The Season of Lent is like a desert experience.
It is a time for prayer, for almsgiving and for fasting.
Pope Franicis reminds us that fasting does not limit itself to just giving up food. There are other ways in which we can fast. His list includes:
- Fast from hurting words and say kind words
- Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude
- Fast from anger and be filled with patience
- Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope
- Fast from worries and have trust in God
- Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity
- Fast from pressures and be prayerful
- Fast from bitterness and fill your hearts with joy
- Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others
- Fast from grudges and be reconciled
- Fast from words and be silent so you can listen.
May our Lenten Journey to Conversion be a truly joyful experience in our care and concern for our brothers and sisters in God's wonderful family.

Watch Sunday Mass
We experienced some severe audio trouble while taping this Mass. The music/songs are mostly inaudible. Voices are very difficult to hear. If you wish to try it, you are welcome to watch. If it is too hard to get through, we offer you the Diocesan Mass link down below.

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.
