Pastors Thoughts

When I was growing up my grandmother always said that the three most important words in the English language were please, thank you, and I’m sorry. Small words with a big impact. On Sunday February 16th at 1:00 pm we would to say thank you to all of our volunteers by offering a dinner at Sokolowiski’s. We cordially invite all who volunteer in our parish parish ministers (Eucharistic ministers, servers, lector’s, music ministry etc); our Parish Council; Finance Council; Festival Volunteers; Festival Committee; Golden Agers; Ladies Guild; decorating crew; and anyone else I may have forgot (LOL). This year we have two choices for dinner Chicken Mozzarella or Stuffed Cabbage. You must make a reservation to attend, either by phone (216 781 9095 X 2 for Joe Sutowski if not available, leave your Name, phoe number, number attending, and your dinner choice(s). You may also email us at On behalf of myself, Joe Sutowski, Sam Meland, and Ruth Werner our bookkeeper, we say THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING OUR PARISH WHAT IT IS A FAMILY OF FAITH!

Congratulations to Paul & Roseanne Ewazen as they celebrate their 68th Wedding Anniversary.


A little girl was sitting on her grandfather’s lap as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek.She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again. Finally she spoke up, “Grandpa, did God make you?” “Yes sweetheart,” he answered, “God made me a long time ago” “Oh,” she paused, “Grandpa, did make me too?” “Yes, indeed, honey,” he said, “God made you just a little while ago.” Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, “God’s getting better at it, isn’t he?”


God has seen your tears and heard your prayers. You are meant to walk this journey of grief alone. Please join us in our friendly, safe, and comforting groups that meet at 3:00 p.m. On the 3rd Sunday of each month in our cemetery office locations throughout the Diocese. Find comfort, enlightenment, fellowship. Next meeting is February 16. Topic: „Grief and Lent: Traveling Hand in Hand”. For more details, visit or contact Rhonda at or 216 9304866.
