Taizé Prayer on Facebook
Live stream on Facebook THIS Sunday, April 5 at 8 pm
Even though we can’t join together in person enjoy this prayer on Facebook. Taizé Prayer is a distinctive style of meditative prayer developed by an ecumenical community of monks in rural France. This quiet, moving reflective prayer combines elements of the Church's traditional Liturgy of the Hours with elements of contemplative meditation. A typical Taizé prayer service incorporates periods of silence with meditative readings from Scripture, prayers of praise and intercession, and the frequent repetition of simple, contemporary chants.

Public Masses Suspended Through and Including Sunday May, 3
Today (April 2, 2020) Governor Mike DeWine extended the executive “Stay at Home Order” to continue to curb the spread of the Coronavirus in the State of Ohio. Out of deep concern for the common good, as well as the physical and spiritual well-being of all the people of Ohio, the Catholic Bishops of Ohio have agreed once again to cooperate with the governor’s direction.
To that end, the Catholic Bishops of Ohio extend the temporary suspension of all publicly celebrated Masses/liturgies at least through and including Sunday May 3rd. The Bishops of Ohio dispense the Catholic faithful who reside in their respective dioceses and all other Catholics currently in Ohio from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass during this time period.
This decision has not been taken lightly and, as your bishops, together with you, we recognize the sacrifice we are called to make by being physically distanced from the Holy Eucharist and from one another.
Trusting in the graces flowing from the celebration of the passion, death and resurrection of Our Lord, we remain mindful of the hope that does not disappoint. As your bishops, we continue to encourage you to keep holy the Lord’s Day by participating in Sunday Mass by way of televised, live-streamed, or radio broadcast options and making a spiritual communion. Keeping in mind the gift of plenary indulgences offered to us by the Church, we encourage all the faithful to turn to the Church’s treasury of prayer, praying as a family or individually the rosary, divine mercy chaplet, the Liturgy of the Hours and Stations of the Cross, etc.
Please join us in praying for all who are suffering from the Coronavirus, for all health care workers and first responders, and for an easing of the anxiety and tension caused by this pandemic. Relying on the Motherly care of Our Lady, Health of the Sick, we unite our sufferings to those of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and we trust in the glorious hope of His resurrection.
The Roman Catholic Bishops of Ohio
Though public Masses have been suspended through Easter, Father Estabrook will continue to offer private masses for all of the intentions in our Mass intention book and for the health of our parish family, friends, and alumni.

Lower Church Proposed Renovations
In the early days of our Parish, Mass was held in the basement of the church while the upstairs was still under construction. In the 1950's weekly Sunday Mass attendees were so great in number that services were held simultaneously in both the upstairs and the downstairs church .
Our Parish needs evolved over the years and the basement became a catch-all for storage. You would find Christmas decorations and church pews, statutes and candlesticks, pieces and parts from the Church festivals and oddities of all kinds.
In the 1980's a section of the basement was partitioned off to store items for our Food Pantry.
Recently crews have been working to eliminate the clutter , organize the valuables and reclaim the basement for usable space.
The following is the Final Rendering of the renovations planned for the lower church. You will be hearing more on this project and how it is being funded, in the near future.
