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.

A BIBLICAL WALK WITH THE BLESSED MOTHER
The Prayer Shawl Ministry combines the love of knitting and crocheting with compassion for those in need o comfort
and healing. The shawl maker prays for whomever is to receive the shawl. All of our shawls receive a final blessing by
the group. Shawl makers meet once a month (see the bulletin for dates) or can be involved at home. In the words of
Jane Bristow, who began this ministry, “(Shawls) wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace...shelter. Those who have
received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to fly above their troubles.” Contributions for
yarn are also greatly appreciated. If you would like to request a prayer shawl for a member of your family or for a
friend, please call the Parish Office at 216.289.0770
SJOC PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
Catholics across thecountry will be celebrating Priesthood Sunday onOctober 26th. It is a day
set aside to celebrate theimportance of the gift of priesthood in the life of theChurch. It is a
time for us to reflect on the ministrythat our priests share with us when we gather at theTable
of the Lord—when we call in our times ofneed. Consider sharing a personal note or card of
thanks. Together we pray that many of our youngpeople will be inspired by the ministry and
witnessof our priests. May their hearts be open to hearingand responding to God’s call in
their lives.More information can be found at clevelandcatholicpriesthood.com
The Feast of All Souls is a special time to commemorate those who have passed from this
earth to their eternal rest. We wish to remember in a special way those who we, the parish of
St. John of the Cross, have lost in the past year. We will celebrate the Feast of All Souls at the
4 p.m. Mass on November 1, 2014, by offering our prayers in a special way to parishioners
who have died this year. We would also like to dedicate our prayers to the special loved ones
our parishioners have lost this year that may not be part of our community. To do so, we plan to
create a photo collage and prayer table in the gathering area. If you have lost someone special
since last November and would like to include them, please send us a photo to add to the
remembrance. You can email a photo, or drop off a copy at the office. Note: please do not give
us photos that need to be returned. We ask that you send the photos by Monday, October 27th
so that we have time to compile them.

One of the many wonderful activities happening here at Saint John of the Cross is the Cleveland chapter eastside
sewing group of the Christ Child Society. Once a month Saint John of the Cross Parish along with members Joann
Volk, Connie Cinkole and Andrea Dean host ladies from various eastside parishes who sew the receiving blankets
that go in the layettes. These layettes then go to needy newborns through hospitals and social service organizations.
The Cleveland chapter of the Christ Child Society’s mission is to assist needy children in the name of the Christ Child.
The layette program is included with the school uniform program, children’s coat program, my stuff program (school
supplies toiletries, and sweat suits for homeless children), library program, and grandmother program where members
babysit. In 2016 the Cleveland chapter will be 100 years old. For more information please contact Andrea Dean at
