FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: Today I would like to share with you some updates on our different maintenance and upgrade needs at our parish. We will soon begin to repair windows in the classrooms and other adjacent rooms (in total 13 windows). For many years, the mechanism for opening and closing these windows has been broken and thus effectively the windows became useless for us (other than letting the light in). On warm days and now at the time of health crisis it is essential to have a way to circulate air in the rooms if we would like to use them. Secondly, in the month of February we will address the problem with the rectory basement walls. During even slightly heavy rains water gushes into the basement and creates damage in the walls and the floor. A water-collecting basin and a sump pump will be installed to remedy this issue. Thirdly, we need to repair our boiler and a radiator. In fact, we have already taken out the leaking radiator from the vestibule. As for the future projects and issues, the northeast corner in the Mindszenty Room has an extensive water damage and will have to be addressed rather soon. In addition, I would like to modify slightly our confessionals so that they are more private.

As you have noticed, the financial report was posted on the bulletin boards by the main entrance of the church. For the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2020 we had a deficit of $5,484.37. I ask everyone, who can allow it, to continue to support OUR parish with your regular weekly offerings and any additional support to meet our everyday needs in keeping our facilities in good working order. I especially appeal to those who watch our Sunday Masses at home to mail in your donations or donate online with your credit card or PayPal at https://stemeric.com/donations/. May God reward your kindness.

LAST WEEKEND’S COLLECTION: Sunday Offering: $1,699. Second collection (Latin America-El Salvador) $151. Donations in loving memory of Emma Peller: $100 by Anonymous; Donations in loving memory of Attila Németh: $50 by Anonymous. Donations in loving memory of János Géréby: $50 by Zoltán Szabó. Thank you for your generosity in supporting our parish .

PORK and RICE SAUSAGE TAKEOUT: Due to the current social restrictions, we will not have our traditional dinner  (and the accompanying “Mardi Gras” festivities) this year. Instead, we offer a takeout of uncooked pork or rice sausages on February 13/14. To order please call by February 6 one of the ladies, Marika Zsula 216-676-5863 or Mária Mészáros 440-331-0391.  The price for 3lb of uncooked pork sausage or uncooked rice sausage is $18. You may pay for the order (1) online on our St. Emeric website https://stemeric.com/donations/ ; (2) send in the check; (3) or, place an exact amount in an unsealed envelope when picking up your order (no change will be given). Prepay payment method #1 or method #2 would be most helpful, if at all possible. Thank you for your support of St. Emeric parish.
