Welcome to Nativity of the Lord

Assumption of Mary

FRIDAY, AUGUST 15 is the Holyday of the Assumption of Mary This doctrine of faith is part of our Church from the earliest days, but was only defined in 1950. In the middle of a century of murder, when massive atrocities were committed against bodies, God’s truth reminds us of the sacredness of our bodies and that our bodies are destined for eternal glory. We need to gather at Mass, to pray that this truth can be universally proclaimed and that our brothers and sisters who are now being violated may be delivered from harm. Masses are on Thursday: 5:30PM and Friday: 7:00AM and 7:00PM.

CONFIRMATION

Bishop Richard G. Lennon will be with us as we celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, August 23, 2014 during the 4:30PM Mass.
Confirmation class covering chapter 8, rehearsal, and picnic will be Thursday, August 21, beginning at 6:30PM. All candidates and sponsors must attend rehearsal. Read and prepare chapter 8 for class. Please call Karen @ 330-699-5086 with any questions or if you need more information.

Letter from Father Dave

This past week, a check for $4,961.00 was received by our parish from the “Rooted in Faith” funds. Since that campaign by our diocese was started, we have received $129,806.00; all of this has been put into savings for the completion of our buildings. In 1994, we began a savings campaign to put a proper organ in our church, to build a rectory, to improve our hall, to provide adequate work space for staff, and to make everything accessible. With these savings and the “Rooted in Faith” funds, we are now able to complete our capital projects. I am hoping that is my last major construction project and that all of us will have provided an excellent infrastructure for the next generation to evangelize this area. The beauty of our church is a testimony to the loving sacrifices of the founding generation. It will cost about $1,400,000 to complete this project. We have most of that in savings. There has been much input about this from the staff, the Pastoral Council, the Finance Council, and the Building Committee. You should see the beginning of this soon, and detailed information will be given to you in the near future. Your continued use of the Building Fund envelopes and your “Rooted in Faith” gifts will be very helpful. If anyone has a particular memorial gift to be made, please contact me. I really appreciate the wonderful blessings I have received by being part of this parish.
