      This weekend, we will participate in an important Follow-Up Parish Appeal for Catholic Charities. This is not a special collection, rather it is a chance for all Catholics to make a commitment to Walk in Faith and Give in Joy by sharing the gifts which God has given you.

     Funds raised through this effort will be invested in improving the camping experience for cam-pers with disabilities through camperships to help reduce the financial burden, provide programs and activities for campers with special needs, and renovate cabins to make them accessible to everyone. With your help, Catholic Charities will be able to support more campers with disabilities and enhance their experience at Camp Christopher and find God in nature.

     All new, increased, and additional gifts donated this weekend in the In-Pew envelopes, or online at will be matched up to $100,000.

     We hope you see the benefits that camp can have on those with special needs. Prayerfully consider the impact you can have on all who attend Camp Christopher, and please give as generously as possible. Contact Karen Joyce at 216-696-6525 x 1910. Thank you for making a difference.

God Bless!
Fr. Joe Bacevice

Again this year, our Catholic War Veterans Post 613 will have their annual Memorial Day commemoration here at St. Casimir, beginning at 8:30am with a service at the Freedom Memorial in our Neff Road parking lot, followed by Mass.

Memorial Day is approaching, and our Catholic War Veterans Post 613 will have their annual Poppy Distribution.

This Saturday, May 19th, Bishop Perez ordained seven men as priests to serve our diocese, one to serve Deagu, South Korea, and one to serve the Congregation of St. Joseph.

May God’s blessings be with them as they begin their priestly ministry.
