Jesus and the Eucharist Video Study
Feel free to join us even if you missed a week or two!

You are invited to grow closer to Jesus alongside fellow parishioners through the Jesus and the Eucharist 7-week study. This study was specifically designed for the National Eucharistic Revival, and we will be joining many other parishes throughout the United States in participating in this small group study. Each session is full of rich theological content, powerful testimonies, and unique and timely messages from individual bishops across the country. This is a great opportunity to dive more deeply into the richness of our Eucharistic faith. Two sessions are being provided: one at St. Julie’s on Monday evenings beginning June 17 and one at St. Peter’s on Wednesday afternoons beginning June 19. Please register by calling the parish office at 440-327-1978, or online at https://www.stpeternr.org/jesus-and-the-eucharist-study. (Link is corrected as of 5/31/2024.)

Update on Our Ukraine Family - July 1, 2024

It’s hard to believe that we are only 6 months into our journey with the Bryiovskyis. We have achieved a lot together.

The boys finished the school term June 21st and went to a church camp for a week. Daniel, Artur and Suisanna are all enjoying all of the sports for which you have so generously provided equipment.  One of the favorite pastimes for the whole family is swimming. Another donation allowed them to get a family pass to all the public pools in Parma. They take advantage of that as often as they can.

Both Vitalii and Nadiia now have their Ohio Driver licenses! They still have the use a car from Vitalii’s brother, but Vitalii took a big step this past month. Using his pay from his job at the logistics company and with some help from his boss, he was able to buy a car from a salvage yard. The car needs a lot of work but because Vitalii was a mechanic in Ukraine, he will be able to make the repairs himself over the next months. We are very happy that he took this initiative to plan ahead for when his brother will need his car back.

We continue to explore the options to get Vitalii a CDL license to allow him to get a position that not only allows him to use his mechanic skills, but also opens the option of truck driving. This process has been more challenging than anticipated.

We are also exploring ideas with Nadiia to use her sewing skills to help support the family needs.

This past week, we had a couple of challenges at the house because the A/C went out and then there was a backup in the basement from the storm sewer. Our landlord was very responsive to both issues. We made a great team with the family doing a lot of “bailing” until the plumber could get there. The only “casualty” was an area rug in the basement. We are hoping a good cleaning will resolve that.

It’s hard to explain how grateful the family is for all of the help we have given.  We are truly a team giving “A Hand Up and Not a Hand Out.” 

It is only though your generosity we can continue to do so. 

Please continue to support us with your prayers and also financially when you can.

From the desk of Fr. Bob Franco

from the bulletin for June 30, 2024
The most recent message from Fr. Bob is always available in the bulletin.

Dear Parishioners,

 

For all our students out there, I have some good news. The good news is that Vacation Bible School will be taking place at St. Peter Parish in less than a month. Last year St. Julie’s hosted Vacation Bible School.  This year it is St. Peter’s turn.  Details are in this bulletin. Volunteers are also needed. Please check it out and get ready to take the plunge into Scuba!

 

This coming Thursday is Independence Day. I have decided to have only one Mass in North Ridgeville on the  four major civil holidays though the year. Memorial Day will be at St. Peter Parish. Labor Day will be at St. Julie Parish. Independence Day and Thanksgiving will be rotated between the parishes.

 

This year, Independence Day will be at St. Julie Parish. Mass will be at 9:00 a.m. And all are more than welcome as we celebrate our country’s 248th birthday. With all our flaws as a nation, I encourage you to gather this Thursday and thank God for our country and pray that God shed his grace on us in fresh and needed ways.

 

Greg Dubecky, the part-time maintenance man at St. Julie Parish, will be stepping back from his role. He has done a wonderful job and will be missed. Consequently, St. Julie Parish is looking for a part time maintenance man. If you are interested in this position, please inquire at the office of St. Julie Parish, and fill out an application.

 

Earlier this week I was able to participate at the “Ballpark Mass” with Bishop Malesic and over a 1000 Catholics at Canal Park in Akron. After an inspiring Mass we had a half-mile procession with the Blessed Sacrament through the streets of Akron to St. Bernard Church. During the Mass Bishop Malesic blessed the delegates of the Diocese of Cleveland who will be participating in the National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis in mid-July. I am grateful for the blessing and am looking forward to the gathering in Indianapolis, an event that we pray will rekindle the faith of many Catholics.

 

I was also privileged to visit our neighboring parish, St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Avon as they hosted the National Pilgrim Our Lady of Fatima Virgin Statue that travels around the United States. I was encouraged by the many people who were participating in the devotional practices that had been arranged that day at St. Mary’s, as well as the confessions that I heard. May our Lady, the Immaculate Conception, intercede for our country, especially during this election year.

 

Our readings this weekend encourage our faith in Jesus Christ, who intervenes in the needs of people. The scriptures record some of the more outstanding of Jesus works, like this woman who suffered for 12 years at the hands of physicians who could not really heal her. She touched the hem of Jesus’ garment and was healed. Or like the daughter of the synagogue official Jairus, whom Jesus raised from the dead.

 

St. John wrote at the end of his gospel, there are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written. (John 21:25) I think of the millions of people that Jesus touched, perhaps less dramatically, but life-changing none the less. As we welcome Jesus in the Eucharist, let us confidently bring him our needs, knowing that power inexhaustibly flows from Him.

In Christ, 

Fr. Bob Franco
