There is NO cost! We just need a name, address and phone number so we can get in touch with them! One of our work site committee members will call and make an appointment to see what supplies are needed and if we can do what it is they need done. If you know of anyone, if you yourself need assistance or you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us by contacting Kari at419-571-3803 before May 25.

"It is truly a mystery as how transubstantiation takes place as the consecration is prayed asking the Holy Spirit to make Himself present in the bread and wine. This gift gives us an act of faith that we believe, an act of love that we accept, and an act of hope, giving us life eternal."

A special message from Mrs. Rhodes: A new tool has been made available in memory of Mr. David Reihl, who continually made a difference for us with his generous giving of time, talent and treasure. I always advocate looking for ways to not incur more family expense. So now the question really becomes, "how can I maintain current giving levels and still increase giving?" That sounds like a trick question, but it is not. Please remember that donations start with us, but increases don't have to fall completely on the parishioners. Many employers offer company match for charitable donations. If you would like to learn more, please contact your employer's human resource department. They can guide you through the process.
