How Can We Serve You

Babysitting

FREE, professional babysitting is now available during 9:00 am Mass for children ages 1-3. We encourage all of our young families to bring their children to Mass and take advantage of these opportunities to enrich their faith and yours!

Parents are asked to come to the Lower Level of the Spiritual Center by 8:45 am to sign-in their child(ren) before Mass. Mary Beth Kalal is our staff babysitter. Mary Beth has completed the Cleveland Diocesan Virtus training and has served as a child care provider for young children for 20+ years.

Catholics Returning Home

Do you know someone who has been away from the Catholic Church for a while? Perhaps they are worshiping somewhere else and find something is missing. Are they searching for meaning or direction in their life? No matter how long they’ve been away, no matter what the reason, no matter what they have done or not done, invite them to come home and experience the abundant love and mercy of our Heavenly Father! Catholics Returning Home is a ministry of compassion and reconciliation for non-practicing Catholics who are seeking answers to questions about returning to the Church. This ongoing series offers informal sharing and an update on the Catholic Church.

Spiritual Gifts Discernment

At Baptism, each of us was given at least one spiritual gift, known as a charism. Spiritual gifts are special abilities which are intended to represent Christ within us and to be a channel of God’s goodness for others. According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church (2003), all charisms ought to be exercised in service to God. We invite you to discover your spiritual gifts by participating in our Spiritual Gifts Discernment Process where you will have the opportunity to identify your charisms and discover God’s will for your life.
