Through the hard work of our parishioners and friends, our former coat room in the Parish Hall has been transformed into a lovingly organized "Giving Library" (as opposed to a Lending Library) where donors can leave books and readers can choose books to take home.
We are all saddened by the death of Sr. Mary Beth Gray's mother, Kathleen, on Wednesday, May 25. Our prayers are with Sr. Mary Beth and her entire family.
Details about the wake and funeral for Mrs. Gray can be found in the Cleveland Plain Dealer at this link: http://obits.cleveland.com/obituaries/cleveland/obituary.aspx?n=kathleen...
