Update for St Anthony of Padua Parish
Parishoners for the bottom of our heart, "THANK YOU" for your continued financial support of our Parish!
Parishoners you will be receiving a letter from Parish Council this week July 26 at some point. This letter will share a what is true happening at St Anthnoy's and response from the Diocese of Cleveland. Several points to note:
1.) The Diocese of Cleveland has made it clear to St Anthony's parish council that there is "NO INTENTION OF CLOSING SAINT ANTHONY'S PARISH".
2.) Fr Greg Schaut has graciously offered to celebrate Mass for our parish by video. This means the Liturgy for the weekend will be recoreded on Saturday afternoon's and posted to our website and Facebook pages. 
3.) Currently, a pastoral plan, led by Steve Biro, Parish Catechetical Leader, is formulating a protocol in hopes of reopening of St Anthony of Padua parish the first weekend of September if a pastor or administrator is named by that time. If that is not the case, the parish will continue to video Liturgy until a pastor or administrator is named. 
4.) We need volunteers to form teams of three or four to assist in cleaning down pews as well as other places of contact in the Church building itself. Training will be provided sometime during the last week of August. 
Ideally, we will have three teams of cleaners every weekend. We are asking that an age range of 18-50 and those who desire to help but are outside this age range to please contact Steve Biro to discuss your desire to help us follow proper protocol and assist us in cleaning and sanitize the Church building.
Signed waivers will be required in order to assist.
5.) PSR will begin this fall on Sunday, September 20th. Please check back as a final decision on in-person instruction or online instruction has not been finalized as of now due to the fluidity of the COVID-19 situation. PSR will be taking place no matter what decision is made, whether it is in-person or online instruction.
6.) Daily masses at this time are suspended. This will be a major change for our parish but with the lack of priests offering a daily Mass will be almost impossible.
We are working on other alternatives for the future.
7.) For those who have Mass intentions, as soon as we reopen, we will be in contact with you to reschedule your Mass intention.
8.) Anchored Youth Ministry will resume in the next 4-5 weeks.
