Parking is available in the Parish lots on Lawn Avenue & West 65 Street, but much more space is available at the Zone Recreation Center, just one block south of the Church at West 65 and Lorain. The principal celebrant this year is Fr. Dan Begin, Associate at Communion of Saints Parish (Cleveland Heights/Cleveland), who was Pastor of St. Cecelia's for 30 years before it was closed last year. Fr. Begin is the younger brother of our Pastor.

Praying with St. Ignatius

ACT TODAY: If you have considered registering for the Praying With St. Ignatius parish retreat starting January 16th and have not yet, registrations are being accepted today.

A person who experienced this retreat last year said it was “life changing … the kind of change that happens through Grace … I experienced a renewed and deepened relationship with Christ … I gained an awareness for God in everyday life … and grew from memorized prayer said by heart to praying from the heart with joy and awareness....”

Join us to experience this prayerful transformation yourself!
