Friday, August 15, is The Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. For Catholics in the United States, it is a holy day of obligation, to be observed with Mass and the interruption of our regular routine so that we may reflect and rejoice in God's gracious gift of eternal life reflected in the mystery of Mary's own share in the Resurrection of Christ. In our parish, whose first church was dedicated to Saint Mary of the Assumption, we will celebrate the holy day with a Vigil Mass at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, and Mass at 8:30 a.m. on Friday.
We are at 138.3% of our goal of $23,649! As of July 28 we have received $32,700 in gifts & pledges. Remember, any amount donated which exceeds our target is returned to our parish. Pledge envelopes are available in the back of church and in the church office. For more information on this year's theme, "Christ the Sure Foundation", or to make a pledge online, visit the Columbus Diocese's website for the Bishop's Annual Appeal. Thank you for your continued generosity to Saint Colman of Cloyne!

Made from wheat starch and water, the gluten content of these breads is less than 0.01%. The Church is aware that any amount of gluten is harmful for some persons, so it is strongly recommended that individuals consult their physicians to determine the suitability of this low-gluten bread. If it is determined that a person can ingest this bread safely, please contact Fr. Rogers or one of the sacristans prior to the beginning of Mass and hosts shall be consecrated for consumption in a separate pyx to avoid contact with the regular wheat hosts. The priest presiding will be responsible for distributing the low-gluten host. If you have any questions, please contact Fr. Rogers at the parish office.
The Finance Committee has decided to start a scholarship fund for Religious Education to enable our children to participate in any opportunity regardless of ability to pay. This fund would help pay PSR tuition as well as to help pay fees associated with youth rallies or other field trip events. The National Catholic Youth Conference will be this November, and will cost each attendee in excess of $500. This opportunity is too important to miss due to lack of financial resources. Please consider donating to this important fund. We will have a special collection periodically, but if you would like to give now, please mark your check or envelope "Scholarship Fund" and place it in the offering basket, or mail it to or bring it in to the parish office. Thank you for your support of our youth!
Despite the declaration from local news sources that everything has been worked out between people of faith, those who believe in the First Amendment and the administration's mandates affecting certain aspects of health care, it has not. Please visit the USCCB website to remain informed. Do not rely on popular media alone. Our bishops continue to encourage us to write and call our representatives. There is a sample letter available on the website – it may also be emailed, but phone calls and letters are more effective.
If you click here and type in your zip code, it will give you information on how to contact your representative. If you click here, you will be given the addresses, phone numbers, and emails of our senators. Please take part in this effort.
