MALLEY’S CANDY BARS!
SAM 8th graders will be selling Malley’s candy bars!! Proceeds help to support the 8th grade class trip to Washington D.C.
Purchase individual bars for $1 each or a case of 36 bars for $36.
Look for 8th grade students at the church doors after all Masses on October 12th/13th and October 19th/20th, or download an order form and return it to your favorite 8th grader or through the Parish Center office.
St. Angela Merici White Mass
The White Mass for health care professionals will be held on Friday, October 18th at 1 p.m., celebrating the actual feast of Saint Luke the Physician.
This is an all school mass.
Anointing of the Sick
The annual Anointing of the Sick Mass for our parish will be held on Sunday, October 20th at 2:30 pm.
This is a nice simple liturgy for those who are of advanced age or illness who wish to receive this healing sacrament.
Remember that the Sacrament of Anointing is also a sacrament of reconciliation, so those who are anointed receive forgiveness of their sins, so people do not have to go to confession prior to this mass.
BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN
Your CHANGE Can Help to Make a CHANGE in the Life of a Pregnant Woman and her Precious Baby
September 28 - October 27, 2019
Birthright of Cleveland will be conducting a Baby Bottle Collection Campaign at Saint Angela Merici during the month of October. Bottles will be available at the doors of the Church until October 27th. All are encouraged to TAKE A BOTTLE, add change, cash or check and return it to the church. This activity is an excellent way to help children to learn the joy of selfless giving.
