TRAVELING VOCATIONS CHALICE PROGRAM The Traveling Chalice Program encourages prayers for vocations. This is a wonderful opportunity for all parishioners! Individuals or families can sign up to take home a special chalice blessed by Father Kraynak, and every day for one week take a few minutes to pray for vocations using special vocation prayer cards. The chalice is to be returned prior to the next weekend's Mass. It will be displayed in the church and then presented at the end of Mass to the individual or family who is taking it home that week. We invite you to prayerfully consider participating in the program. The program kicks off on Palm Sunday. Sign up in the sacristy for your week with the traveling chalice!

2019 Annual Bishop's AppealBishop's AppealOur parish has been asked to join together with the parishes of the Diocese of Youngstown in offering our support to this year's appeal. Our financial need is $4.2 million. Our goal this year is to reach 100% participation. Use the response card you received in the mail OR use an envelope found in your pew to respond. VOLUNTEER your time and talents to any of the ministries of the Church. Please submit a response card even if you are unable to make a gift of any dollar amount. Thank you in advance for your reflection and generous response.

St. Patrick Mission April 7-8-9Plan now to attend Parish Mission entitled "No Greater Love: Reflections on the Seven Last Words of Jesus," to be held at St. Patrick, Kent, on April 7-8-9 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. Friar Johnpaul, from Chicago, will lead us in a reflection on the seven last words of Jesus in his engaging and informative style. His storytelling and humor bring to life the message of Jesus' words to us, who are his disciples in today's world. This will be an enjoyable and faith-strengthening experience for junior high students through senior citizens. Topics such as faith and doubt, addictions and conversion, depressions and surrender, death and new life will be explored. Be sure to make our Parish Mission part of your Lenten spiritual journey this year. Come, and bring a friend or family member for an hour-and-a-half you will not soon forget!

VOCATIONS Most likely, we will never experience God speaking to us in a burning bush. But he does speak to us in the quiet of our prayer where he places in our hearts his call for us. Do you feel God calling you to serve as a priest, brother, sister or as a deacon? If so, call Father Christopher Luoni at (330) 744-8451 or by email: cluoni@youngstowndiocese.org.

Stewardship Thought
March 24, 2019 - "He said to the gardener, 'For three years now I have come in search of fruit on this fig tree but have found none.'"  --Luke 13:7

We can all be like the barren fig tree at times. Do you cling to what you have or do you generously share with others? How will you respond when God asks you what you have done with all the gifts He has given you? Remember, not only are we called to be generous, we are called to develop and nurture our gifts and return with increase.
