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.

OPTIONS FOR GIVING TO THE PARISH

Click here to donate today.

The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland has provided two additional ways for parishioners to give to the parish during this difficult time. As you know we have two ways already. Besides your regular offertory envelopes, there are a number of people who regularly give to the parish through our online giving program, also known as the electronic funds transfer. The funds are transferred directly from your savings/checking account at your bank to the parish. Information and signup for that program can be seen in the bulletin, on our Website (just scroll down this page), or you can contact our parish office at 216.433.1440 x21 and speak with Trish.

The two additional ways are as follows:

First, the diocese has a new link that allows you to make an online donation with a credit card. This is a secure link, which is setup by the Catholic Community Foundation. All monies will be directed to our parish. To make your online donation select our parish name, Mary Queen of the Apostles in Brook Park, from the drop down menu. It is very simple to use. This option can be used on a one-time basis, weekly, monthly, or whatever you want. Your generosity is appreciated now, more than ever. To choose this method of an on-line donation with a credit card, you can Click HERE

Secondly, you may wish to leave the parish in your will. To learn more about how to create a permanent legacy of lasting support for the work of the parish and the Diocese of Cleveland, please contact Mary Lou Ozimek of the Catholic Community Foundation at 216.696.6525, x4070. Thank you!

From the Pastor's Desk

Without God we can do nothing. In a culture that seems to have an answer for everything, many people believe they can go through life without God. God wants our hearts. Jesus, the second Person of the Blessed Trinity entered time and space some two thousand years ago in the womb of the Virgin Mary because of His great love for us. He came to save us from sin and eternal death. But many people in our world and nation today seem to flout God’s laws. Sin has plagued mankind since the time of Adam and Eve. Sin brings judgment as we hear throughout the Bible. It seems at times that our nation is rushing toward destruction and only God can save us from this terrible situation. We need to return to our heavenly Father. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. With the help of Jesus and through the power of the Holy Spirit, we can stand up for righteousness, goodness, and truth. We must fight against evil, sin, and immorality. So do what you can. Build strong families. Tell others about your faith. Do the right thing. Vote for politicians who promote moral values. Don’t allow our society and nation to implode. Be a soldier for Christ! 

May I suggest that the homebound of our parish pray for these intentions during October for their Ministry of Praise and Mercy: For our government leaders; for police, firefighters, and first responders; for all healthcare workers.

Have a good week!

Fr. Jim

FORMED.ORG - Picks of the Week:

“THERESE” A pampered child from a middle-class 19th century French family, Therese Martin journeys to Rome to beg Pope Leo XIII for permission to enter the Carmelite monastery at the unheard-of-age of 15. Once admitted, she experiences the joys and rigors of monastic life and makes the surprising yet simple discovery that holiness can be achieved by small acts of love and compassion – a spiritual path she calls her “Little Way.”
