First Step for Change

Catholic Charities will hold its annual First Step for Change campaign from Mother’s Day through Father’s Day, honoring the faith, humility and love it takes to raise a child, and recognizing that many parents lack adequate financial resources for their children.  Funds raised through this campaign assist low-income pregnant women and families with food, formula, clothing, diapers and other items essential to a child’s health, safety and well-being.  Each family interested in participating in this pro-life effort is asked to pick up a FIRST STEP PACKET after Mass.  Take the FIRST STEP PACKET home, learn about the program, complete the participation card and return it to our parish by June 30.  All money collected by our parish will help to meet the need in our own community.  Thank you for joining us in supporting this pro-life campaign.

Renee's Clothes Closet

Renee’s Clothes Closet has been permanently closed as of June 2023.  All donations can be taken directly to St. Vincent DePaul Thrift Store in Warren, Ohio.

Annual Diocesan Appeal

Before Pentecost, Jesus pronounced his intention that his Spirit should remain with his apostles, with the power to forgive sins. Today, the Catholic Church, led by the apostles’ successors, is the only place where people can find complete reconciliation and peace of heart.

The world is full of people who feel cut off from God, alone, or unforgiveable. The beauty of our Catholic heritage is not an imposing institution with a bunch of suffocating rules. Our heritage is mercy.

In Confession, our parish offers this mercy straight from the heart of Christ, just as Christ poured forth His Holy Spirit on his apostles at Pentecost. Please support our Annual Diocesan Appeal, so we can help people encounter God’s mercy more deeply. Christ trusts our parish to bring all his children into communion with him. There is no better path to restoring intimacy with God than the sacrament of Reconciliation: “Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them” (John 20:23). Jesus meant it, and the Holy Spirit confirmed it! Please help our parish help more people find the sweetness of God’s love through the sacraments.

THANK YOU to everyone who has made a gift to the 2024 Annual Diocesan Appeal – One in Hope, One in MissionTo date, 151 parishioners have made a contribution to the appeal totaling $40,640 (90.11%.)  Our parish portion of the $4,000,000 diocesan goal is $44,100.00.
