There will also be a section in memory of our beloved deceased parishioners.  Order forms will be available by March 1st.  For additional information please call or text Mary Sinowski at (330)540-4519 .

We are also asking parishioners for any pictures from 1970 to present of our church to put in the commemorative book.  Any questions, call Paula Slemons.


PICTURES UPDATE:   Thank you to all parishioners who have had their pictures taken for our 50th Anniversary Commemorative Book.  We know some were unable to meet these dates; therefore, we will be planning another sitting after Easter.  We truly hope to have all parish families represented in our book. Any questions please see Father Michael or call Paula Slemons.
