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
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
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.
On Sunday November 23rd at 12:30 pm, the families of SSR&W and SJOC parishes will be making Advent Wreaths. If you are pruning your evergreens, please wait until the weekend of November 15-16.

If you want to participate in this Advent Project, a registration form will be included in the Parish Bulletin the weekend of October 25-26. Please look for it!
Saturday, December 6th at 5:00pm in the School Gym. Please plan to come

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.
