Announcements & News


Archbishop Schnurr and the Ohio Bishops Conference announced on Monday March 16 that effective immediately, all parishes are to cease the public celebration of all Masses and liturgies. A dispensation from the Sunday obligation has been granted through Easter Sunday. There is no doubt that this decision was not taken lightly and speaks to the seriousness of the current COVID-19, Corona-virus outbreak. My heart breaks at the thought of not celebrating Holy Week and Easter together. However, I am writing to let you know how we are going to attempt to meet your spiritual needs during this trying period.

Holy Mass will be live streamed each day on the Saints Peter and Paul Facebook account from Mary Our Mother Chapel in the Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parish Center.

The parish mission takes its origin from Jesus’ mission who was … to bring good news to the poor. …to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. (Luke 4: 18-19) Our parish has defined this for us in our “Mission Statement”: They devoted themselves to the teaching of the Apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and the prayers. (Acts 2:42)
