Catholic Charities 2018 and Parish Online Giving

St. Bernard Parish is proud to be part of the Diocesan-wide Catholic Charities Appeal that serves over 400,000 people in the 8 Northeast Counties of Ohio.  People of all ages and races and religions find and experience the Mercy of God because of your charitable giving.

Below is a video hosted by Bishop Nelson Perez, Bishop of Cleveland, about just three of the many agencies that make up Catholic Charities of Cleveland.  The first agency, Camp Christopher, has been here in Summit County for generations.

If you have already responded to this year’s Appeal – THANK YOU!  The In-pew Appeal will be held at St. Bernard the weekend of February 10/11, and at St. Mary Parish, on February 18.

Thank you for all you do in the name of the Lord.  Find more information at: www.catholiccomunity.org
