Act of Spiritual Communion:  My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.  Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You as if You were already there, and I unite myself wholly to You.  Never permit me to be separated from You. 
~St. Alphonsus Liguori  

   

News from the Diocese of Cleveland: With all we’ve experienced during the pandemic, we’ve all missed a lot: Our friends, our family, and our parish communities.  But the love of God and peace of Christ still burn brightly in our hearts. As we hope the pandemic is in its final stages, many are returning to their parishes.  The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland invites you to watch this short video that explains there is hope on the horizon as we continue to grow our faith in God:  https://vimeo.com/539331363/8c213f9bce

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion —inexhaustible, look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us, that in difficult moments we might not despair nor become despondent, but with great confidence submit ourselves to Your holy will, which is Love and Mercy itself.  Amen.  

The church is open every Wednesday for Eucharistic Adoration from 9:00AM to 6:30PM.  Come and spend time in prayer in the Eucharistic presence of our Lord. Please park in the handicap lot next to the church and enter through one of the side doors under the carport. 

“It is by taking time out to be with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament that this relationship with Our Lord begins to increase, and grow and blossom. ...Adoration builds community. The Eucharist is the sacrament of unity, Jesus unifying His people. Through the intimacy of quiet prayer with Jesus, one experiences the personal love of the Savior and grasps the reality that we are all one with the whole Body of Christ.” ~ St. John Paul II

Heart of a Shepherd Diocesan Campaign:  St. Bridget of Kildare Parish has joined the Heart of a Shepherd campaign for the Diocese of Cleveland. This is an extraordinary Diocesan-wide effort to better meet and serve the needs of the St. Mary and Borromeo seminaries, current seminarians, and our newly-ordained and retired clergy via a renovation to the seminaries, support to clergy pensions, and relief for clergy tuition debt.  

This $30 million campaign will support our mission to create an environment that fosters spiritual, social, academic growth and accompaniment.  St. Bridget of Kildare Parish will benefit as well.  Half of every dollar raised toward this effort will support the transformation of the school gym into a parish hall.   Over the next couple of months, you will be hearing more about the Heart of a Shepherd campaign and how you may join us in supporting this historic initiative.  

Thank you to those who attended our Campaign Reception on May 3rd.  For those that were unable to attend, you will have another opportunity to learn more.  We have invited a special guest to speak about the campaign at all Masses the weekend of May 8th & 9th.    

Annual May Crowning ~ Mother's Day, Sunday, May 9th at the conclusion of the 12:00 Noon Mass:  In a very special way, this year the Ladies Guild will honor all our mothers, while honoring Mary, our Blessed Mother, at the 12:00 Noon Mass on Mother's Day, May 9th.  Mary was chosen by God to bear His Son.  She listened to God's Word, kept it in her heart, and remained close to her Son, all the way to the foot of the cross.  A wreath of flowers will adorn our statue of Mary and a garland of flowers will be placed on her head during this beautiful celebration.  

Baptism Information and Faith Formation Session, Sunday, June 6th after the 12:00 Noon Mass:  The Sacrament of Baptism is the foundation of our Christian faith and the door to the Church.  Parents are asked to attend a Baptism Information and Faith Enrichment Session before scheduling the baptism of their first child.  Sessions are held in February, June and October.  Our next session will take place on Sunday, June 6th following the 12:00 Noon Mass in the school building.  To register or for more information, contact Dana Steimle in the Catechetical Office at sbkpsr@gmail.com or 440-886-1468, x17 by Thursday, June 3rd.
