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

     This weekend, as part of the National Collection for the Catholic University, we will be accepting donations for the University. Your support will enable Catholic University to expand its impact in preparing the next generation of leadership in our Church and nation. Please be generous.


“The right created by the Supreme Court in Roe is a constitutional right of some human beings to kill other human beings. I do not mean for my descript-tion to be provocative, but simply direct – blunt about facts. One need not presume that the human fetus has a right not to be killed in order to recognize that, as a descriptive matter, Roe creates a right for one class of human beings to kill other human beings.” (University of St. Thomas Law professor Michael Paulson).



The US Conference of Catholic Bishops has declared Monday, January 22, 2018, a National Day of Prayer and Penance for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. The Diocesan Mass for Life will take place on Monday, January 22, at 10:30am at the Cathedral, with The Most Rev. Martin J. Amos, Retired Bishop of Davenport, Iowa, as celebrant. All are invited to participate and pray for an end to abortion.


We will be accepting donations for Latin American Missions and El Salvador next weekend. This is the only appeal made by the Diocesan Mission Office for the Cleveland Latin American Mission in El Salvador. It is the main support for two diocesan priests who work in the two parishes served by our Mission Office. This appeal also makes a contribution to the Collection for the Church in Latin America that is managed by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and benefits projects and the formation of seminarians, religious and lay leaders in 23 countries across Latin America. Please be generous.


All are invited to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the restoration of Lithuania’s Independence. The celebration will take place on Saturday, February 17th, beginning at 2:00pm at Cleveland State University’s Main Classroom Auditorium (1899 E 22nd St., Cleveland). Close to 200 performers – singers and dancers from Toronto and Montreal, Canada, and Cleveland will entertain with song and dance. Following the performance, beginning at 6:00pm, there will be a banquet at the Crown Place at Playhouse Square (1260 Euclid Ave., Cleveland) Tickets to the performance are $25 (age 21 & under $10) and banquet tickets are $50. Bus transportation will be available before and after the concert from the Lithuanian Club. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Virginia Rubinski 216-486-9023.

    Each week, we publish this bulletin, every month we publish a newsletter for our shut-ins called the Ministry of Praise, four times each year, we publish a Lithuanian language missalette as a worship aid for those participating at our 10:00 Mass. Also, for our weekend Masses, we compose petitions for the Universal Prayer (also known as the Prayers of the Faithful) and pulpit announcements emphasizing important events in our parish.

     This work is a collaborative project involving several volunteers who help me. I am is the editor of the bulletin, and I write the pulpit announcements and the petitions for the Universal Prayer. The Ministry of Praise is composed and edited by Barbara Pallo. All these need to be translated into either Lithuanian or English as needed and formatted for publication either weekly, monthly and quarterly. Most of the translating work and formatting has been done by Julie Zivile Vaitkus. Helping her is Amanda Muliolis, who translates our pulpit announcements and petitions for the Universal Prayers.

     We are now looking for others to join our team and to help write, edit and translate these publications. Anyone who is knowledgeable and willing to help should contact either Father Bacevice or Julie Vaitkus.

    It takes a lot of time and energy to publish what we do. If we had more helpers, we would be able to give everyone a break and still provide quality materials for everyone in both Lithuanian and English. We look forward to hearing from you.


 God Bless ! Fr. Joe Bacevice  



Remember in your prayers the soul of Robert Philips who died recently and was buried from our Parish. May he have eternal rest in the peace of God’s kingdom.
