Temporary Mass Schedule

Saturday 4:00 PM

Sunday 8:00 & 10:30 AM

Weekdays 8:00 AM

     In this time of epidemic, we are able to celebrate public Mass on the weekends as well as on weekday mornings.  All are welcome, although we do caution those who are particularly vulnerable to the virus to pray with us from home.  In the church, the seating has been roped off to provide an acceptable distance between worshippers.  Of course, we observe the wearing of masks, appropriate distancing, and other measures that are necessary to slow the spread of the virus.  


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


"The Birth of the Messiah"

"How still we see thee lie..."

Join us in a five-week study of the Biblical story of the birth of Jesus.  We'll go beyond shepherds and kings to see the deeper meaning of the symbols of the Christmas story.  Led by Fr. Mike, you can join in person (please call the Parish Office to reseve your spot, as seating will be limited), or online (please call the Parish Office to get the link needed for online partcipation).  The Study will be held on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 PM in the former school library.  We'll begin on Wednesday, December 2!     


During the season of Advent, the church will

be open throughout the day every Tuesday

from 8:30 AM until 6:00 PM with the Blessed Sacrament exposed for adoration

and prayer.  All are welcome! 

Stop by for a minute

or stay for an hour!
