On Wednesday, July 11th, we will have Eucharistic Adoration in the Church from 6-7pm. All are invited to stop in and spend some time in quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.


This weekend, Fr. Bill Roland, SM, of the Marist Missions will conduct our summer Mission Appeal. Since its official recognition by the Church in 1836, the Marist Fathers and Brother have committed themselves to the missions of the southwest Pacific. Since that time, they have expanded into areas of Africa, Asia and South America. Today there are nearly 230 priests and brothers working in “bush stations,” teaching, ministering in training institutions, providing direct service to the poor, oppressed and marginalized, and contributing to the development of people for a better society and a strong local church. Contributions to this Mission Appeal will help the Marists in their mission to witness to the Gospel, service to the needy and helping the local Church build a strong base for its promising future. Thank you for whatever you can do to help them in their life-long commitment and work. Special envelopes for this appeal are on the tables at the entrances to the Church.


The Holy Name Society is pleased to announce that this year’s Annual Picnic for Parishioners will take place on Wednesday, July 25, from 5-8 pm for the first time at the East Shore Park Club, at the corner of East Park and Dorchester Dr., on the shores of Lake Erie. Hot dogs, burgers, snacks and soft drinks will be served. There is no cost for the picnic as the Holy Name Society underwrites the entire cost. This is a good way to meet fellow parishioners and learn about the Holy Name Society. We look forward to seeing you there.


The best gift you can give is your time. This Father’s Day weekend, make sure to invite Dad (and the rest of the family) to spend time with you at the FEST on Sunday, August 5th. The perfect family day and free event is full of great music, engaging displays, and fun activities. Of course, the highlight of the whole day is the outdoor Mass, beginning at 8:00pm with Bishop Perez. You and your dad are not going to want to miss any of this, so make sure to head out to the Center for Pastoral Leadership in Wickliffe for a day full of faith, family and friends.

     This break has given me some time to start thinking about our future as a parish and what we will be as a parish in five, ten or even twenty years. Each year, we as a parish have gone through several changes. Although each one seems insignificant, when taken together, I can see that we are very different from what we were just a few years ago.

     The first thing I notice is that Mass attendance is down across all our weekend Masses, while weekday Mass attendance has actually increased. Since the end of the 2011-2012 fiscal year, Offertory Collection has been going down. The total offertory collection for the fiscal year that just ended is down $31,000 from the 2012 fiscal year. Even with our offertory collections going down, our total income has gone up from $335,000 at the end o the 2012 fiscal year to $499,000 at the end of this fiscal year. For the past few years, our rental income has exceeded our offertory income. As our income has increased, so have our expenses. Over the past nine years, we have spent over $652,000 on major improvements, and there is still much more that needs to be done. For the past several years, we have had to delay major improvements, primarily on the church building, because of a lack of funds.
     During the coming months, the Pastoral and Finance Councils and I will be looking at all aspects of parish life. I am asking them to make suggestions to me on how we can improve parish life. I will also be asking everyone in the parish the same questions. I want to look at everything: Mass schedules, spiritual programs, parish activities, fund raisers, and parish organizations, to see how we can improve, and how we can engage our members of all ages and backgrounds, so that we can continue to grow and thrive to be a vibrant parish, one that serves the needs of our members, reaches out to welcome new members, and takes an active role in our North Collinwood community.

We ask you to remember in your prayers the soul of Antoinette Van Loozen who died recently and was buried from our parish. May she have eternal rest in the peace of God’s kingdom.


All are reminded that there will be no coffee hour after the 10:00 Mass during the entire month of July. Coffee will resume in early August.
