One of the most important things that we do when someone close to us dies is to honor their memory. As a way to do that, we have started the Saint John of the Cross liturgical Tribute Fund. All money that is donated to this fund in memory of a love one or friend will be used to purchase items utilized in our worship and help us to do all that we can to assure that we have what we need to worship well.

Looking for ways to grow closer to Our Lord's Mother through prayer and service to others?
If you are, you may want to consider membership in the Legion of Mary. The Legion is the largest apostolic
organization of lay persons in the Catholic Church. Members of the Legion at St. John of the Cross meet once a week on Tuesdays at 7:00pm for about one hour and each meeting begins with a Rosary. Legionaries will then have a weekly assignment. These various assignments in which Legionaries generally work in pairs can involve
bringing our Lord in the Eucharist to the homebound and those in nursing homes as well as visiting and praying with patients in hospitals. If interested please call Mr. Frank Buda at 440.975.0531.
Mercy Among Us:
We have talked a lot about mercy, and about the different ways to practice and live it. But sometimes the best lesson is to see mercy in action. Our parish has embraced merciful works for quite some time, in many different ways. People of all ages at St. John of the Cross offer their compassion and love in so many ways.
Here are just a few examples:

SJOC Girl Scouts
You may have noticed our Girl Scouts in the gathering area the last few weekends. These girls have collected kid-friendly foods to help support Euclid Hunger Center’s programs for feeding children who otherwise would have very few meals. And they also offered us a Donut Sunday in gratitude for our support of their efforts. This is feeding the hungry at its finest – with compassion and grateful hearts! Behind the scenes, these girls are also helping the
parish in any way they can - cleaning up the grounds, offering a helping hand, and sharing their beautiful smiles! Their eagerness to be the face of Christ is a wonderful example for all of us!

Second Blessings Ministry
It is May, and we are now seeing the Second Blessings Ministry begin their preparations for the 3rd Annual Second Blessings Rummage Sale in September. But did you know that this ministry continues to be the face of Mercy all year long? Their work is about much more than the sale itself. This group, many parishioners of all ages, seeks to honor our possessions and help meet the needs of the community in a way filled with dignity and respect. And Second Blessings Ministry offers many ways for people to share their blessings – people help in a way that uses their talents and suits their personal situation. The ministry comforts the afflicted, clothes the naked, visits the sick, and more. It is a place of friendship and love, of listening and sharing the load. Through this ministry, people come together and work together to build up the community. Second Blessings is indeed a multitude of blessings to our parish community!
About The Jubilee
It’s Coming…our 3rd Annual Second Blessings Rummage Sale will be held on September 24th and 25th this year. What this means is we need YOU! We need you to please remember Second Blessings when you begin your spring cleaning. You can do-nate your gently used treasures beginning May 14th and know that your past treasures can be a real gift to someone. Every Saturday from now until August there will be someone to accept your donations at the South doors of the Parish Community Center from 9am until 1 pm. If you would like to drop off your items during the week please drive to the first mobile unit behind the Parish Center and place them inside the building between the hours of 9am until 4pm. A receipt for your donation can be picked up in the Parish Office during office hours. We also need your help. If you can donate 1 hour or several hours to help sort, organize and price items that would help ensure another successful event. For more information please email Carla Colo;

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ is also known as the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, which translates from Latin to "Body of Christ." This feast originated in France in the midthirteenth century and was extended to the whole Church by Pope Urban IV in 1264. This feast is celebrated on the Thursday following the Trinity Sunday or, as in the USA, on the Sunday following that feast.
