A Letter from Our Pastor

Dear Parishioners,

The time has come to start planning for our upcoming first-ever mission fund-raising event IIA Heart for Mission: Auction, Dinner and Dancell at Queen of Heaven Parish. This event will benefit the Youth Group mission trip to San Lucas Mission in Guatemala. There are twenty youth and adults who will be making their first-ever mission trip to San Lucas.

Many countless hours will be needed by many volunteers to organize this fun-filled parish-wide event on Saturday, February 9th, at 5:30 p.m., in the Parish Life Center. God has given us all special talents and abilities. To show your appreciation to Queen of Heaven Parish, I am encouraging you to express your talents and volunteer for this event. This will be an opportunity for you and your family to use your talents to live out your life of faith in God.

Your support for this event will ensure that we create an environment which leads our youth into a relationship with God through spiritual, educational, emotional, and social experiences by missionary outreach.

You can sign up to volunteer in the Gathering Space after all Masses the next three weekends starting this weekend, or stop by or call the church office at 330-896-2345. You can also donate a new item or a themed basket of items for our Silent Auction (details are listed on the bulletin insert).

May God, who has begun the good work in you, bring it to completion, and may the Holy Spirit continue to inspire the good works at Queen of Heaven.

God Bless You Always,
Father David R. Durkee, Pastor
