Are your little ones wiggleworms during mass? It is so wonderful seeing your beautiful families at Mass! Though it’s not always easy, thank you for making the effort to bring your young children. It is important that they are there. Help keep kids focused and calm, with a Mass Bag from the Gathering Area. Grab a bag on the way in. Mass Bags are complete with a book, coloring book, crayons, stickers and goldfish crackers! Please return at end of Mass so they can be restocked as needed. Enjoy!

Remember to RECYCLE! Give us your paper and cardboard. This includes: wrapping paper, catalogs, cards and packaging (paper) and boxes. Flatten all cardboard boxes before placing them in the bins. The funds we receive for recycling are used for our Youth Ministry programs.

Walking the Journey

Reciting the Rosary On the first Thursday of each month, we recite the rosary at 5:30 pm in the Gathering Area.

Ministry Opportunities:

Children’s Liturgy of the Word needs YOU! Please consider helping during 11 am mass. Lead our youngest parishioners through simple age-appropriate lessons each Sunday, and assist with the supervision of the children. This is a great opportunity for adults and middle school/high school youth to help these sweet youngsters learn the Word of the Lord.

St. Philip Neri needs your help! Anyone available to serve a meal on March 17th or March 24th? Please consider sharing some of your time to serve hot meals to those in need. This is a wonderful ministry to do as a family and so rewarding for all. Call Debbie Lokar at (440) 256-1412 for more information.

St. Vincent De Paul offers many opportunities to help others. Call Dee at (440) 256-1412.
