We are the people of Mary Queen of the Apostles Parish, in Brook Park, Ohio, dedicated to following the example of our Lord, Jesus Christ, through the Scriptures and Traditions of the Roman Catholic Church. We gather together to celebrate, to share, and to be nourished by the Eucharist. We promote religious education, spiritual growth and moral values by being faithful to the teachings of Jesus Christ. To show our love for God and one another, we live our lives committed to the dignity and salvation of each person, and we live our faith through compassion and service to those in need.

CLERGY'S MESSAGE

Annual Church Picnic

Our picnic will be held on Sunday, July 28, 12N-4PM on the parish grounds.

PARISH PICNIC BASKET RAFFLE We are excited once again to host our Parish Picnic! Last year’s return of the basket raffle was a huge hit! We need your help to make it a success! We’re in need of NEW items which will be used to assemble themed raffle baskets. No donation is too small!  Donations can be dropped off during normal business hours, M-F, 8:30AM-3PM or in one of the containers in the church vestibule. (Monetary donations will gladly be accepted and will be used to supplement the baskets with items not received. Checks should be made to Mary Queen of the Apostles.) Deadline to donate is the weekend of July 6/7.  Contact Debbie Zelinski or Trish Solon at 216.433.1440 x10 or x21 or via email tsolon@mqabrookpark.org, with questions. Thank you!

 

STREAMING

LIVE-STREAMING OF MASSES We will stream and upload the 8AM Masses on Monday and Tuesday mornings to enable our homebound to connect with the parish. For the rest of the week, EWTN telecasts a number of daily Masses, and our Cathedral streams its weekday Masses at 12N. On Sundays, besides the Masses on EWTN, Channel 43 (WUAB-TV) broadcasts two Masses: 8AM and 10AM from our Cathedral. We realize this will be an inconvenience to some folks, but we tried to reach a compromise based on our recent survey. Initially, one possibility was to cut the streaming entirely but we will not do that.

 

Here's the link to "Q-Tube":

We will also livestream these Masses on our parish Facebook page. You can view the video and other information on this page without being a Facebook member which you can access directly from our parish website mqabrookpark.org or Facebook:

About an hour after Mass concludes, the video will be uploaded to Q-Tube (our parish's YouTube channel). which you can access directly from our parish website: mqabrookpark.org or at "Q-tube" as shown above.

From the Pastor's Desk

As we near the end of the year of the Holy Eucharist we are reminded of the great privilege that we have in receiving our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament whenever we come to Mass. Certainly the Eucharist is one of the greatest mysteries of our faith but we believe it because Jesus Himself said in the 6th chapter of the Gospel of St. John that He gives Himself to us as the Bread of life and whoever feeds on His Body and drinks His Blood will have eternal life. He said the words of the institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper as recorded in the Gospels and by St. Paul in his letter to the Corinthians. Let us continue to be grateful for His most holy gift and to receive the Eucharist, in which Jesus is truly and really present to us in a miraculous way, with great reverence and devotion.

As I mentioned in the Easter Sunday bulletin, I will be moving to Divine Word Parish on July 1 in Kirtland. I kindly ask that you refrain from giving me items of any kind as I am down-sizing and have been giving away clothing, pictures, statues, etc., to the Christ Child Society, family members and to Fr. Rob for Audrey’s Outreach and the immigrant and refugee collections. I am unable to bring any more items than those I already have set aside for my new living quarters.

May I suggest the following three prayer intentions to our shut-ins who are involved in the Ministry of Praise and Mercy: For the newly ordained permanent deacons and priest of our diocese; for a safe summer for the children of our parish and for the safety of all who are traveling over the summer months; and for fine weather, productive land, and for the farmers who grow our food.

Fr. Jim

THE THREE SECRETS TO SHARING THE FAITH BY TRENT HORN Want to tell others about your Catholic Faith, but don't how where to start? Afraid you're not smart enough, knowledgeable enough, or outgoing enough? Don't worry, says Catholic Answers apologist Trent Horn. With a few simple tips and a little practice, anyone can be an effective apostle and evangelist. In The Three Secrets to Sharing the Faith, Horn draws on his long experience dialoguing about religion and life issues (with people ranging from politely curious to downright hostile) to identify for you the most important steps to initiating such discussions – and making them fruitful.

SACRIFICE | THE CATHOLIC PARENT | EPISODE 4 It's an understatement to say marriage demands a lot. Family life and raising children demand even more. Isn't fulfilling those duties enough? Why does the Church teach that we should fast, and what does that mean practically? In this episode, Sr. Rachel Marie discusses these questions alongside the real-life witness of Catholic families. Turning to the story of St. Gianna Beretta Molla will leave you with the confidence needed to practice fasting as a family.

THE BALLAD OF BARNABUS BUNDLE | BENJAMIN CELLO | EPISODE 1 When Aunt Rhody loses Old Gray Goose and her potato crop too, Benjamin Cello breaks into his savings to help his friend in her time of need. Along the way, Aunt Rhody recalls the tragic tale of greedy Barnabus Bundle who tore down his barns to build bigger ones.
