Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults


RCIA is designed to help those interested in becoming members of the Catholic Church. Our RCIA Team is eager to accompany those seeking to be baptized or, if already baptized, to become full members of the Catholic Church through the Sacraments of Confirmation & Holy Eucharist. RCIA begins in September. For more information, please contact our Parish Center office at (440) 333-2133. Remember, if you want to be a godparent or sponsor, you must be fully initiated. Help us to help you on your spiritual journey and in your future ministry.

Church Door Replacement

The Parish is replacing the Lorain Road vestibule church doors as well as the two side doors in the vestibule, including all hardware.

The existing doors are original, installed when the church was built in 1948, and they were refurbished in 1992. Due to rot, warpage and hardware failure, Father Lanning, with the recommendation from Parish Finance Council, has decided to replace the doors.

Side Vestibule Doors

Side Vestibule Doors

The estimated cost of each set of doors is approximately $12,000.

Parishioners are invited to memorialize a loved one by purchasing a set of doors or by making a significant donation towards the cost of a set of doors. The memorial will include an engraved bronze plaque adhered to either the interior or exterior brick wall adjacent to the doors.

For more information, please contact Ed Doubrava at business@samparish.org or Fr. Lanning at pastor@samparish.org.
