FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: I hope that in these days of the Easter season we continue to rejoice in the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is the greatest event in the world history and certainly the highpoint of salvation history. It gives us hope for any situation in life. Today I just have a few reminders. (1) As you could see below on April 28th, we will not have our 11AM Mass here at St. Emeric, but it will be held at the Shrine of St. Elizabeth at 11:30AM. I hope that many of you will join us also for the meal afterwards. (2) Next Sunday (4/21), we will have the youth choir provide music at Mass. (3) There are still many offertory envelops left. If you have not done so, please, pick up your 2024 year donation envelopes in the St. Stephen Room (the former Sunday office). Thank you for your generosity in supporting the parish throughout the year. (4) An electronic version of our bulletin (in PDF format) is also emailed out. I know that many of you are already on the email list. If you would like to be added to that list, please email to Ildikó Peller and request to be added.

THANK YOU: In the last couple of weeks, we had visitors at our parish whom we welcomed with a chicken paprikash lunch and then gave them a tour of the church. They also spent some time in the bazaar. The feedback was very positive. I would like to thank the volunteers who prepared and served the meal and welcomed our guests. Thank you for making a good name for our parish and helping also to fundraise for our needs.

REQUEST FOR PHOTOS FROM LANDER ROAD SHRINE: A parishioner is preparing a history of Hungarian Catholic shrines in America and is requesting that anyone who has photographs from the outdoor Our Lady of Perpetual Help Shrine that was on Lander Road at St. Margaret’s to contact Nicholas Boros at (440) 241-1661 or From the 1940s through at least the 1970s, Cleveland’s Hungarian parishes held pilgrimages to the shrine on Sundays during the summer, so hopefully there are some photos within the albums of community members that can be used to showcase and preserve the legacy of this past gem of our Cleveland Hungarian Catholic community. All photos will be scanned and returned to their owners. Thank you!

FRIENDS AND ALUMNI DINNER on April 28th at the Shrine of St. Elizabeth of Hungary. That day we will not have 11AM Mass at St. Emeric, but, we will transfer it to St. Elizabeth with a 11:30 start time. Following the Mass, the dinner will be served. Menu: Stuffed cabbage, sauerkraut, Hungarian baked chicken, parsley potatoes, salad, and dessert. Adults over 16: $25; children (11-8): $15; children under 7: free. RSVP by April 22nd: please, call Virginia at 216-246-2370 or Susan (in Hungarian) at 216-581-4333.

FOCUSED EFFORT ON PRO-LIFE PRAYER: On March 26, the U.S. Supreme Court heard 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.

LAST WEEKEND’S COLLECTION: Collection: $1,609; In loving memory of Attila Nemeth: $1,000; Renovation Fund: $2,665. May God reward your generosity in supporting the church. Thank you for sending in your donations by mail or using our website

PLEASE PRAY FOR THE DECEASED: Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen

THIS SUNDAY the 11:00 AM Mass from St. Emeric church will be livestreamed at and
