     With most of our activities shut down for the summer, it’s time for vacations and relaxation. At this time of year, I like to remind everyone to have a safe and enjoyable summer. Don’t forget to participate at Mass each weekend, and PLEASE remember to support your parish. Our expenses never take a vacation. 

     Again this summer there will a lot of things happening here and in our neighborhood. We finally obtained the approval from the city Landmarks Commission to replace the handicap entrance to the Church building and replace the front porch of the Rectory building. Because of this delay (we have been trying since March), the work won’t begin until the beginning of July.

     The Marcella Road sewer project is scheduled to begin around July 1st. I am going to a pre-construction meeting on Wednesday to hear more details. The project will be completed hopefully by July, 2020, so we’re looking at one year of traffic congestion, limited access to our Marcella parking lot along with the noise and dirt from drilling the sewer tunnel on our parking lot entrance. 

     We are working on a lease for a new tenant in our Convent building. Hopefully we can be successful in our negotiations and have the new tenant in place before September.

     Also during this summer we are putting together a program where we will ask everyone to re-commit themselves to our parish as we celebrate our tenth anniversary along with planning our annual clambake and autumn raffle and putting together our activity calendar for the next activity year.

     Finally, as many of you prepare for summer vacation, I want to leave everyone with this question: with the new Mass schedule taking effect December 1, 2019, what do you want to see happen to our 10:00 Sunday coffee hour?


God Bless! Fr. Joe Bacevice


On this Trinity Sunday we are reminded that the Church has chosen the language of “family” to name our human experience of God. We refer to God as Father, Jesus as Son and Brother, the Church as Mother, and other Christians as our brothers and sisters. The way we act in our family relationships tells others a lot about the God we worship. St John Paul II and Pope Francis teach us that the family is the first and most important school of love and mercy! Center your family on the model of the Trinity, of God’s loving and life-giving relationships. 


The Council welcomes Tim Loehmann as its newest member. Tim replaces Gerald Thompson who had to resign because of his work schedule. Tim’s term will expire December 31, 2020.


     This Sunday we honor our fathers. In his exhortation “Amoris Laetitia” (The Joy of Love), Pope Francis writes beautifully about the role of the father in a family.

     “God sets the father in the family so that by the gifts of his masculinity he can be close to his wife and share everything, joy and sorrow, hope and hardship. And to be close to his children as they grow – when they play and when they work, when they are carefree and when they are distressed, when they are talkative and when they are silent, when they are daring and when they are afraid, whey they stray and when they get back on the right path. To be a father is to be always present. When I say ‘present’, I do not mean ‘controlling.’ Fathers who are too controlling overshadow their children, they don’t let them develop. Some fathers feel they are useless and unnecessary, but the fact is that children need to find a father waiting for them when they return home with their problems. They may try hard not to admit it, not to show it, but they need it. It is not good for children to lack a father and grow up before they are ready.” (177) Happy Fathers Day!


We are looking for a few good people to help keep our parish running smoothly. We need additional ushers who can greet people when they come to Mass, take up the weekly collection, and act as “first responders” when someone needs help in Church. We hope to be able to provide first aid training for them. If anyone is interested in being a church usher, please contact Father Bacevice.


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 4th. The perfect family day, this year’s free event is full of great music and a host of 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 For more information see:
