LENTEN MUSICAL MEDITATION

God Has Chosen Me (Bernadette Farrell)


For our Lenten music this week, we have a combination of live recording and virtual choir, featuring our cantor, handbells, and Archangel Choir. This classic Bernadette Farrell song can remind us that, even in a pandemic, we are called to bring good news to others, especially those most in need.

Parish and Diocesan News and Reminders:
Serving, Giving, Growing

 

Bishop's Appeal and Bishop Bonnar's First Pastoral Letter


Two-thirds of this Lenten appeal goes to the work of Catholic Charities, and the remainder supports diocesan ministries that our parish relies on. With the pandemic these ministries have become even more critical, and especially the needs of Catholic Charities, which is serving more and more people.

Considering this great need, the diocese has set an ambitious goal of $4 million, and our parish goal is $195,800. Our parish has been a leader in this campaign in the past, and we are asked to lead again this year. 

Bishop David Bonnar has also released his first pastoral letter,Testify to the Light.  In it, Bishop Bonnar offers encouragement to the diocesan Church during this pandemic, invites us to make prayer a priority, and suggests an exciting path forward for our diocesan Church.

Church Statements on Vaccines


Father Benson has received his first vaccination dose, and (along with Pope Francis and the U.S. Bishops) is encouraging parishioners to as well, when it becomes available to you. The Ohio Bishops have written that the currently available Moderna and Pfizer vaccines can be taken "without moral reservations" and U.S. Bishops write that receiving vaccines “ought to be understood as an act of charity toward the other members of our community.” Our bishops encourage Catholics to remain vigiliant about further vaccine development and just distribution, upholding the sanctity of human life and concern for the most vulnerable.
