As we continue to work thru our re-opening phases, please know that we are doing everything that we can to be in compliance with our diretives from His Grace Bishop Paul. We look forward to when we can all worship together again. Until then, know that each and everyone of you are being prayed for and dearly missed! Should a family or individual desire to come to the church to spend time in prayer and reflection, and participate in Holy Confession and to receive Holy Communion from the reserved sacrament during anytime during the week from Monday to Saturday, please call Fr. Emilian. Social Distance and safety measures will be taken in order for the faithful to be able to have contact with their parish and the sacraments of the church during the pandemic. God Bless!
GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST - GLORY BE FOREVER!

Local Heros Recognized - 01/16/2019
On Wednesday, January 16, 2019 the City of Maple Heights recognized two young men who on the evening of December 23, 2018, took action and saved the lives of two local residents. You can read about these two young gentlemen in the link below. Fr. Emilian and several parishoners were present during this wonderful event and reception. State and local officials were there as well as the two young men, their families, and the family they saved. Fr. Emilian offered two prayers for the men, families, First Responders, and for the City of Maple Heights. He also offered the men and the family a very nice donation to reward them for their selfless act of heroism. We are very proud of these young men, and our city of Maple Heights for honoring them!
