January 21, 2024

Lent is approaching, and with it our Fabulous Fish Fries. Already, people are hard at work making the various pirohy and fillings. I know that any assistance given to these fine people would be most welcome. Pirohy are made Monday and Wednesday mornings from 8:00a.m. till about 1:00p.m. Help is also needed for the Fridays in Lent when the Fish fries will be held. Just come to the kitchen ready to lend a hand. We sincerely thank all those who came to help last Monday and Wednesday. It's the real "shot in the arm" that we need. Keep up the good work!!!

Let us not forget to pray for the millions of unborn babies whose lives are lost as a result of abortion and that all life will be respected from conception to natural death, especially in our state of Ohio. Each First Saturday of the month, there is a Mass and Rosary for Life at St. Andrew Abbey, 2900 Martin Luther King Dr. Please remember that these are people who cannot speak for themselves and are utterly defenseless. If we will not speak on their behalf, who will?

We are in need of people to step up and become lectors and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. The various ministries enhance the experience of the Mass and it is a good way to serve the parish community. Please contact me to sign up to take part in these important roles in the Liturgy. 

This Wednesday evening at 7:00 I will be having a 2-part series on the Mass. Have you ever wondered what the gestures and words that we use at Mass mean? Then come and see! January 24 centers on the Liturgy of the Word, and January 31 on the Liturgy of the Eucharist. All are welcome.
