VIDEO HELP: We are preparing for our new camera and videotaping system in the church for Masses and other events held in the church. If you would like to run the cameras or be part of the production, please contact George Peko @ email@example.com or Father Lane, SSS @ firstname.lastname@example.org. We would appreciate a regular team to join the two already in place at the Saturday 4:30 PM Mass and during the day for Funeral Mass broadcasts.
GUARINO’S APPRECIATION DAY: Guarino’s in Little Italy, 12309 Mayfield Road, will be hosting a Saint Paschal Baylon Appreciation day at the restaurant on Tuesday, September 8. I miss seeing you all on Monday nights for our take-out meals. This is a wonderful opportunity to gather here in the garden (so pray for nice weather). Please make a reservation through Rachel at 216-650-4582 for lunch or dinner. $10 pasta at the restaurant with a portion of the proceeds going back to the church. Additional charge for salad, soup, alcoholic beverages, and gratuity. We are grateful to Guarino’s for how they supported SPB – and they are grateful for how we supported them during this challenging time to be in business. Let’s celebrate this together!
God bless you! You are in my prayers.

7th & 8th Grade Parents-We Need YOU!
We are asking that each family (mom, dad, grandma, etc.) choose at least two days to volunteer each time slot being 11:10 am-12:50 pm. There are many, many time slots open! We are so grateful for the help!
This is a great way for you to interact with your child and his/her classmates during the school day! Recess Volunteers should arrive to school at 11:10 and check in at the office. Duties will include supervising students at recess, escorting the students to and from the school doors. Volunteers will be with one school staff member each day to help direct.
Remember that after your two volunteer time slots, you are done for the year, as each month is assigned to a different grade.
COVID-19 Volunteer Protocol: all recess volunteers are required to wear a mask and have their temperature checked when they arrive at school.
Ladies Guild First Meeting
Please join us for a Ladies Guild Zoom Meeting next Thursday, September 10th at 7:30pm for the first Ladies Guild meeting of the year! Details in the link below:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mhlJZuaozSPZny5qPU4u23TK9RFjpzmmxYi4trcRlUE/edit
