THE GIVING TREE
There are a few ornaments left on the tree. We would like all gifts to be returned by December 11th. All gifts can be put under the tree in the vestibule or can make arrangements to drop off at the church. If you have any questions please call the parish office at 216-961-8331.
If you or someone you know is interested in entering the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil next April, convert classes will be forming in October. These classes are intended for those who have not been baptized. Christians of other denominations who are interested in full reception in the Catholic Church are also welcome. For more information, please contact the Parish office. Thank you!
BREAKFAST WITH SANTA
Bring the family down for a Breakfast with Santa on December 18th,2016 from 9:00am-1:00pm in The Parish Hall. The tickets will be $7.00 a person,if you would like to have your picture taken with Santa we can do that for an additional $3.00. We will have a nice breakfast, coffee, juice, and then a visit from Santa Claus who has a gift for every child. If you would like to purchase tickets or need more information please call the parish office or look for the order forms soon in the vestibule of the church.
Order forms are available in the Church or the Parish Office for those who would like to order a space "In Memory" of a deceased loved one on the extended Memorial Wall at the Blessed Virgin's Shrine on the North Side of the Church. Since it has been 16 years since the initial Wall was installed, the prices of granite have increased. The sizes of the memorials will be exactly the same as the existing ones to preserve continuity. There are two sizes available: 9"x12" for $499.00 each, and 18"x24" for $2,999. each. Once we have all the spaces filled, we will install the Memorial Wall.
PARISH FOOD PANTRY
The St. Rocco Food Pantry will distribute food the second and fourth Friday of every month from 9:00am - 11:00am.

The Mercedarian Order will be celebrating its 800th Anniversary of Foundation in 1218. In preparation for that Jubilee Year, each preceding year has been dedicated to a proper devotion of the Order. The year 1215 is dedicated to the Patriarch and Founder of the Order, St. Peter Nolasco. There are several images of St. Peter in our church and the most prominent being his statue in the grotto between the Pieta and Mother Cabrini.
