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.

Annual Service Day. You will have an opportunity to volunteer at one of several locations throughout the Cleveland
area including: Joseph’s Home, Moriah House, Ronald McDonald House, Greater Cleveland Food Bank, Waterford
Assisted Living and our own St. John of the Cross Parish. The times for each location vary throughout the day. All
volunteering will end by 3pm so we can come together and celebrate Mass at 4pm followed by dinner. Signup sheets
will be available in next week’s bulletin and the gathering space. For questions or more information, please call the
Parish Office. By the work of our hands, together as a parish we can show what a difference a day can make!
MEMORIAL DAY MASS: Join us on Monday, May 25th for a
special Memorial Day Mass at 9:30am. Let us remember those who
have given so much for us and pray for the families who mourn their loss.
The Patriotic Rosary will be prayed immediately following the Memorial Day Mass, May

nation, our veterans, and the armed forces. In honor and memory of the many who have
served our country, in times of war and times of peace, let us sing and give praise to God
and our Mother, Mary in a special way.
OUTDOOR MASS AT SHRINE
Beginning May 31st through September 6th there will be a 7:45am Mass at the
Outdoor Shrine (weather-permitting). If the weather is inclement, the 7:45am will be
held in the Church. The Sunday 9:00am and 11:00am Masses will be as usual.
After Easter Sunday, Christmas is the
second-greatest feast in the Christian liturgical
calendar, but Pentecost Sunday is not far behind.
Coming 50 days after Easter and ten days after the
Ascension of Our Lord, Pentecost marks the descent
of the Holy Spirit on the apostles. For that reason, it is
often called the "the birthday of the Church."
