2021 ANNUAL BISHOP'S APPEAL Bishop's AppealLast week our parish joined parishes throughout the Diocese of Youngstown in asking every Catholic family to support the 2021 Annual Bishop's Appeal. The Appeal is the primary funding source for Catholic Charities in the six counties of our diocese. Especially as we continue to weather the effects of the pandemic, there has been an increase in the number of needy persons coming to Catholic Charities for help, and they depend on our support of the Bishop's Appeal.

More information on the Bishop's Appeal is avaailable in the Weekly Bulletin.

K OF C FOOD FOR FAMILIES LENTEN FOOD DRIVEK of CThe Knights of Columbus will be conducting their Lenten food drive, "Food for Families", beginning Ash Wednesday, February 17. Due to the pandemic, however, we will not be asking for can/box items, but will graciously accept gift cards to a local Grocery store, in any amount. The gift cards will be sent to Catholic Charities of Portage County to be given to those in need.

Please place your gift card(s) in an envelope marked "Food for Families" and deliver them to the parish in any of the following ways:

  • Place in the offering containers at Mass.
  • Drop off at the parish office.
  • Place in the drop box outside the office entrance.
  • Mail to Knights of Columbus #1417, P. O. Box 349, Ravenna, Ohio 44266.

We thank you, in advance, for your consideration and generosity during these difficult times.

Stewardship Thought
March 7, 2021 - "You shall not carve idols for yourselves in the shape of anything…"  -- Exodus 20:4

How many "gods" do you put before God? "Idols" do not always take the shape of physical things, things we can touch and feel. Those are easy to recognize. Many times they take the form of things we cannot touch and are much harder to spot like pride, power, ego, time, comfort or health. Pray for God's help to prune our vices and to grow in virtue.
