace.
2020 CATHOLIC CHARITIES APPEAL:
Though we are many, we are one in Christ.
Many parishioners received letters earlier this month inviting their
support of the Annual Appeal. Please pray for the good work of Catholic
Charities and make a pledge today. Your donation makes a difference!
Your support of the 2020 Catholic Charities Annual Appeal will help us
serve those individuals who are most in need and most vulnerable. From
Matthew’s Gospel: “Whatever you did for the least of these, you did it
for me.” When we feed the hungry, take care of the sick and welcome the
stranger, we are also serving Jesus himself.
We appreciate your donation and will take care to use it wisely in
providing essential programs and service to people in need throughout all
eight counties of the Diocese of Cleveland. We invite you to view stories of
inspiration and more information at
