     Last Tuesday, at the January meeting of our Pastoral Council, the following members were elected: Ted Egan, chairperson, Loretta Gudenas, vice chairperson, Faye Roth, recording secretary, and Nancy Anzlovar corresponding secretary.

     The Council will be working on several projects this year including our 10th Anniversary celebration, reviving some parish organizations, working on new fund-raising programs and making changes to our Mass schedule.

    The Pastoral Council is one of two advisory bodies – the other is the Finance Council – that advises me on important matters related to parish life. I rely on their advice especially because they represent all the members of the parish. If anyone has any concerns that they want addressed in the parish, they can always bring them up to a member of the Pastoral Council.    


                      God Bless! Fr. Joe Bacevice


We ask you to remember in our prayers the souls of  Eleanora Gaizutis and Helen Kastelic who died recently and were buried from our Parish. May they be at peace forever in the blessedness of heaven.

In a few weeks, we will begin the 2019 Catholic Charities Annual Parish Appeal. This is a reminder to everyone who pledged in 2018 to complete your pledge payments as soon as possible.

The Diocese of Cleveland honors the Church’s teaching that every life is cherished, chosen and sent. Each year, the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist celebrates the Mass for Life on January 22nd, the anniversary date of Roe v. Wade. Members of all parishes and students from all high schools are encouraged to join in prayer at the special liturgy on Tuesday, January 22nd at 10:00am. Following Mass, the Rosary for Life will be prayed. In our society, it is easy to see ways that the dignity of human life is disregarded. God creates every person for eternal union with himself and continually invites us to embrace the teaching that every life is chosen.



The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC is the national University of the Catholic Church in the United States. It provides an academically rigorous education guided by Catholic intellectual tradition to nearly 7,000 students every year.

Our Diocese will celebrate the World Day for Immigrants, Migrants and Refugees at Our Lady of Peace Church on Sunday, January 20, at the 11:00 Mass. Bishop Martin Amos will be the main celebrant. Every year this event is a very prayerful and joyful celebration of the rich cultural diversity of our diocesan community – we come from many lands, but in faith we are one people. All are welcome to join this celebration at Our Lady of Peace Church, 12601 Shaker Blvd., Cleveland, Ohio 44120.



Retrouvaille is a three month program to help couples struggling in their marriages. It has three phases, starting with a weekend experience in which couples learn to re-establish communication and to gain new insights into themselves as individuals and as a couple. Post sessions are held over a period of 12 weeks to further develop and enhance the techniques learned. A support group is available offering interaction with other couples who are striving to improve their relationship. The 2019 weekends are: January 25-27, March 22-24, and September 27-29.
