On Monday, March 16th, we will be hosting all the parishes
in Collinwood for our Lenten Cluster Mass. After Mass, everyone is invited
to our Upper Hall (gym) for food and fellowship. We need volunteers to
bake, set up and clean up. Those willing to help out are asked to sign
up at the main entrance to the church or contact Ingrid Civinskas at:
or call 440-838-0652.
BLACK & INDIAN MISSIONS
The annual collection to support the Black and Indian Missions takes place
next weekend. This is the oldest designated collection in the United
States. We ask everyone to be generous in supporting this important work of
the Catholic Church.
Jesus challenges us to be generous in our love. Keeping score, getting even,
holding grudges, being resistant, and hating enemies are not routes to
holiness and a fulfilling life. Draw on God’s limitless love for you to go
the extra mile, seek the great good, love your enemies and see what miracles
God can work in your life. You cannot out give God.
Beginning October 1, 2019, the parish began accepting online donations
either by credit card of direct withdrawal from bank accounts. Since we
began this, we have received over $8,000 from online giving.
There are many benefits to making your donations online for both the
donor and the parish. For the donor it is convenient to donate any time from
any place through the internet, it is secure and confidential as we adhere
to banking security standards, it is flexible, as donors can start, stop or
change contributions at any time, and it is simple, as there is no need to
contact your bank or our office. For the parish, it stabilizes our weekly
income so it is not affected as much by bad weather or vacations, it is
secure and confidential, and it is an effective tool for parishioners who
prefer using electronic services.
Just go to our website:
click on the online donation button, and follow the prompts. Give it a try.
It’s a simple, safe and convenient way to support your parish.
