Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are parishioners who have received special training from the pastor, and training and certification from the Diocesan Office for Worship.  This ministry is used in settings where there are insufficient priests and deacons to properly facilitate the distibution of Holy Communion.

   In addition to assisting at mass, Eucharistic Ministers are encouraged to take Holy Communion to Catholics who are homebound, hospitalized, or residents of nursing homes.  Some hospitals and nursing homes may require that the Extraordinary Minister receive orientation.  The institution may also require a background check. 

Extraordinary Ministers for

 -  Hospitals and Homebound , please contact Diane Friebert 440-774-2302.

 -  Nursing Homes, please call Joe McCormick 440-775-7811.

Welcome to Sacred Heart in Oberlin, Oh
GRATEFUL GIVING

jesus3 On the weekend of September 10/11 our parish was introduced to the Grateful Giving Program.  Over a three week period two of our parishioners and I have asked all of us to reflect on how God has blessed us in life and to consider how we are showing our gratitude to the Lord and those who do his work.  One day God will require an accounting for the use that each of us has made of the goods that have been entrusted to us.  He will judge us on what we have done with what we were given, that is, what kind of steward we were.  Good stewards know that the gifts God has given them are to be used to meet not just their own needs but the needs of their brothers and sisters.  For stewardship to be more than a single act of generosity, it must have two characteristics.  1) It must be planned.  While the financial aspect of stewardship is the most obvious, planning how to give one’s time and talents is just as important. 2) It must be sacrificial. 

It’s not enough to give out of our excess.  We have to give in a way that costs.  It must be a “felt gift”.  That’s why true stewardship is a form of spirituality.  It’s a way of life based on an attitude of gratitude to God, which shows itself in tangible ways in one’s life. 

Everyone in the parish is being asked to consider an increase in what they are currently contributing in our offertory collection.  Such a collective increase will put us in better financial standing, enabling us to better support our present organizations and ministries, especially those that assist those who are in need.

I do ask everyone to give prayerful consideration to this request and to respond in as generous a way as you can.

Fr. Cole
