Beginning on May 25, we will begin to celebrate public Masses in the church again.  Of course, these celebrations will include compliance with the directives of the Office of the Governor and the guidance of the Bishops of Ohio and our own Diocese.  Among the directives will be the wearing of protective masks, appropriate distancing, and other practices that will help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.  



Please know that attendance at Mass is optional.  The Bishops have extended the dispensation for the obligation to attend Sunday Mass indefinitely.  The church building will contnue to be open from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM every day.  Everyone is welcome to spend time in prayer.  The church is sanitized every day before opening.  Let us all pray for an end to this crisis, for those who are ill, and those who are most vulnerable.  Call the Parish Office at 330-733-9944 with any questions or concerns.

Unfortunately, due to the corona virus epidemic, our mission trip scheduled for June has been postponed until next year.  Thank you to all who have supported our mission financially and prayerfully.  

There is an opportunity for our parish to serve the mission in another way.  As in many places, there is a shortage of protective masks for those who live and work at The Christian Appalachian Project Center, as well as for the people of the local community.  We will be collecting homemade cloth masks at the Parish Office and sending them to Appalachia as soon as we can!  If you are willing and able to help with this mission project, please call Pat Flaherty at 330-671-4613. 


You can stay at home and still be a missionary!
