St. Colman Day 2012 on Saturday, November 3, was a glorious celebration of those who built our city and our church. Fifteen men representing the building trades were chosen to be honored by their fellow members for their exemplary service to their unions and to the community. Loree Soggs, Executive Secretary of the Cleveland Building and Construction Trades Council, was honored for his service to all trades women and men. The beautiful Mass was celebrated by Fr. Bob Begin and Fr. Jim O'Donnell.
....the three winners of our St. Colman Day Raffle! First Prize went to Sean Coyne, Second Prize to Susan Mathias and Third Prize to the Millwrights and Piledrivers Local 1090, who decided to return their $1000 prize to the Parish. Thank you Local 1090!
The Mass was beautiful and the honorees representing 15 trade unions were thrilled and their families so very proud. Fr. Jim O'Donnell's homily was beautiful and so was the Church filled with over 800 people!
