Funeral Meal Ministry
SHOJ hosts a meal for family and friends of a deceased parishioner after a funeral. Parishioners are invited to assist by serving on a rotating team to provide setup, serving, making of food and clean up of the funeral meal. To serve on a Funeral Meal Ministry team contact the Parish office.
Meetings are held in the Andes Room of the church lower level on the third Wednesday of each month from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information, please contact Jeff Flaherty at 330-715-2282 or 330-336-3049 or send him an email by clicking here.
Membership in the Legion of Mary answers the call to apostleship. To give Christ to every soul is the work of the Legion apostolate. Legionaries concern themselves with the Spiritual Works of Mercy, charitably answering “Yes” to the question “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
Active legionaries (prayer + work) visit in pairs, Catholics and lapsed Catholics, the sick, bereaved, those new to the parish, families, and the elderly, going where they are sent, knowing, and acting on their conviction that “to love another in the highest sense of the word is to wish the other the eternal possession of God and lead him to it”.
Auxiliary legionaries (prayer only) pray the Rosary and the Legion Tessera prayer daily, giving their prayers to Our Blessed Mother, and sharing in all the prayers and works of the millions of members throughout the world. Join the Legion of Mary and become medicine to our country that is more and more without God.
Pope Paul said what he liked best about the Legion of Mary was that it knew how to utilize the little people of the world. Come and see how easy, how beautiful, how wonderful it is to serve the Lord! Contact Shari Krunich at 330.336.0612.
This is a group for anyone called by words like those spoken by the pope at World Youth Day: “Young people, do not be afraid of being a saint!” The world needs heroes and saints who show what the grace of God can do. Mary was only 14 or 15 when God performed His greatest work with her “yes.” Volunteers must complete the Volunteer Requirements. If interested in helping as an adult leader or joining the Junior Legion of Mary contact Patti Hunt at 330.335.5203.
