LITURGICAL TRIBUTE FUND
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.

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

ANNUAL CHRISTMAS DINNER
Saturday, December 6th at 5:00pm in the School Gym. Please plan to come and re-connect with fellow parishioners. Tickets are $10.00, available at the Parish Office.
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
440 944-1157.
