2021 Charity In Love

In this section of the report, you will find the numbers of how many thousands of people we reached digitally, as well as how many we served and fed during our last fiscal year. You will also find our Day School and PSR attendance and sacramental numbers. These figure are a testament to the dedication of our Parish and School Staff who kept mission and ministry at the forefront of a very trying year. 

Although most of 2020 and much of 2021 were spent with strict protocols due to the pandemic, our ministries never stopped. We were able to work with our friends at the shelters and utilize our advanced technology to make sure that we continued to reach and serve as many people as possible. It was a challenge that our Parish accepted with open arms, and from the feedback we have received from many, it was much appreciated during very uncertain and difficult times. As always, we would not be able to do this without the generosity and support of our parishioners. Because of your donations to our Charity in Love fund, St. Vincent DePaul, and the monthly designated diocesan collections, we were able to provide $37,000 to 16 different organizations that help those in need. In addition to the monetary donations to help other organizations, we used that money to serve over 4,000 meals to the residents at St. Elizabeth Center as well as three holiday meals at St. Frances Xavier Cabrini in Lorain. Your generosity helps us serve those very close to us, within our own communities, who are struggling. These numbers are a true display of faith in action, and a true financial achievement for our ministry as a Parish community!
