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.
