Being called to live in Christian community, we care for one another through the many ups and downs that life brings.  Birthdays, anniversaries, illness, a new baby, aging parents, a new home, or a death in the family are all opportunities to practice a life of love and service.  Members of the Pastoral Care and Fellowship Committee send cards, deliver meals, offer transportation, run errands, and deliver flowers from the altar.  The parish priest visits those in hospital or who are confined to their homes, taking time to listen, pray, and share communion with them.

We have a Grief Group led by Kathy Pender that meets twice a month on Tuesdays via Zoom.  Contact the office if you would like to join, 440-423-4451.

  • There are many kinds of loss such as the loss of a loved one, the loss of health, the loss of a relationship or of a job, or the letting go of a long-held dream. Dealing with a significant loss can be one of the most difficult times in a person’s lifetime.
  • Loss is an inevitable part of life and grief is a natural part of the healing process. Each person’s experience of loss will have subtle nuances that will make it unlike any other loss, but what is common to all grief responses are the intense heart centered emotions. Emotions that others will also have felt, endured, and survived.
  • In these sessions, you will have the opportunity to learn about different kinds of loss, different grief responses, the effects of loss and grief, and to learn about grief as a process of healing. Please join us and feel free to bring a friend.  All are welcome.

We also have a dedicated group of Stephen Ministers.

Caring for one another also means having fun together.  The men of our parish cook up a fantastic pancake breakfast for the parish on the Sunday before Shrove Tuesday.
