From the middle of August on, we focus on "Back to School." Holy Family School begins on Tuesday, August 23 and our opening school Mass is on the next day, Wednesday, August 24, the feast day of St. Bartholomew. All are welcome to join us at 8:30am for this special dedication of our new school year to God's care and protection.
Our Religious Education program (CCD) begins in September. Please register your children by this Friday, August 26. For more information call Karen McCeary at 330-757-1545.
Later this month on the weekend of August 27/28, we will be hosting the Irish Pallotine Fathers in their missionary appeal. At all the Masses, Fr. Claudius will be making this appeal. The second collection is for this purpose. Please be generous. Thank you.
As we move forward to Labor Day weekend, a reminder that our Mass on Labor Day, Sept. 5, is at 9:00am. On Sunday, September 4, Mother Theresa of Calcutta will be declared a saint by Pope Francis. Check EWTN for broadcast of this Mass of Canonization from Rome's St. Peter's Basilica.
May God bless us all!
Msgr. Connell, pastor of Holy Family.
