From the Diocese of Cleveland regarding Fr. Misenko
It is with great sadness that we announce to you the resignation of Fr. Misenko from the pastorate of Holy Trinity Parish due to medical circumstances. Father has requested time to get some medical issues under control.
Thank you for your support of Fr. Misenko during his 23 year ministry as pastor of Holy Trinity Parish. Be assured of his gratitude and continued prayers for all of you.
Fr. John Manning has been assigned by Bishop Malesic as an interim administrator and will assume the duties and tasks necessary in this time of transition. The Clergy Personnel Board will now take the next steps in the process of recommending to the Bishop the name of a new pastor.
Please watch the parish bulletin and this website for details as to how you can participate in the process. Please continue to pray for Fr. Misenko, for your parish community and for the Diocese as the search for a new pastor begins.
Fr. Manning will be available for weekday Masses this week on Wednesday (May 19th) and Friday (May 21st) at 8:00 AM.
There will not be a Mass on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday of this week....May 17th, 18th and 20th.

Prayer intentions will include all the suffering children in the world.
Come honor our Blessed Mother and make this a powerful prayer event.
Rosary Prayer Project
The month of May is dedicated to our Blessed Mother
We all benefit from the Loving Care and Intercession of our Blessed Mother.
This past year has brought disruption and hardship for all of us, including our children. We have 800 children in our care through our day school and PSR program. To show these children that we are thinking of them, we are asking parishioners to commit to saying a decade of the Rosary each day during the month of May for a particular child in our parish family.
If you would like to participate, names are available by calling the Parish Office....937-5363.
We ask the Blessed Mother to watch over and protect these children and intercede on their behalf for their intentions.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, please pray for Us!

Mini Congregation UPDATE.... July 12, 2020
Thank you to those that have signed up to join our mini-congregations. We have been rotating through the list since the beginning of May and it seems that the process is beginning to settle into somewhat of a pattern. First and foremost "Thank you for your patience!" This process is unprecedented and goes against everything that we know as Church. Our goal is to get you back into our beautiful Church as safely as possible as often as possible all the while trying to assure physical distancing between households. It is a slow but deliberate process.
Here are a few reminders and updates about the process:
- Please fill out the form only once. Your name stays on the list until you request that it be taken off.
- If you have changed your mind and you no longer feel comfortable coming to Mass... it is not a problem, simply let us know. We can delete your name from the list and when you are ready to return, you fill out the questionnaire once again and you are automatically and quickly added back into the rotation. It is very simple.
- If you waited to sign up, and are now ready to come to Church... WE are ready for you whenever you are ready to return. Fill out the mini-congregation questionnaire whenver you are ready to come back to church. Your name automatically gets put back on our list and you will be back into the attendance rotation.
Because the attendance requirement is limited; parishioners can plan on attending Mass on a rotating basis every few weeks. This rotation is the only way we can fit all parishioners, who choose to join us, into the church building while also adhering to the physical distance requirements that are meant to keep us safe. To build the rotation schedule for Mass attendance, we will need to gather some information from those families who choose to attend Mass. Information we will need includes: your name, Mass time you prefer to attend, number of family members who will be attending with you and your contact information (we prefer your email address and would appreciate a phone number too).
While the Masses might not be full, it is a beginning to our return to normal. Of course, our plans/policy will change if we receive other directives from the Bishops of Ohio. Please continue to stay tuned to this website for further and up to date information. We are eager to welcome parishioners back into our beautiful church building, but do have your safety and concern in mind.
Please fill out this form if you would like to participate in a "Mini Congregation" when we begin to re-open our churches.
