The 2020 Catholic Charities Annual Appeal is underway with the Parish In-Pew Appeal taking place in all parishes in the Diocese of Cleveland on the weekend of February 8-9. This is not a special collection; rather, the Catholic Charities Annual Appeal represents the chance for all Catholics to make a significant pledge, payable in installments, to Catholic Charities, Diocese of Cleveland. Acting as One Body in Christ, we can change faces of despair, loneliness, darkness and addiction into FACES OF HOPE.
#FacesofHope: Though We Are Many, We Are One In Christ. Your
financial gift will provide essential programs and services to people
throughout all eight counties of the Diocese of Cleveland. On behalf of
those who are hungry and homeless, people who are alone and isolated,
and families that struggle with poverty…Thank You!

The St. Wendelin Choir presents a mini-concert featuring Christmas music from the Slovak tradition. Come listen and sing along. The concert starts at 3:30pm, followed by our 4:30 Vigil Mass for the Feast of the Holy Family.
The Vocation of St. Wendelin is a film that contrasts the rebirth of a once closed Cleveland Church (on its 5th anniversary of reopening) and an art installation created by sculptor Sandro Bonaiuto.
Over 5 years, the church has grown steadily while attracting new families. A statue was commissioned to mark this event and to provide a prayer garden for the community at large. The documentation of sculpting, casting, welding, polishing and final unveiling are shown. This video explores the importance of this work as an art installation and as a symbol of resurgence for a Cleveland Community.
