As we hope the pandemic is in its final stages, many are, or are considering, returning to their parishes. We invite you to watch this short video that reminds us there is hope on the horizon as we continue to grow our faith in God: https://vimeo.com/539331363/8c213f9bce . With all we’ve experienced during the pandemic, we’ve all missed a lot: Our friends, our family, and our parish communities. But the love of God and peace of Christ still burn brightly in our hearts.
As your pastor, I want to personally thank you for your past generous support for the mission of the Church through the Catholic Charities Annual Appeal.
Catholic Charities in Northeast Ohio, one of the oldest and largest Catholic Charities networks in the United States, is now serving more than 400,000 people each year through 150 services and 60 locations in the eight counties of our Diocese.
For more than 100 years, Catholic Charities has provided help and created hope for those who are most vulnerable and most in need, especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The theme for the 2021 Catholic Charities Annual Appeal—“Love Your Neighbor” — reminds us that we must love Jesus and our neighbors, as these are the greatest commandments given to us by our Lord. As missionary disciples, we work together to respond to all of our neighbors in need throughout Northeast Ohio.
Giving has a profound meaning for us as Catholics. We understand the importance of giving in return to the Lord for all He has given us. Your financial gift to this Appeal will make a real and lasting difference to men, women, and children who are in great need.
On behalf of Bishop Malesic and myself, but most especially on behalf of the people served by Catholic Charities – those who will benefit from your contributions - I thank you for your gift to the Catholic Charities Annual Appeal.
Rev. Stanley J. Klasinski
