Please help us prepare for the start of the catechetical year by returning your registration forms to the parish office as soon as possible. If your family is new to the parish or program, please contact Eileen Edwards at 330-296- 6434 for information and registration forms.

RCIA...An Invitation to Journey in Faith Are you, or someone you know, interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, joining the Catholic Church, or completing your initiation through the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist? If so, our parish community invites you to explore the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process. For more information contact Eileen Edwards, Director of Religious Education, in the parish office at 330-296- 6434.

IT'S TIME FOR A PARISH CENSUS Please help us update our parish records. A 2020 Parish Census form was mailed out to our parishioners this past week. We ask each household to complete this form with as much detail as possible and return it to the parish within the next month. This task may take some time, but the information each family provides will help us to better serve the needs of our members. Please be assured that this information will be kept confidential and used by parish staff only.

If you are new to our parish and have not yet registered, please contact the parish office at 330-296-6434 to have a form sent to you. You can also download the form here.

We thank you for your time and assistance with this project!

FOOTBALL FRENZY TICKETS K of CThe Knights of Columbus will be selling Football Frenzy Tickets again this Fall. The money raised helps the K of C State Council Charity Fund, who in turn donate to Special Olympics and other similar charities. The winning tickets are determined from the last 10 weeks of the NFL season. If the season is cancelled, the winners will be determined from games played over the past 5 years. The tickets are $20 each and can be purchased from any K of C member. Because we will not be selling in Tobin Hall, we will be happy to meet with you after any Mass. If you prefer, please fill out the information below and drop it in the collection and we will be happy to set up a meeting. If you have any questions, please call: Mike Reder at 330-297-0113.

Stewardship Thought
August 16, 2020 - Once again in today's Gospel reading, Jesus extends his powerful ministry of healing. Throughout these everchanging times when we are all impacted by many effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must recognize our call to share our gifts with other in he form of ministry. Ministry does not have to be a formal program within a parish; it can be as simple as sharing a smile, a kind gesture, or our time with someone in need.
