BLESSING OF GRADUATES
On May 25 at 12:00 pm, we invite graduates (high school or college) and their families to Holy Spirit for a blessing in celebration of your graduation. You can wear your cap and gown, if you desire and invite fellow graduates to attend as well.

CELEBRATE WORLD CHILDREN’S DAY!
Making the world a better place for everyone starts with prayer and little steps like saying hello, sorry, or thank you. “Our world will change if we all begin with these little things, without being ashamed to take small steps, one at a time,” said Pope Francis in a letter to children announcing the special event. World Children’s Day is May 25-26, 2024 in Vatican City and we as the local Church extend our gratitude for the energy, excitement and enthusiasm that children add to our faith community. Happy World Children’s Day!

FIRST STEP FOR CHANGE
Catholic Charities will hold its annual First Step for Change campaign again this year, honoring the faith, humility and love it takes to raise a child, and recognizing that many parents lack adequate financial resources for their children. Funds raised through this campaign assist low-income expectant parents and families with food, formula, clothing, diapers, and other items essential to a child’s health, safety and well-being. Each family interested in participating is asked to pick up a FIRST STEP PACKET after Mass this weekend. Take the FIRST STEP PACKET home, learn about the program, prayerfully consider a gift, and return your envelopes to our Parish by June 30th. All money collected by our Parish will help to meet the needs in our own community! Thank you for joining us in supporting this pro-life campaign.

ODJFS SEEKS FOSTER FAMILIES
It takes 100% heart to foster and adopt in Ohio. Every year, people open their homes to children in need – and they don’t all have fancy houses or graduate degrees. What they do have is 100% heart. Thousands of children in Ohio need stable, consistent, and loving homes. Becoming a kinship, foster, or adoptive parent is a serious, yet rewarding experience that requires research and preparation. Children are the future of our communities. It is up to each of us to make sure that they have families to help them grow and be safe. Children who have been abused or neglected need caring, compassionate people to be willing to open their hearts and homes as foster families or adoptive parents. If you or someone you know might be interested in taking on the challenges and rewards of becoming a foster or adoptive parent, please use this link to learn more.

MAGNIFICAT OF STARK COUNTY
Magnificat of Stark County, a ministry to Catholic women, invites you to a breakfast on Saturday June 8th. Doors open at 8:00 Mass at 8:30am. Please join us for a special time of fellowship and sharing. Our guest speaker is Holly Linger.
Holly is a parishioner of St. Hilary’s in Fairlawn. She and her husband, Tim, are the parents of five children. From an early age, Holly had a strong faith and a powerful encounter with God. Throughout the years, many life circumstances would challenge this faith. During her freshman year of high school, an airplane crash caused her family to take in three orphaned children. Family life suddenly changed dramatically. Then in college, Holly met her future husband, Tim, a Protestant. Leaving the Catholic Church to explore non-denominational fellowship as a newlywed, her faith would be shaken like never before with a complicated pregnancy. Their firstborn son, Jacob, would live only three months. Desperate to baptize him at the news that doctors couldn’t save his life, Holly began to search for the truth about infant baptism. Holly and Tim would lose two more infant children. Through it all, God was slowly revealing the truth of the Catholic Church. Cost: $25 Mail-in/$26 Online. For more information about our speaker and to make your reservation visit magnificatstark.weebly.com or call Sally Kohring at 330-484-1623. Reservations cannot be accepted after June 1st, 2024. New Location -Holiday Inn Canton, 4520 Everhard Road NW, Canton.
