A Letter From Father Kropac

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

On November 6th, Fr. Kropac distributed a very important letter to our parishioners.  A copy of that letter can be found at this link along with hard copies available in the back of church.

Also, on November 12th, Bishop Perez published a letter on the protection of children.  A link to that letter on the Diocese of Cleveland website is provided below.

Christmas Story Run Volunteers Needed

Volunteer Opportunities Available!

My name is Leeann Whetstone and I am the Volunteer Coordinator for the

6th Annual running of A Christmas Story 5k/10k Run

taking place December 1, 2018.

We are looking for volunteers to help us out with the continued success and growth of A Christmas Story Run. Last year we saw added growth and we had close to 6,500 runners total.
Are you a fan of the movie A Christmas Story?  We would love for you to participate in all the activities and fun by volunteering for A Christmas Story 5K/10K Run!  We have several different opportunities available, so you can tailor it to your interests. All our volunteers will get their very own limited-edition tee-shirt.
All the proceeds earned from this run benefit A Christmas Story House Foundation; a non-profit foundation established to restore and maintain the neighborhood surrounding A Christmas Story House & Museum for future generations to experience and enjoy.
The foundation provides grants to projects that enhance and preserve the surrounding neighborhood.
To date, the Run has generated $389,500 for the Foundation.
