The 2021 Catholic Charities Annual Appeal has begun.
Catholic Charities' mission for over 100 years has been to provide help, create hope, and serve all people of every race and religion throughout the eight counties in the Diocese of Cleveland.
This appeal helps Catholic Charities provide funds for our weekly Hunger Center meals program at St. Edward.
To make your donation online, click here.
You can now watch all scheduled Masses (weekend and weekday) from either our Facebook Page or here on our website.
Weekend and Weekday Masses have resumed to the normal schedule.
The changes we have made ensure safety for everyone, while maintaining the dignity of our worship. A copy of the changes were mailed to all registered families in May. You can also read the document here.
We look forward to when everyone is comfortable in returning to in-person worship. In the meantime, we continue to post our weekly homilies on our website. The Ohio bishops have extended the dispensation from attending Mass for the time being. "As Catholics, in every Sunday Mass we celebrate the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord. The Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. In this moment, we are experiencing in a unique way the passion of our Lord as this pandemic prevents us from gathering for the Sunday Eucharist. In this very difficult time, we encourage the faithful to turn to the Church’s treasury of prayer. Sunday remains a holy day, and we encourage the faithful to pray using the rich resources of our faith, including praying as a family or individually the rosary, divine mercy chaplet, the Liturgy of the Hours, stations of the cross, etc. We also urge you to participate in prayer by way of radio broadcast or televised or livestreamed Mass and make a spiritual communion."
All groups and functions of St. Edward Parish are allowed to restart as they are able. The Wednesday Hunger Center meals will continue as Take-out only
We will continue to monitor developments and make adjustments as necessary.
Most of all, during this time, we need to pray. The following prayer (author unknown) expresses our trust during this time:
Our Father, we trustingly pray to you, asking that the Coronavirus may do no more harm, that the epidemic may be swiftly gotten under control, and that you restore the health of those affected and peace to the places where the virus has arrived.
Welcome into your kingdom the people who have died from this illness, and comfort their families.
Sustain and protect the healthcare personnel who are fighting it, and inspire and bless those working to control it.
Lord Jesus, healer of our bodies and souls, we feel helpless in the face of this international health emergency, but we trust in You.
Give us peace and health. Mother Mary, protect us and continue to take care of us, and lead us through your love to your Son, Jesus. Amen
