FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: I don’t have much space left in this column, so I just wish all of you a grace-filled Holy Week!

HOLY NIGHT HIKE: On Holy Thursday (March 28, 2024) the Diocese has asked many churches throughout the Diocese to remain open after the Evening Mass until 11 PM for people to come and worship the Eucharist at their altar of reposition. In Ohio City and Tremont, seven (7) of these churches are within walking distance of each other (we are one of them) and they are encouraging young adults (or anyone) to walk together and visit these seven churches on Holy Thursday evening. You don’t Have to be Catholic, a practicing Catholic, or even believe in God to participate. You can start the pilgrimage walk at any of the churches listed below:

  1. Andrew Kim, 2310 West 14th St., Cleveland, OH 44113-3613
  2. Augustine, 2486 West 14th St., Cleveland, OH 44113-4449
  3. Emeric, 1860 West 22nd St., Cleveland, OH 44113-3185
  4. John Cantius, 906 College Ave., Cleveland, OH 44113-4494
  5. Malachi. 2459 Washington Ave., Cleveland, OH 44113-2380
  6. Patrick on Bridge Ave, 3602 Bridge Ave., Cleveland, OH 44113-3314
  7. Wendelin, 2281 Columbus Rd., Cleveland, OH 44113-4230

CONFESSIONS: In preparation for Easter, I will hear confessions before the Lenten Sunday Mass 10:20–10:50AM in the Infant Jesus of Prague classroom (to the left of the sanctuary, that is the side of the Market parking lot). Please, note also the other opportunity for confessions on Tuesday, March 26, 6-7PM.

PALM BRANCHES FROM LAST YEAR: The palms received on Palm Sunday are blessed. If we no longer wish them to have displayed or kept in our homes, they should be either burned or buried in the ground. If you would like to dispose of the old palm branches, please bring them to the church by March 27.

CHILDREN’S CATECHETICAL PROGRAM: the next session will be on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 7, after the 11AM Mass. All children are welcome. It will last about 15 minutes.

NEXT WEEK’S GOOD FRIDAY COLLECTION is taken up for the Christians in the Holy Land. The collection supports the church minister in parishes, provides Catholic schools, and offers religious education, and helps preserve the sacred shrines. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

GOOD FRIDAY FASTING (for 18-59 years old) and ABSTINENCE (for 14 years and up): Good Friday is a day of abstinence from meat and also a day of fast, that is, only one full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. The laws on abstinence and fast bind under the pain of mortal sin.

HOMEBOUND PARISHIONERS, who at this Lent/Easter time would like to receive the sacrament of confession and Eucharist, or possibly also anointing of the sick, please call the rectory at 216-965-0061 to schedule a mutually agreeable time. Thank you.

LAST WEEKEND’S COLLECTION: Collection: $2,205; Renovation fund: $200. May God reward your generosity in supporting the church. Thank you for sending in your donations by mail or using our website https://stemeric.com/donations/.

CONFESSIONS (Fr. Boksay will be here as well)

Tuesday, March 26, 6-7PM

FOCUSED EFFORT ON PRO-LIFE 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, through June. 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 PRAY FOR THE SICK, especially for Bev Kimar, Teréz Kalász, Lajos Boday, Márta Takács, Zsuzsanna Hunyadi, Kathy Szabó, Dorothy Fromhercz, Alex Szaday, Virginia Kachmar, Margaret Falk, Mária Hokky, and Phil Lucchese.

THIS SUNDAY the 11:00 AM Mass from St. Emeric church will be livestreamed at https://www.facebook.com/saintemeric/ and https://stemeric.com/

LET US PRAY THREE HAIL MARYS FOR OUR PARISH EVERY DAY!
