ATTENTION: ALL CANTORS AND CHOIR MEMBERS
There will be a meeting for all cantors and choir members on Wednesday, August 4 at 6:30 PM in the Parish Hall.
ENJOY A MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL GAME
It’s Major League Baseball time - Monday evening, August 9 with the Cincinnati Reds versus the Cleveland Indians. Join the Men’s Club for a relaxing and comfortable trip to Progressive Field for a night of exciting baseball. Because of COVID -19 we have a very limited number of tickets for sale. This year is not a bus trip—it’s a “you drive trip”. The game ticket is for great mezzanine seating at the field and is just $22.00. (Check payable to “Saint Michael’s Men’s Club).
For more information and your reservation please call Chuck Reinfer at 330-507-3308.
SAINT MICHAEL GARDEN GUILD
On Wednesday, August 25, the Garden Guild will be touring Redex Industries in Salem (Udder Smooth Hand Cream). The group will gather in the south parking lot and leave at 10:15 sharp. A map to the premises will be provided. Lunch will follow the 11:00 AM tour. Guests are welcome. More information will follow at a later date.
BIBLE STUDY GROUP
Are you interested in being part of a once a month Bible Study Group? A group of Saint Michael parishioners meet monthly at the home of a fellow parishioner usually in the early afternoon, to discuss and learn about the Bible. When we meet in July and August, we will be looking at the Gospel of Saint John. If interested, contact Barb Spencer (330-503-4756) for more information and meeting date.
JOIN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
RCIA is the program which brings non-Catholic adults into the Catholic Church. If you are, or if you know someone who wants to become Catholic, now is the time! RCIA is open to those baptized in other Christian traditions, as well as those who have never been baptized. It is also open to those who were baptized in the Catholic Church but never had any religious education, and never made their first communion. For more information, please call Maureen Hall (330-533-6839) or email email@example.com.
GENERATIONS OF FAITH
We are extending our digital program and will continue to assess the situation to determine when we will be able to gather together again. For more information, please contact Marcy Fessler (330) 533-6839 or email
We are scheduling Masses for 2021. We are requesting that instead of coming in to schedule your Masses, please call the parish office (330-533-6839) to schedule, and then just mail in a check. You are permitted up to 6 masses per year per deceased person. Because the number of Saturday and Sunday Masses available for intention is somewhat limited, it is necessary to limit those Masses to 1 per year per deceased person. Weekday Mass intention will be limited to 5 Masses per year per deceased person. The Mass offering is $10.00.
Our parish will be joining parishes throughout the Diocese of Youngstown in asking every Catholic family to support the 2021 Annual Bishop’s Appeal. The Appeal is the primary funding source for Catholic Charities in the six counties of our diocese. Especially as we continue to weather the effects of the pandemic, there has been an increase in the number of needy persons coming to Catholic Charities for help, and they depend on our support of the Bishop’s Appeal. The Bishop’s Appeal also helps to support our diocesan ministries including seminarian formation and the Office of Vocations, the Office of Catholic Schools, religious Education, Youth and Young Adult Ministries, and the Catholic Television Network of Youngstown (CTNY). Our parish was given an Appeal goal of $84,500 to contribute towards the diocesan goal of $4 million. Bishop Bonnar is counting on our support of the 2021 Bishop’s Appeal to reach our goal. Thank you to those members of our parish who responded to the Appeal. Please prayerfully consider how you can best respond when asked to make a commitment.
(Many have been temporarily suspended until further notice. Check with your group for updates.)
GENERATIONS OF FAITH
Register today for a year of learning, discovering, and growing in our faith and love of Jesus together. To learn more about our program please call the parish office (330-533-6839) or click HERE. Even if you do not have a child currently in our program, we still welcome you to participate.
This ministry outreach, run by parish volunteers, has as its main purpose to build community and to strengthen friendships while enjoying a meal together. There is no charge. The meal is meant for anyone who would like to come, both parishioners of the parish and anyone else from the larger geographical area. For example, if someone lives alone, it’s an opportunity to “meet new people.” For others, it’s a social supper out. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, no meals are scheduled at this time.
For information on how to volunteer call Barb Spencer (330-503-4756). Read more HERE.
As one of our liturgy songs goes: “All are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome in this place!”
RECITATION OF THE ROSARY
A group gathers in the pews near the Blessed Mother’s altar for an oral recitation of the rosary the 1st Saturday of the month at 3:45 PM. Please call Mary Ann Camardo (330-2286-3432) for more information.
Please join us on Tuesday mornings (unless there is a funeral) at 11:00 AM in the church to say the Patriotic Rosary. For more information call Kate Pavlich (330-533-24320. Read more HERE.
CANCER SUPPORT GROUP
The Cancer Support Group meets the first Tuesday of each month from 7:00 to 8:30 PM in the Family Life Center. The group is open to anyone whose life has been touched by cancer. Please contact Mary Witkowski (330-533-61400 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
OPEN GYM FOR WALKING
The Family Life Center Gymnasium is now open four days a week: Monday through Thursday, from 9:30 to 11:30 AM. Parishioners are invited to come and walk for healthy exercise and companionship. Walkers are requested to stop in the open meeting room across from the restrooms to store their coats and change from outdoor boots and shoes to indoor athletic or walking shoes—required to protect the FLC floor. Now there is no need to go to the mall to exercise. This is a great opportunity right here at home to walk your way to a healthy lifestyle. Please enter through the side door.
