Jesus and the Eucharist Video Study

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 (Link is corrected as of 5/31/2024.)

Nationwide Invitation to Prayer!

On March 26, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a case that has the potential to make a major impact in the widespread accessibility of chemical abortion, which is now the most common form of abortion in the United States.


The USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities, along with Conference President Archbishop Timothy Broglio, is inviting Catholics to join a focused effort of prayer for the end of abortion and the protection of women and preborn children, beginning on March 25, the eve of the oral arguments. While the case is not about ending chemical abortion, it can restore limitations that the FDA has overridden. When a decision is released, most likely in June, a public and political reaction similar to the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe v. Wade is anticipated.  

Please click here for additional details, and specifically a prayer to St. Joseph. A large print version of the prayer is available here.

We need your help to make this meal possible so please sign up in the vestibule of the Church, or call or text Joanne Pogros at 440-391-8984, to bring food and/or to help serve the meals and "deliver" to the drive through.

From the desk of Fr. Bob Franco

from the bulletin for June 16, 2024
The most recent message from Fr. Bob is always available in the bulletin.

Dear Parishioners,


Last Wednesday I celebrated my 42nd Anniversary as a priest. One priest who trained in Philadelphia joined the twelve men ordained for the priesthood for the Diocese of Cleveland that day. Of those thirteen priests, one has passed away, two have left active ministry, three have retired, one is semi-retired and six of us soldier on. Two quick thoughts:

  1. Tempus Fugit: Time flies! I am not sure what 42 years is supposed to feel like, but it has flown by. The need to adapt, learn, and grow has made time fly by.

  2. Things change! Some things grew-like overseeing two parishes instead of one. Other things shrank, like the number of priests and the number of people attending Mass.

I pray that God grant me the graces and health I need to continue to serve the people of North  Ridgeville. Together, we will do something beautiful for God.


There are a couple of things on the horizon this summer that could be a great blessing to you and to people you know and care about:

  1. The Jesus and the Eucharist video series begins this Monday evening at St. Julie Parish and this Wednesday afternoon at St. Peter Parish. This video series includes top notch presenters from a variety of venues. Small group discussion is part of the series. Please see page 6 for details and all are welcome.

  2. St. Peter Parish will be hosting a charismatic Mass on Friday, June 21. This Mass includes a time of joy-filled praise from 7:00-7:30 PM and healing prayer after the Mass. More than a spiritual “pick me up”, this is a time to encounter the Lord in a deeper way. All are welcome.


Next week, on Monday, June 24, Bishop Malesic will be celebrating a special outdoor Mass at Canal Park Baseball Stadium (Home of the Rubber Ducks AA baseball team). This Mass will include a special “send off” blessing for those from our Diocese who will be participating in the National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis from July 17-21. Jessica Angelo from St. Julie Parish, Niki Sherman from St. Peter Parish and I will be participating in this historic Congress in July.


This Mass is free and open to the public. You are asked to register at under the Events tab. This will help organizers plan for Holy Communion as well as notify people in case of a rainout. Hope to see you there.


This is Father’s Day weekend. I want to encourage fathers to embrace their role by:

  1. Loving your wife. Nothing makes children feel more secure than when husbands love their lives in a genuine and sacrificial way.

  2. Being present to your children. Children greatly desire to know that their father is pleased with them. Being present to them, encouraging them, telling them that you are proud of them, meets a deep desire in every child’s heart.

  3. Setting boundaries for your children. Here dads and moms need to work together as a team. Their unified approach to age-appropriate discipline will communicate love to your children on a deeper level. Fair and consistent discipline will protect your children from harmful influences and make them feel secure.

I pray that all fathers, grandfathers, and all who take the role of father be filled with wisdom and the grace to love sacrificially. A father’s love and presence go far laying the foundation for a happy and holy family. God bless you, fathers!


Our gospel today highlights the power of seeds. Little seeds change the face of the earth. The truth of the Kingdom, when embraced by faith in an open soul, will change the direction of a person. The seeds that Jesus speaks of presuppose the care of a farmer, as well watering and sunshine. This combination (seed, farmer’s care, nutrition) change landscapes.


Christ’s teaching is powerful and transformative. May it be embraced and cared for by us who desire to bear fruit for God’s glory!

In Christ,

Fr. Bob Franco
